  1. A comparison of the effects of cholesterol on CHD mortality in black and white women : twenty-eight years of follow-up in the Charleston heart study.

    Article - En anglais

    The relationship between cholesterol and 28-year CHD mortality in women was evaluated in the Charleston Heart Study.

    Linear, quadratic, and cubic models were investigated using Cox proportional hazards regression analysis.

    In white women, the linear, quadratic, and cubic terms for cholesterol were significant suggesting an asymmetric J-shaped relationship.

    In black women, only the linear term in all three models was statistically significant suggesting an increasing CHD mortality rate with increasing cholesterol level.
