Biomarkers could tag chemo heart risk

A combination of biomarkers and imaging could tag chemotherapy-induced heart damage early on, cutting long-term heart risk in cancer survivors, according to a study reported at the recent San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium.

Study: Extra lipid biomarkers barely boost heart risk prediction

Predicting the risk of a heart attack and treating it through drugs and lifestyle changes could be a real lifesaver, cutting distress for individuals and their families and cutting costs to society and healthcare providers. Current biomarkers used to predict risk include total cholesterol and high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C), but adding in extra lipid biomarkers only slightly improves the predictive value, according to a study published in JAMA.

Genetic markers could point out heart attack risk

Researchers from the Cardiogram Consortium, based across Europe, the U.S. and Australia, have found genetic biomarkers for coronary artery disease that could lead to genetic signatures that could help to identify people at risk of heart attacks.

Teens' low-fiber diets expand bellies, disease risks

In adolescents, eating low-fiber diets can lead to more fat around their middles and higher levels of inflammatory biomarkers, both of which put them at higher risk of diabetes and heart disease.

HDL isn't clear-cut biomarker, study suggests

A paper in The Lancet looking at gene variants that raise HDL suggests that the links with reduced risk of heart attack aren't quite as clear-cut as we thought.
