      Aims: Clinical differences between women and men have been described in heart failure (HF). However, less is known about the underlying pathophysiological mechanisms. In this study, we compared multiple circulating biomarkers ...
    • Impact of mitral regurgitation in patients with worsening heart failure: insights from BIOSTAT-CHF

      Aims Few data regarding the prevalence and prognostic impact of mitral regurgitation (MR) in patients with worsening chronic or new-onset acute heart failure (HF) are available. We investigated the role of MR in the BIOlogy ...
    • Impaired high-density lipoprotein function in patients with heart failure 

      Emmens, Johanna E.; Jia, Congzhuo; Ng, Leong L.; van Veldhuisen, Dirk J.; Dickstein, Kenneth; Anker, Stefan D.; Lang, Chim C.; Filippatos, Gerasimos; Cleland, John G.; Metra, Marco; Voors, Adriaan A.; de Boer, Rudolf A.; Tietge, Uwe J. F. (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2021)
      Background We recently showed that, in patients with heart failure, lower high‐density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol concentration was a strong predictor of death or hospitalization for heart failure. In a follow‐up study, ...
    • Neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio and outcomes in patients with new-onset or worsening heart failure with reduced and preserved ejection fraction
