  1. Screening with total cholesterol : determining sensitivity and specificity of the national cholesterol education program's guidelines from a population survey.

    Article - En anglais

    The objective of the study was to determine the sensitivity and specificity of the National Cholesterol Education Program (NCEP) guidelines in identifying at-risk individuals for hypercholesterolemia, using population-based data from the Manitoba Heart Health Survey (MHHS).

    The MHHS surveyed a representative sample of adult residents of the province of Manitoba, Canada, aged 18-74 (n=2792), 2212 of whom underwent complete lipoprotein analyses: total cholesterol (TC), high-density (HDL) and low-density (LDL) lipoprotein cholesterol, and triglycerides (TG) after overnight fasting.

    Following NCEP criteria for risk categories, 618 individuals could be considered as « at risk » based on their HDL and/or LDL levels.
