    Article - En anglais


    North and South Carolina are the states with the highest coronary death rates and also belong to the « Stroke Belt » of the US.

    From a Reflotron cholesterol screening in North and South Carolina schools, students with cholesterol levels >=4.66 mmol/l (>=180 mg/dl) were tested for high density lipoprotein (HDL), low density lipoprotein (LDL) and lipoprotein(a) (Lp(a)). Methods: The 923 students aged 12-19 with mild hypercholesterolaemia represented one-third of the high school population, of whom 30% are black.

    Of the hypercholesterolaemic white students, 96% took the additional tests, of the hypercholesterolaemic black students, 88% responded.

    Lp(a) levels were determined by electroimmunodiffusion.
