    <p><b>Aim: </b>Irisin, an exercise-induced myokine, is a potential neurotrophic factor; however, its relationship with cerebral small vessel disease (CSVD) remains unknown. Therefore, we investigated whether serum irisin levels are associated with CSVD in healthy Japanese men.<b> </b></p><p><b>Methods: </b>We analyzed data from 720 men free of stroke and participated in this observational study. Serum irisin levels were measured by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay. CSVD was assessed on deep and subcortical white matter hyperintensities (DSWMHs), periventricular hyperintensities (PVHs), lacunar infarcts (LIs), and cerebral microbleeds (CMBs) on brain magnetic resonance imaging. We calculated the total CSVD score (ranges 0–4) to express the total CSVD burden. We computed the adjusted odds ratios (ORs), with 95% confidence intervals (CIs), of the total CSVD score and individual CSVD features using logistic regression models according to the quartiles of irisin (reference: Q1).<b> </b></p><p><b>Results: </b>Serum irisin levels were associated with lower ORs of higher (vs. zero or lower score) total CSVD score, with the lowest risk (OR, 0.63; 95% CI, 0.41–0.97) being observed in Q3 compared to Q1 after adjustment of potential covariates. Similar results were obtained for younger adults (<65 years). Among individual CSVD features, irisin was associated with a reduced risk of LIs in the total sample and PVHs, LIs, and CMBs in younger adults. No relationship was observed in older adults (≥ 65 years).<b> </b></p><p><b>Conclusions: </b>Serum irisin levels were associated with less burden of total CSVD in healthy Japanese men. Serum irisin levels were also related with a reduced risk of PVHs, LIs, and CMBs, but not DSWMHs.</p>

    AIM: To identify the most differentiated serum lipids, especially concerning particle size and fractions, between Japanese living in Japan and Japanese-Americans in Hawaii, in the absence of possible genetic confounders, and cross-sectionally examine the associated modifiable lifestyle factors. METHODS: Overall, 1,241 (aged 40-59 years) Japanese living in Japan and Japanese-Americans in Hawaii were included. We quantified 130 serum lipid profiles (VLDL 1-5, IDL, LDL 1-6, high-density lipoprotein [HDL] 1-4, and their subfractions) using Bruker's 1 H-nuclear magnetic resonance spectrometer for the primary outcome. Modifiable lifestyle factors included body mass index (BMI), physical activity, alcohol and smoking habits, and 70 nutrient parameters. We evaluated the different lipids between the groups using partial least squares-discriminant analysis and association between extracted lipids and lifestyle factors using multivariable linear regression analysis. RESULTS: Concentrations of HDL4, HDL with the smallest particle size, were lower in Japanese than in Japanese-Americans of both sexes. Higher fish-derived omega-3 fatty acid intake and lower alcohol intake were associated with lower HDL4 concentrations. A 1% higher kcal intake of total omega-3 fatty acids was associated with a 9.8- mg/dL lower HDL4. Fish-derived docosapentaenoic acid, eicosapentaenoic acid, and docosahexaenoic acid intake were inversely associated with HDL4 concentration. There was no relationship between country, sex, age, or BMI. CONCLUSIONS: Japanese and Japanese-Americans can be differentiated based on HDL4 concentration. High fish intake among the Japanese may contribute to their lower HDL4 concentration. Thus, HDL particle size may be an important clinical marker for coronary artery diseases or a fish consumption biomarker.

    AIMS: To examine the association between diabetes and prediabetes at baseline and disability, mortality over a 22-year period among middle-aged adult Japanese. METHODS: Participants consisted of 1,788 adults aged 45 to 64 years at baseline from the cohort study NIPPON DATA90. Disability, defined as having decline in ADL, was assessed by a modified Katz questionnaire at four time points. Disability and death without disability for 22-year follow-up were used as outcomes to test the association with a diagnosis of diabetes or prediabetes at baseline, using multinomial logistic regression. Adjusted odd ratios were obtained from four models that contained appropriate adjustment factors such as age, sex, smoking status, drinking status, body mass index, and cardiovascular risk factors (hypertension, hypercholesterolemia, triglycerides, low serum high-density lipoprotein) at baseline. RESULTS: In the present study, 334 (18.7%) reported at least one disability, and 350 (19.6%) were reported dead without observation of disability during follow-up. Adjusting sex and other risk factors, participants with diabetes and prediabetes had higher risk for disability (OR = 1.43, 95%CI=1.07-1.91 and OR = 1.66, 95%CI=1.10-2.50, respectively) and for mortality (OR = 1.56, 95%CI=1.16-2.08 and OR = 1.77, 95%CI=1.18-2.65, respectively) than individuals with normal glucose tolerance. CONCLUSIONS: In middle-aged Japanese, individuals with diabetes and prediabetes were more likely to be associated with disability and mortality. Our findings suggest that prediabetes and diabetes in middle-aged adults should be paid more attention and requires more intervention to prevent disability and mortality in later life.

     View Summary

    AIMS: High-sensitivity C-reactive protein (hsCRP) associates with atherosclerotic diseases such as stroke. However, previous results on the association between hsCRP levels and functional disability were controversial. METHODS: We analyzed 2,610 men and women who did not exhibit functional disability or death within the first 3 years of the baseline survey and those aged 65 years or older at the end of follow-up. The levels of hsCRP were assessed using latex agglutination assay at baseline survey from 2006 to 2014. Functional disability was followed up using the long-term care insurance (LTCI) program until November 1, 2019. Functional disability was defined as a new LTCI program certification. Cox proportional hazards model with competing risk analysis for death was used to evaluate the association between hsCRP levels and future functional disability. RESULTS: During a 9-year follow-up period, we observed 328 cases of functional disability and 67 deaths without prior functional disability incidence. The multivariable-adjusted hazard ratio (HR, 95% confidence interval [CI]) of functional disability in log-transferred hsCRP levels was 1.43 (1.22-1.67) in men and 0.97 (0.81-1.15) in women. When hsCRP level was analyzed as a categorical variable, low hsCRP levels (<1.0 mg/l) as the reference, the multivariable-adjusted HR (95% CI) of functional disability in high hsCRP levels (≥ 3.0 mg/l) was 2.37 (1.56-3.62). Similar results were observed when stratified by sex, but it was not significant in women. CONCLUSIONS: This study demonstrates that low-grade systemic inflammation to assess hsCRP might predict the future incidence of functional disability, especially in men.

     View Summary

    This study aimed to identify related factors for low cognitive function in two groups of genetically similar Japanese men exposed to Westernized lifestyles from different starting points in life using cross-sectional data from Japanese-American based in Hawaii and the Japanese based in Japan. Cognitive function was evaluated by participants’ performance on the Cognitive Abilities Screening Instrument (CASI), a validated comprehensive measure of global cognitive function developed for use in cross-cultural and cross-national studies. Older Hawaii-based men were more likely to achieve a low CASI score than were older Japan-based men. In the present study, lower cognitive function among older Japanese men was mostly explained by the differences in educational attainment between the cohorts.

     View Summary

    The aim of the present analysis is to investigate the association between gut microbiota and coronary artery calcification (CAC) in general Japanese men. Shiga Epidemiological Study of Subclinical Atherosclerosis (SESSA) is a prospective cohort study of randomly selected men from a general Japanese population. This analysis included 669 participants who completed a follow-up examination including analysis of gut microbiota. After adjustment for age, BMI, total cholesterol, HDL cholesterol, HbA1c, smoking, alcohol intake, regular exercise, and use of medication to treat hypertension, dyslipidemia or diabetes, frequency of Lactobacillus was associated with lower risks of coronary artery calcification (odd ratio 0.84 per 1SD [9%] increase, 95%CI 0.70-1.00) while there were no clear relationships for Bifidobacterium, Bacteroides, Prevotella or Clostridium. Lactobacillus appears to be associated with lower prevalence of CAC in a general population of Japanese men.
