Reproducibility and validity of a semiquantitative food frequency questionnaire.
The aim of this study was to evaluate the reproducibility and validity of a 61-item semiquantitative food frequency questionnaire used in a large prospective study among women. This form wasExpand
C-reactive protein and other markers of inflammation in the prediction of cardiovascular disease in women.
BACKGROUND Since inflammation is believed to have a role in the pathogenesis of cardiovascular events, measurement of markers of inflammation has been proposed as a method to improve the predictionExpand
Inflammation, aspirin, and the risk of cardiovascular disease in apparently healthy men.
BACKGROUND Inflammation may be important in the pathogenesis of atherothrombosis. We studied whether inflammation increases the risk of a first thrombotic event and whether treatment with aspirinExpand
Plasma concentration of interleukin-6 and the risk of future myocardial infarction among apparently healthy men.
BACKGROUND Interleukin-6 (IL-6) plays a central role in inflammation and tissue injury. However, epidemiological data evaluating the role of IL-6 in atherogenesis are sparse. METHODS AND RESULTS InExpand
A prospective study of dietary glycemic load, carbohydrate intake, and risk of coronary heart disease in US women.
BACKGROUND Little is known about the effects of the amount and type of carbohydrates on risk of coronary heart disease (CHD). OBJECTIVE The objective of this study was to prospectively evaluate theExpand
Lack of effect of long-term supplementation with beta carotene on the incidence of malignant neoplasms and cardiovascular disease.
BACKGROUND Observational studies suggest that people who consume more fruits and vegetables containing beta carotene have somewhat lower risks of cancer and cardiovascular disease, and earlier basicExpand
Cholesteryl Ester Transfer Protein: A Novel Target for Raising HDL and Inhibiting Atherosclerosis
Abstract—Cholesteryl ester transfer protein (CETP) promotes the transfer of cholesteryl esters from antiatherogenic HDLs to proatherogenic apolipoprotein B (apoB)–containing lipoproteins, includingExpand
Low-density lipoprotein subclass patterns and risk of myocardial infarction.
The association of low-density lipoprotein (LDL) subclass patterns with coronary heart disease was investigated in a case-control study of nonfatal myocardial infarction. Subclasses of LDL wereExpand
A prospective study of plasma homocyst(e)ine and risk of myocardial infarction in US physicians.
OBJECTIVE To assess prospectively the risk of coronary heart disease associated with elevated plasma levels of homocyst(e)ine. DESIGN Nested case-control study using prospectively collected bloodExpand
