The Serbian cohorts of the Seven Countries Study were examined four times during a 25-year period.
Large changes were observed in average serum cholesterol, blood pressure and the prevalence of smoking in these ageing cohorts.
Comparison of men of the same age strata e.g. men aged 50-59 examined at baseline and after 10 years of follow-up and of men aged 65-69 examined after 10 and 25 years of follow-up showed that serum cholesterol increased by about 45% in Zrenjanin, 35% in Velika Krsna and 15% in Belgrade over the last 25 years.
Systolic blood pressure increased by 9% in Zrenjanin and 7% in Velika Krsna.
No significant increase in systolic blood pressure was observed in Belgrade.
