Association between contrast sensitivity function and structural damage in primary open-angle glaucoma

Full spatial frequency contrast sensitivity impairment, most notably at low spatial frequencies, is a characteristic change in primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG). Contrast sensitivity is a potential functional endpoint for the measurement of glaucoma severity.

Association Between Depression or Anxiety and the Risk of Hepatitis B Flares.

Patients with chronic hepatitis B who also have depression or anxiety may be at a greater risk of hepatitis B flares.

Association between dietary antioxidant index and risk of Helicobacter pylori infection among adults

Appropriate intake of nutrient antioxidants may have a role in decreasing the likelihood of H. pylori infection risk

Association between dietary niacin on retinal nerve fibre layer thickness in healthy eyes of different ages

In healthy eyes, dietary niacin consumption does not appear to be connected with age-related retinal nerve fibre layer thinning. Niacin at supraphysiological doses may be necessary for therapeutic efficacy in the retina.

Association between exercise and risk of cardiovascular diseases in patients with non-cystic fibrosis bronchiectasis

Exercise was associated with a reduced risk of cardiovascular diseases in patients with bronchiectasis.

Association between haemoglobin(Hb) and chronic kidney disease(CKD) progression

There is a negative and non-linear relationship between Hb and renal prognosis and renal function decline in CKD patients. Hb is strongly related to renal prognosis when Hb is above 8.6 g/dL.

Association Between Hemoglobin Glycation Index and Metabolic Syndrome.

Hemoglobin Glycation Index is directly associated with Metabolic Syndrome.

Association between hepatic steatosis and fibrosis with measures of insulin sensitivity in patients with severe obesity and type 2 diabetes

Hepatic steatosis, but not the degree of liver fibrosis, was associated with different measures of insulin sensitivity in patients with severe obesity and T2DM.

Association Between High-Density Lipoprotein Cholesterol (HDL-C) Levels and Adverse Cardiovascular Outcomes in High-risk Populations

Very high HDL-Clevels are linked to a greater mortality risk in patients with coronary artery disease.
