HIJ-PROPER trial -- Intensive cholesterol-lowering treatment: No significantly better outcomes
Survival and other cardiovascular outcomes were not significantly reduced with intensive treatment using a second-line cholesterol-lowering medication on top of a standard statin, compared to statin treatment alone in patients with acute coronary syndrome and dyslipidemia, investigators reported here.

New research finds female mosquitoes can transmit Zika virus to their eggs and offspring
As the recent Miami outbreak of Zika virus, transmitted by the bite of female Aedes aegypti mosquitoes, prompts an all-out war on the pest, new research reveals that female mosquitoes can pass the virus on to their eggs and offspring, bolstering the need for larvicide use as an integral part of the effort to stop the spread of the virus.

Infused stem cells in heart failure: Improved health status but not cardiac function
A single dose of mesenchymal stem cells delivered intravenously to patients with chronic non-ischemic cardiomyopathy was not associated with significant cardiac structural or functional improvements, but did result in several clinically relevant benefits, according to results from a phase II-a randomized trial.

CHART-1: Largest cardiac regenerative therapy trial brings new insights
A therapy that uses bone-marrow stem cells to promote heart repair did not significantly improve the primary outcome over a sham procedure among patients with congestive heart failure. However, it revealed critical new insights, according to investigators of the CHART-1 trial.

DANISH: No overall survival benefit with ICDs in non-ischemic heart failure
Placement of an implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD) in patients with non-ischemic systolic heart failure did not improve overall survival compared to usual clinical care -- although a secondary outcome, risk of sudden cardiac death, was halved with ICD placement, according to new research reported here.

Sudden death in hypertrophic cardiomyopathy rarely associated with exercise
Sudden death in patients with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) is rarely associated with exercise, according to research presented at ESC Congress 2016 today by Dr. Gherardo Finocchiaro, a cardiologist at St George's University of London, UK. Nearly 80 percent of patients in the study had no symptoms and only one in five had been diagnosed with HCM before their death.

Defibrillators could save many more lives if associated with basic life support education
Automatic external defibrillators fail to save lives when the public does not have basic life support education, according to research presented today at ESC Congress 2016. The study found that public access defibrillation programs are unevenly deployed across France, with an obvious impact on out-of-hospital cardiac arrest survival rate.

Low socioeconomic status is associated with a higher risk of a second heart attack or stroke, according to research presented at ESC Congress 2016 today. The study in nearly 30,000 patients with a prior heart attack found that the risk of a second event was 36 percent lower for those in the highest income quintile compared to the lowest and increased by 14 percent in divorced compared to married patients.

Moderate physical activity linked with 50 percent reduction in cardiovascular death in over-65s
Moderate physical activity is associated with a greater than 50 percent reduction in cardiovascular death in over-65s, according to research presented at ESC Congress 2016 today. The 12-year study in nearly 2,500 adults aged 65 to 74 years found that moderate physical activity reduced the risk of an acute cardiovascular event by more than 30 percent. High levels of physical activity led to greater risk reductions.
