What's in a name?
Why @WHO's formal name for the new #coronavirus #disease matters:

1. Wash your hands often and/or use hand sanitizer more frequently.

2. Try not to touch your face... 🙈

3. Cough into your shirt or arm.

4. Stay home when you are sick.

5. WASH. YOUR. HANDS!

This is a pretty cool and elegant study: Monogenic vs Polygenic Hypercholesterolemia and Atherosclerotic #Cardiovascular Disease Risk ja.ma/2UYCZ4G

A brief 🧵 (1/11)
Key point was to compare the risk between three groups:

1️⃣ LDL high because of a pathogenic single-gene variant
2️⃣ LDL high because of a particularly strong effect from a combination of variants in 223 genes
3️⃣ LDL high but neither of the above genetic effects

(2/n)
In other words the comparison is between:

1️⃣ One physiological LDL pathway malfunctioning
2️⃣ Some combination of multiple pathways producing high LDL
3️⃣ LDL high mainly due to non-genetic effects (most likely diet, exercise, the usual)

(3/n)

#Tweetorial time! 🚨 Looks like there’s another misconception about #cholesterol and #atherosclerosis making rounds again. This one has to do with the process of #LDL particles entering the arterial wall. So gather round friends and let me science the s*it out of this 🤓 (1/24)
For background, here’s a widely cited series of figures by Nakashima et al. (2007). They performed autopsies on 38 people aged 7-49, who died of non-#cardiovascular causes (2/24)
ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/17303781
Nakashima et al. looked for atherosclerotic lesions at different stages, according to a previously published morphological classification scheme. They found them, took slices, stained them to find #lipids and #macrophages and organized them nicely (3/24)

Holobiont activity in chronic disease 👉In this analysis of #cardiovascular-disease-related proteins in human blood☝️genetics contributed most to immune-related proteins, while #microbiome contributed most to proteins tied to metabolism + intestinal health:nature.com/articles/s4158…
Worth noting that the team largely assumed that the proteins identified in #blood were derived from the gut microbiome 👉 but some #proteins could have been derived from organisms in the blood itself and/or organisms persisting in #microbiome communities outside the gut
Overall takeaway 👉 “This study provides important evidence for a joint genetic and microbial effect in #cardiovascular disease and provides directions for future applications in personalized medicine”

OK #hospmed19, I had told myself I wasn't going to make another #tweetorial until next week to give myself a break, but I can't help but be motivated by all the amazing #tweeps at this meeting. Long story short, here's a #medthread on #PSORIASIS!

#MedEd #FOAMed PC:@dermnetnz

More and more, we are recognizing psoriasis to be a systemic disease. Aside from the psoriatic #arthritis we all know and love, there is more convincing evidence that psoriasis is linked with #cardiovascular disease and risk. As such, #multidisciplinary care is important!

There are many different variants of psoriasis. The most classic is plaque psoriasis, described commonly as "salmon colored plaques with micaceous scale."

Q: Ever notice how psoriasis doesn't really get impetiginized/superinfected but eczema does? Why do you think that is?
