Twenty-five-year mortality follow-up the Belgian bank study.
Two cohorts of male bank employees aged 40-59 at baseline and free of coronary heart disease were pooled and followed during 25 years for all-cause and coronary mortality.
The vital status was known for all 1,227 subjects, but in both banks, 8% of all deaths occurred without any clue to a possible cause.
All-cause and coronary mortality were 36.9 and 10.5 per 100 subjects, respectively.
In bivariate analysis (adjusting for age), systolic blood pressure, diastolic blood pressure, serum cholesterol and cigarette smoking predicted all-cause mortality.
The same variables predicted coronary mortality.
Body mass index was neither a predictor of all-cause nor of coronary mortality.
