dc.description.abstract This update of the Bowling Green Study (BGS) of the primary and secondary prevention of atherosclerotic disease (ASD) presents additional information to expand the previously published database. Research methodology has not changed. The expanded database now includes the risk factor data for all BGS patients known to have developed some form of clinical ASD from 4 November 1974 to 1 January 1994. The expanded ASD patient database contains data for 267 male and 248 female patients. Plotting the systolic blood pressure (SBP) versus the cholesterol retention fraction (CRF or [LDL-HDL]/LDL, where LDL is low-density lipoprotein cholesterol and HDL is high-density lipoprotein cholesterol) for all ASD patients for whom this information is known revealed that plots for 82% of male and 75% of female patients lie above the ASD threshold line. If only ASD patients less than 80 years of age are considered, then plots for 85% of male and 78% of female ASD patients lie above the ASD threshold line. en_US
