Here are five cardiology studies and findings Becker's has reported since Oct. 5:

  1. A review paper found several common heart medications have potential drug-drug interactions with Paxlovid, an antiviral commonly prescribed to patients with mild or moderate COVID-19.
  2. Minnesota reports the lowest heart disease deaths among middle aged adults at 71.5 deaths per 100,000. Here are the five states with the highest and lowest heart disease deaths.
  3. Cleveland Clinic researchers found metformin, a common diabetes medication, could treat atrial fibrillation.
  4. Harvard researchers found particle radioactivity may be a cause of pollution-associated heart attacks and strokes.
  5. Researchers at Ann Arbor-based University of Michigan found heart risk factors such as age and smoking frequency are more likely to increase chances of death from COVID-19 than heart disease itself.
