EVA – Ageing Of The Blood Vessels Before Time

Celebrating the World Heart Day on September 29th, we bring our focus to some serious problems related to the heart and vascular system that can lead a human being towards death. One such problem is the ageing of the blood vessels before their actual time. This phenomenon is called Early Vascular Ageing or EVA. Early vascular ageing is a significant marker for cardiovascular diseases and is generally identified by stiffening of the arteries.


EVA is caused when the blood vessels show signs of ageing before they reach their chronological age. This renders the blood vessels to be less flexible and disturbs the control of blood flow from and to the heart. It may occur due to various reasons including genetic factors, environmental effects on vascular system or any damages caused to the blood vessels over time etc. As the researchers, Dr. Stephane Laurent et al. notify in their article published in the journal, Current Hypertension Reviews, EVA is a problem that needs a lot of attention and finding its prevention can ensure many cardiovascular diseases can be combatted.

The article, Early Vascular Ageing (EVA): Definitions and Clinical Applicability, explains the phenomenon, its consequences and opportunities for finding preventive measures.

Thought of the Day!


World Heart Day 2017!


World Heart Day is to spread awareness about heart disease and stroke prevention. The World Heart Federation have found that heart disease and strokes are the world’s leading cause of death, killing 17.1 million people every year – that’s more than victims of cancer, HIV and AIDS and malaria.

Overeating, lack of exercise, unhealthy diets and high blood pressure, cholesterol and glucose levels are all factors which can trigger heart disease and threaten our own lives, and those of loved ones. Heart Day was set up to drive home the message that heart problems can be prevented.

Rabies: Zero by 2030

Rabies is a transmittable viral illness that nearly always results in death after the beginning of clinical symptoms. In majority of cases, home-bred dogs are to be blamed for spreading the virus to humans, although both domestic and feral animals can be carriers of the disease. It is transmitted to humans through saliva of affected animals when they bite. Although rabies is a completely avoidable disease, it still causes several deaths everyday around the globe.


World Rabies Day is observed as the universal day of action and recognition for the prevention of rabies. World Rabies Day, on September 28, is a worldwide health initiative introduced in 2007 to increase awareness regarding the affliction of rabies and unite to boost prevention internationally. This very date is the death anniversary of Louis Pasteur, the French chemist and microbiologist, who invented the first rabies injection.

At the international meeting on rabies eradication in 2015, a joint objective of zero human mortality from canine rabies by 2030 was decided upon by the World Health Organization, World Organisation for Animal Health, UN Food and Agriculture Organization and GARC.  In assistance of this target, the theme of 2017 World Rabies Day is Rabies: Zero by 30. It is now everyone’s job to make eradication of rabies an actuality. World Rabies Day is a chance to do your bit in ending the avoidable misery and fatalities caused by rabies. One of the basic steps to assist in the avoidance and control of rabies is by inoculating your pets and educating yourself about how to avoid animals that generally spread rabies: dogs, raccoons, bats, skunks, and foxes.

World Rabies Day 2017!


World Rabies Day is observed annually to raise awareness about rabies prevention and to highlight progress in defeating this horrifying disease. Today, safe and efficacious animal and human vaccines are among the important tools that exist to eliminate human deaths from rabies while awareness is the key driver for success of communities to engage in effective rabies prevention.

Open Access Article – Control of Risk Factors for Cardiovascular Disease among Multinational Patient Population in the Arabian Gulf – Current Vascular Pharmacology

Journal: Current Vascular Pharmacology

We evaluated the control of cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk factors among patients with atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASCVD) in the Centralized Pan-Middle East Survey on the undertreatment of hypercholesterolaemia (CEPHEUS) in the Arabian Gulf. Of the 4398 enrolled patients, overall mean age was 57 ± 11 years, 60% were males, 13% were smokers, 76% had diabetes, 71% had metabolic syndrome and 78% had very high ASCVD risk status. The proportion of subjects with body mass index <25 kg/m2, HbA1c <7% (in diabetics), low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) <2.6 mmol/L (100 mg/dL) and <1.8 mmol/L (70 mg/dL) for high and very high ASCVD risk cohorts, respectively and controlled blood pressure (<140/90 mmHg) was 14, 26, 31% and 60%, respectively. Only 1.4% of the participants had all of their CVD risk factors controlled with significant differences among the countries (P < .001). CVD risk goal attainment rates were significantly lower in those with very high ASCVD risk compared with those with high ASCVD risk status (P < .001). Females were also, generally, less likely to attain goals when compared with males (P < .001).
