Am J Med 126:509-14. 2013..We examined the presence of a nonlinear relationship between 25(OH)D and all-cause and cardiovascular disease mortality among healthy adults...
- Continuous infusion versus intermittent bolus furosemide in ADHF: an updated meta-analysis of randomized control trialsMuhammad Amer
Division of General Internal Medicine Hospitalist Program, Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, Baltimore, MD, USA
J Hosp Med 7:270-5. 2012..We conducted a systemic review and meta-analysis of randomized clinical trials that compared the effects of continuous infusion and intermittent bolus of furosemide in patients hospitalized with ADHF...
- Relation between serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D and C-reactive protein in asymptomatic adults (from the continuous National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey 2001 to 2006)Muhammad Amer
Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, Baltimore, Maryland, USA
Am J Cardiol 109:226-30. 2012..We found that 25(OH)D at a level ≥21 ng/ml is associated with an increase in serum CRP. It is possible that the role of vitamin D supplementation to reduce inflammation is beneficial only among those with a lower serum 25(OH)D...

Department of Medicine, Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, Maryland 21287
J Clin Endocrinol Metab 99:633-8. 2014..Hyperhomocysteinemia is an independent risk factor for premature atherosclerosis and thromboembolism. 25-Hydroxyvitamin D [25(OH)D] may modulate the expression of genes involved in homocysteine metabolism...
- 25-Hydroxyvitamin D and Ankle-Brachial Blood Pressure Index in Adults without Peripheral Artery DiseaseMuhammad Amer
Department of Medicine, Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, Maryland, USA
Clin Transl Sci 7:391-5. 2014..Less is known about the relationship between 25(OH)D and ankle-brachial blood pressure index (ABPI) in asymptomatic adults. We hypothesized a nonlinear relationship between 25(OH)D and ABPI in asymptomatic adults without PAD...
