      BACKGROUND: Underweight, overweight, and obesity in childhood and adolescence are associated with adverse health consequences throughout the life-course. Our aim was to estimate worldwide trends in mean body-mass index (BMI) and a comprehensive set of BMI categories that cover underweight to obesity in children and adolescents, and to compare trends with those of adults.

      METHODS: We pooled 2416 population-based studies with measurements of height and weight on 128·9 million participants ...

      BACKGROUND: Comparable global data on health and nutrition of school-aged children and adolescents are scarce. We aimed to estimate age trajectories and time trends in mean height and mean body-mass index (BMI), which measures weight gain beyond what is expected from height gain, for school-aged children and adolescents.

      METHODS: For this pooled analysis, we used a database of cardiometabolic risk factors collated by the Non-Communicable Disease Risk Factor Collaboration. We applied a ...

      BACKGROUND: Raised blood pressure is an important risk factor for cardiovascular diseases and chronic kidney disease. We estimated worldwide trends in mean systolic and mean diastolic blood pressure, and the prevalence of, and number of people with, raised blood pressure, defined as systolic blood pressure of 140 mm Hg or higher or diastolic blood pressure of 90 mm Hg or higher.

      METHODS: For this analysis, we pooled national, subnational, or community population-based studies that had ...

      BACKGROUND: Isolated systolic hypertension occurs in around 8% of Chinese people aged 60 years or older. In 1988, the Systolic Hypertension in China (Syst-China) Collaborative Group started to investigate whether active treatment could reduce the incidence of stroke and other cardiovascular complications in older patients with isolated systolic hypertension.

      METHODS: All patients were initially started on masked placebo. After stratification for centre, sex and previous cardiovascular ...

      OBJECTIVE: To reach a consensus on the prognostic significance of new techniques of automated blood pressure measurement.

      METHODS: A Task Force on the prognostic significance of ambulatory blood pressure monitoring wrote this review in preparation for the Eighth International Consensus Conference (28-31 October 2001, Sendai, Japan). This synopsis was amended to account for opinions aired at the conference and to reflect the common ground reached in the discussions.

      We investigated whether protection from coronary heart disease (CHD) and stroke conferred by angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors (ACEIs) and calcium channel blockers (CCBs) in hypertensive or high-risk patients may be explained by the specific drug regimen. We extracted summary statistics regarding CHD and stroke from 28 outcome trials that compared either ACEIs or CCBs with diuretics, beta-blockers, or placebo for a total of 179,122 patients, 9509 incident cases of CHD, and 5971 ...

      Compliance and distensibility are wall properties of large arteries, which may play a role in cardiovascular disease. The purpose of this study was to investigate whether the influence of age on these vessel wall properties differs between vascular territories and is gender-dependent. In a population sample of 498 men and women 20 to 79 years of age, diameter, distensibility, and compliance coefficient of the muscular brachial artery were measured with an echo-tracking device. ...

      CONTEXT: Extrapolations from observational studies and short-term intervention trials suggest that population-wide moderation of salt intake might reduce cardiovascular events.

      OBJECTIVE: To assess whether 24-hour urinary sodium excretion predicts blood pressure (BP) and health outcomes.

      DESIGN, SETTING, AND PARTICIPANTS: Prospective population study, involving 3681 participants without cardiovascular disease (CVD) who are members of families that were randomly enrolled in the Flemish ...

      CONTEXT: The clinical use of ambulatory blood pressure (BP) monitoring requires further validation in prospective outcome studies.

      OBJECTIVE: To compare the prognostic significance of conventional and ambulatory BP measurement in older patients with isolated systolic hypertension.

      DESIGN: Substudy to the double-blind placebo-controlled Systolic Hypertension in Europe (Syst-Eur) Trial, started in October 1988 with follow up to February 1999. The conventional BP at randomization was the ...

      BACKGROUND: Current diagnostic thresholds for ambulatory blood pressure (ABP) mainly rely on statistical parameters derived from reference populations. We determined an outcome-driven reference frame for ABP measurement.

      METHODS AND RESULTS: We performed 24-hour ABP monitoring in 5682 participants (mean age 59.0 years; 43.3% women) enrolled in prospective population studies in Copenhagen, Denmark; Noorderkempen, Belgium; Ohasama, Japan; and Uppsala, Sweden. In multivariate analyses, we ...

      BACKGROUND: Isolated systolic hypertension occurs in about 15% of people aged 60 years or older. In 1989, the European Working Party on High Blood Pressure in the Elderly investigated whether active treatment could reduce cardiovascular complications of isolated systolic hypertension. Fatal and non-fatal stroke combined was the primary endpoint.

      METHODS: All patients (> 60 years) were initially started on masked placebo. At three run-in visits 1 month apart, their average sitting ...

      BACKGROUND: Chronic low-level exposure to cadmium may promote calcium loss via urinary excretion. We undertook a prospective population study to investigate whether environmental exposure to cadmium lowers bone density and increases risk of fractures.

      METHODS: We measured urinary cadmium excretion, a biomarker of lifetime exposure, in people from ten districts of Belgium, of which six districts bordered on three zinc smelters. We also measured cadmium in soil and in vegetables from the ...

      BACKGROUND: After the double-blind, placebo-controlled Systolic Hypertension in Europe (Syst-Eur) trial ended in February 1997, randomized patients were offered active study medication for a further period of observation.

      OBJECTIVE: To refine the estimates of the long-term effects of antihypertensive therapy on the incidence of dementia.

      METHODS: Eligible patients had no dementia and were at least 60 years old. Their systolic blood pressure at entry was 160 to 219 mm Hg, with diastolic ...

      KOL-Index: 13805

      BACKGROUND: In a meta-analysis published in October 2001, we reported that new and old classes of antihypertensive drugs had similar long-term efficacy and safety. Furthermore, we observed that in clinical trials in hypertensive or high-risk patients gradients in systolic pressure accounted for most differences in outcome.

      OBJECTIVE: To test whether our previous conclusions would hold, we updated our quantitative overview with new information from 14 clinical trials presented before 1 ...
