Flu increases the risk of heart attack

Flu increases the risk of heart attack | Salud Publica | Scoop.it
TORONTO: Influenza is already known to be deadly, but a new study suggests that the risk of heart attack is six times greater than normal while people are ill with the flu.

"I was a little bit surprised by the strength of the association. It's not every day you see a six-fold increase in the risk during the first seven days of lab-confirmed influenza," chief author Dr Jeffrey Kwong told Reuters Health in a telephone interview. "We were also surprised the risk dropped off to nothing by Day 8 and beyond."

He and his Canadian team also found that other respiratory diseases can also increase the chance of a heart attack, but not as nearly as dramatically.

The group, reporting in The New England Journal of Medicine, did not examine whether flu-associated heart attacks are deadlier.

The new study reinforces the importance of the flu vaccine and protective measures such as regular hand washing to guard against influenza and other infections, said Dr Kwong, a scientist at the Institute for Clinical Evaluative Sciences in Toronto.

Doctors have suspected a link between flu and heart attacks since the 1930s but in that era, it was hard to know if the influenza virus or a flu-like illness had made a patient sick prior to the heart attack.

Kwong and his colleagues used confirmed cases of flu, analysing 364 heart attacks from mid-2008 through mid-2015 among Ontario residents age 35 or older who were registered with the province's publicly funded health insurance programme.

The heart attack rate was 20.0 admissions per week during the seven days after diagnosis of the flu, versus 3.3 per week during the 52 weeks before and 51 weeks after that seven-day window.

The risk dropped off dramatically by the eighth day after diagnosis.

Dr Erica Jones, director of the HeartHealth Program at Weill Cornell Medicine and New York-Presbyterian Hospital, who was not connected with the study, said the results aren't surprising based on her experience with hospitalised heart attack patients.

"This time of year, we frequently had people on the floor after the flu," she told Reuters Health by phone. "It was often associated with pneumonia."

The flu "is a stressor to the system. It can increase inflammation. When you get an infection your heart is beating faster. It can activate platelets, increasing the chance that blood clots will form in the arteries that serve the heart. All of these can increase the chance of having a heart attack", Dr Kwong said.

Among the 332 people in the study who developed at least one heart attack while recovering from the flu, 69 per cent had not received a flu shot. For 76 per cent, it was their first heart attack, technically known as an acute myocardial infarction.

The heart attack risk increased slightly for adults over 65 and for people infected with influenza Type B. But those increases were not statistically significant. The risk was 10 times higher with influenza B, five times higher with influenza A (the most common type during that period), 3.5 times greater for respiratory syncytial virus, and nearly three times higher for other viruses.

The study "should not be interpreted as evidence of a lack of vaccine effectiveness because this study was not designed to evaluate the effectiveness of influenza vaccines," the researchers said. 

"Rather, since vaccination of adults is only approximately 40 per cent to 60 per cent effective in preventing laboratory-confirmed influenza infection, this study shows that if vaccinated patients have influenza of sufficient severity to warrant testing, their risk of acute myocardial infarction is increased to a level that is similar to that among unvaccinated patients."

"We can't say it enough - get a flu shot," said Dr Jones. "Even if the flu shot isn't perfect, it may protect at least somewhat and the flu could be less severe, although this study didn't address that. Also, wash your hands all the time and stay away from people who you know are sick."

And if you get the flu, "don't ignore symptoms" that might suggest a heart attack, she said. "Chest pains, shortness of breath might be more than you think."

The time it takes for the flu to produce symptoms is about 1.4 days after infection with influenza A and 0.6 days with influenza B. Once symptoms begin, it only takes a day or two for them to peak.

The researchers cautioned that the people in their study were not suffering from mild flu symptoms.

"These are people who are sick enough to see a doctor and the doctor was worried enough to actually swab the patient" to test for the virus, said Dr Kwong. "We don't know if these results apply to people who have milder infections."

Structure of the herpes simplex virus 1 and 2, viruses that cause cold sores and genital warts

Structure of the herpes simplex virus 1 and 2, viruses that cause cold sores and genital warts | Salud Publica | Scoop.it

The herpesvirus family includes herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1), which causes cold sores, and type 2 (HSV-2), which causes genital herpes. Herpesviruses comprise a large DNA genome enclosed in a large and complex protein cage called a capsid (see the Perspective by Heldwein).

 

Scientists now used electron microscopy to determine a high-resolution structure of the HSV-1 capsid bound to the tegument proteins that occupy the space between the capsid and the nuclear envelope. The structure suggests how these components may play a role in viral transport. Another team of researchers describes a higher-resolution structure of an HSV-2 capsid, providing insight into how the shell assembles and is stabilized.

 

Since Hippocrates first described the cutaneous spreading of herpes simplex lesions, many other diseases—chickenpox, infectious mononucleosis, nasopharyngeal carcinoma, and Kaposi’s sarcoma—have been found to be associated with the nine known human herpesviruses. Among them, herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1, causes cold sores), type 2 (HSV-2, causes genital herpes), and varicella-zoster virus (causes chickenpox and shingles)—which all belong to the α-herpesvirus subfamily—can establish lifelong latent infection within our peripheral nervous system.

 

A prominent feature of these neurotropic viruses is the long-range (up to tens of centimeters) axonal retrograde transport of the DNA-containing viral capsid from nerve endings at sites of infection (such as the lips) to neuronal cell bodies at the ganglia to establish latency or, upon reactivation, anterograde transport of the progeny viral particles from the ganglia to nerve terminals, resulting in reinfection of the dermis. Capsid-associated tegument complexes (CATCs) have been demonstrated to be involved in this cytoskeleton-dependent capsid transport. Because of the large size (~1300 Å) of HSV-1 particles, it has been difficult to obtain atomic structures of the HSV-1 capsid and CATC; consequently, the structural bases underlying α-herpesviruses’ remarkable capability of long-range neuronal transport and many other aspects of its life cycle are poorly understood.

Les VTR sont des indicateurs biologiques qui permettent de qualifier ou quantifier sur une base scientifique un risque pour la santé humaine lié à l’exposition à une substance chimique. Elles sont utiles pour les différents acteurs de la gouvernance des risques : entreprises, expertise publique et autorités chargées de la gestion du risque.
