    Type 2 diabetes mellitus accelerates brain aging and cognitive decline: Complementary findings from UK Biobank and meta-analyses

    Botond Antal et al.
    Patients with Type 2 diabetes show patterns of neurodegeneration consistent with accelerated brain aging, including impaired cognition and loss of brain volume, which are more severe in those with increased disease duration.

    Development and evaluation of a machine learning-based in-hospital COVID-19 disease outcome predictor (CODOP): A multicontinental retrospective study

    Riku Klén et al.
    The generalizability of CODOP in distinct world regions and its flexibility to reckon with the changing availability of hospital resources makes it a clinically useful tool potentially improving the outcome prediction and the management of COVID-19 hospitalized patients.

    Migraine monoclonal antibodies against CGRP change brain activity depending on ligand or receptor target – an fMRI study

    Hauke Basedau et al.
    Despite relative impermeability of the blood-brain barrier for calcitonin gene-related peptide antibodies used in migraine treatment, these antibodies induce certain and highly specific brain effects particularly in the hypothalamus which may be part of the mechanism of their efficacy.

    Utility of estimated pulse wave velocity for assessing vascular stiffness: comparison of methods

    Stefan Möstl et al.
    Novel blood pressure devices provide an estimated pulse wave velocity, which is no substitute for measured pulse wave velocity and clinicians should be aware that it only reflects trends derived from representative population samples based on age and blood pressure.
