Risk factors for cardiovascular disease in the developing world. A multicentre collaborative study in the international clinical epidemiology network (INCLEN).
Twelve centres in 7 countries in the Developing World (China, Thailand, the Philippines, Indonesia, Chile, Colombia and Brazil) connected with the International Clinical Epidemiology Network (INCLEN) each measured cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk factors in random samples of approx. 200 men aged between 35 and 65 years.
Samples of men aimed to be representative of the population from which they were drawn, but the population in each centre was not designed to be representative of the whole country.
Cigarette smoking rates varied from 16 to 78% and mean cholesterol levels varied from 3.8 to 6.4 mmol/l.
