This lecture on population studies was given in memory and honour of the late Professor Frederick Epstein.
It relates to studies performed in Gbteborg, Sweden.
The main topics discussed in the presentation are : Coronary heart disease and stroke incidence according to the MONICA Project.
Risk factors with special emphasis on relative and population attributable risk.
Incidence and mortality of coronary heart disease in hospital and out of hospital.
Quantitative aspects on treatment and prevention of myocardial infarction.
The analysis was based upon a Myocardial Infarction Register which started in 1970, cross-sectional and prospective population studies primarily among men which started in 1963, cross-sectional studies among men and women based upon population studies (the MONICA Project) as well as studies of myocardial infarction.
We have also been involved in many intervention trials in primary and secondary prevention regarding physical training, bcta-blockers, thrombolytics, aspirin, anti-arrhythmias, ACE-inhibitors and lipid lowering drugs.
In the Primary Prevention Study it was found during a 16 years'follow-up that the coronary heart disease risk was related to entry level of serum cholesterol both among those who had signs of coronary heart disease or angina pectoris, as well as among those with no such previous coronary heart disease events at entry.
For each cholesterol level. (...)
