Although the study of coronary heart disease has provided a fruitful area of research for the psychosocial risk factors for disease, the amount of information among women is limited. Many of the psychological concepts tested in women have been developed from studies of men. The assumption that these psychological constructs (such as type A behavior) are(More)
Carried out a study on a sample of male smokers (N = 182) who were at high risk of coronary heart disease (CHD) in order to determine the variables that discriminated between successful and nonsuccessful quitters in a group intervention program designed to lower CHD risk factors. The analysis revealed that baseline level of smoking, life events, personal(More)
Endothelin is a potent vasoactive peptide. More recently, endothelin-1 (ET-1) has been found in neural tissues such as spinal cord, brain and peripheral ganglion cells. Inagaki (Gastroenterology 101 (1991) 47) reported evidence of ET-1-like immunoreactivity in enteric neurons, but there are no reports of ET-1 peptide or mRNA expression specifically in(More)
Predicting change in coronary heart disease (CHD) risk factors (cigarette smoking, hypertension, and cholesterol) was undertaken in participants randomized to the treatment group of the Harvard Center of the Multiple Risk Factor Intervention Trial. The predictor variables of interest were psychosocial characteristics, responses to the initial group sessions(More)
A group of 182 smokers in a CHD risk factor intervention program were prospectively followed for 4 years to note the relationship of selected psychosocial factors to long-term outcomes in smoking cessation. The results of the study suggest that the combined effects of high levels of presumed stress and low self-reliance (measured by a multimode method) have(More)
Carried out a study on a sample of men (N = 652) at high risk or coronary heart disease (CHD) in order to note the dimensions of change for the risk factors of smoking, blood pressure, cholesterol, selected intervention and psychosocial variables. The principal components analyses revealed a multi-dimensional structure with some bipolar change factors.(More)
