    Article - En anglais

    The changes and determinants of blood pressure were examined in the Dormont High School (Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania) cohort of 86 men and 116 women with mean ages of 17 years during high school (1957-1963), 34 years at follow-up I (1977-1978), and 47 years at current follow-up II (1989-1990).

    Over the 30-year period, the subjects' mean systolic blood pressure change relatively little, whereas the increase in mean diastolic blood pressure was significantly higher in men than in women (p<0.01).
