Use was made of 9-year follow-up data from the Chicago Heart Association Detection Project in Industry for 11,220 white men and 8,030 white women aged 35-64 years at entry(More)
The relation of post-load plasma glucose to 12-year cancer mortality was studied in 11,521 white men and 8,591 white women aged 35-64 years at entry in the Chicago Heart Association Detection Project in Industry. There were 298 deaths in which cancer was the underlying cause in men and 186 such deaths in women. Plasma glucose levels at baseline measured one(More)

SETTING Four hypertension screening and treatment centers in the United States. PARTICIPANTS Hypertensive men and women, aged 45 to 69 years, with diastolic blood pressure less than 100 mm(More)
The Systolic Hypertension in the Elderly Program (SHEP) is a randomized, blinded test of the efficacy of antihypertensive drug treatment. In a large feasibility trial, 551 men and women who had isolated systolic hypertension and were at least 60 years old received chlorthalidone (25 to 50 mg/day) or matching placebo as the step I drug. After 1 year, 83% of(More)
The associations between heart rate and death from the cardiovascular diseases (CVD), coronary heart disease (CHD) and sudden death from CHD, along with death from all causes and non-cardiovascular causes, are examined for three groups of middle-aged white males: 1233 men aged 40-59 years followed for 15 years from the Chicago Peoples Gas Company study;(More)
A double-blind, positively controlled, forced dose titration study comparing the efficacy and safety of atenolol, captopril, and verapamil sustained release as single agents in the treatment of black patients with mild to moderate hypertension (diastolic blood pressure, 95 to 114 mm Hg) was conducted. A total of 394 patients were randomized to one of the(More)
The independent contributions of ST segment depression and/or T wave abnormality (ST-T abnormalities) on the baseline resting electrocardiogram to risk of 11.5 year coronary heart disease (CHD) mortality were explored among 9203 white men and 7818 white women who were 40 to 64 years old and without definite CHD at entry in the Chicago Heart Association(More)
The relationship between heart rate and cancer mortality was examined in 3 Chicago epidemiologic studies: 1233 white men originally age 40-59 followed 18 years from the Chicago Peoples Gas Company study; 1899 white men originally age 40-55 followed 17 years from the Chicago Western Electric Company study; 5784 white men originally age 45-64 followed 5 years(More)
SUMMARY The relationship of education to risk factors at baseline and to long-term mortality from coronary heart disease (CHD), cardiovascular diseases (CVD), and all causes was analyzed for three cohorts of middle-aged employed white men in Chicago: 8047 from the Chicago Heart Association Detec-Each man was classified into one of four groups: not a high(More)
