Serum uric acid as a potential marker for heart failure risk in men on antihypertensive treatment: The British Regional Heart Study
. Int J Cardiol.
The research drew on data from the British Regional Heart Study
, which began in 1978 with nearly 8,000 participants aged 40 to 59 from a couple dozen towns scattered across Britain.
To find out if other patterns of activity might still contribute to lowering the risk of death, the researchers drew on data from the British Regional Heart Study
. The final analysis of the study was based on more than 1,000 men, whose average age was 78.
The new study, published in the British Journal of Sports Medicine, drew on data from the British Regional Heart Study
[25.] British Regional Heart Study
: Risk factor for IHD.
In the British Regional Heart study
(18) by Shah Ebrahim et al the mean common carotid IMT in men was found to be 0.84 [+ or -] 0.21m.m.
The researchers examined the relationship among age of diabetes onset, duration of disease, and cardiovascular risk using data from the British Regional Heart Study
(BRHS), a prospective assessment of cardiovascular disease in 7,735 white men aged 40-59 years at enrollment in 1978-1980 who were recruited from general practices in 24 British towns.
Sattar and colleagues (12) reported on incident cardiovascular disease and diabetes in 4812 non diabetic individuals in the prospective study of pravastatin in the elderly at risk (PROSPER) and 2737 non diabetic men in the British Regional Heart Study
(BRHS) and compared hazard ratios of the cardiovascular disease in those with the metabolic syndrome or its individual components at 3.2 yr follow up (Table).
Sattar and his associates analyzed data from their Prospective Study of Pravastatin in the Elderly at Risk (PROSPER) and corroborated the data in another prospective study, the British Regional Heart Study
The effect of the C677T and A1298C polymorphisms in the methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase gene on homocysteine levels in elderly men and women from the British regional heart study
. Athero-sclerosis 2001;154:659-66.
The researchers used data from the British regional heart study
, which assessed cardiovascular disease in 7,735 middle-aged men first examined in 1978-1980, and found that the relative risk for CHD was 50%-60% higher in those with the highest environmental exposures to smoking.
The research team used survey data on heart disease from participants in the British Regional Heart Study
. This includes almost 8,000 men, aged between 40 and 59 at the study's start in 1978-80.
