  1. The validity of estimating heart disease reduction from a framingham logistic equation.

    Article - En anglais

    We compared two ways in which a logistic equation could be used to estimate the number of heart disease events prevented after lowering blood cholesterol levels.

    Men were selected from an Australian population survey who met the entry criteria of the Lipid Research Clinics Coronary Primary Prevention Trial (LCR-CPPT).

    The numbers of heart disease events expected over 7.4 years were calculated from the logistic equation after reducing the men's blood cholesterol by the amounts achieved in the LRC-CPPT placebo and treatment groups.

    (our simulated placebo and treatment groups).
