an Endocrine Society Thematic Issue

 

Read our special collection of journal articles, published in 2019–2020, focused on cardiovascular endocrinology! Curation of the collection was guided by Altmetric Attention Scores and Featured Article designations.

Donath and coauthors review the role of inflammation in the pathophysiology of cardiometabolic disease in Endocrine Reviews, and Di Pino and DeFronzo discuss whether the insulin resistance explains the excess cardiovascular risk seen in patients with type 2 diabetes.

Liimatta and colleagues, writing in JES, find no association between premature adrenarche and atherosclerosis or hypertension in adult women, although there was a link to central fat and impaired glucose metabolism. Haywood and colleagues investigate the role of insulin-like growth factor binding protein 1 in mice and find effects on endothelial regeneration and perfusion and angiogenesis.

Torres Fernandez and colleagues, in Endocrinology, find that liraglutide improved dyslipidemia in a rat model of polycystic ovary syndrome and had cardiovascular effects that were likely influenced by hyperandgrogenemia. Asghari and coauthors report strong promotion of adiposity and adipogenic inflammatory signaling in mice by 27-hydroxycholesterol, which also induces inflammatory responses in vascular epithelial cells.

In JCEM, Shen and colleagues find an unexplained inverse association between body mass index and risk of stroke in patients with type 2 diabetes. Cortés and colleagues find an inverse association between sex-hormone-binding globulin and carotid total plaque area in midlife women, with an echogenicity effect of estrone. And Higgins and coauthors find in apparently healthy children and adolescents a marked influence of adiposity on numerous biochemical markers, including elevated triglycerides and apolipoprotein B, which are associated with increased risk of developing cardiovascular disease in adults with type 2 diabetes.
