  • Background— The Whitehall cohort studies (I and II) of British civil servants have identified sociodemographic, psychosocial, and biological risk factors for coronary heart disease (CHD). To identify mechanisms responsible for susceptibility to CHD, specific biological markers of stress are increasingly being measured. One marker linked to susceptibility to CHD is heat shock protein (Hsp) 60. Methods and Results— Blood was taken from 229 civil servants (126 men and 103 women) in the Whitehall… CONTINUE READING
