  1. Precision of blood cholesterol measurement and high blood cholesterol case-finding and treatment.

    Article - En anglais

    Imprecise blood cholesterol measurement can be expected to adversely affect large scale efforts to detect and treat high blood cholesterol.

    Using protocols specified by the National Cholesterol Education Program (NCEP), we used computer simulation techniques to quantify the effects of blood cholesterol measurement variability on misclassification rates, costs, effectiveness, and cost-effectiveness of high blood cholesterol case-finding and treatment.

    At the time of initial case-finding, increased measurement variability was associated with a moderate decrease in the proportions assigned to a treatment state and in the positive predictive value of such an assignment.
