CONTEXT Despite improved understanding of atherothrombosis, cardiovascular prediction algorithms for women have largely relied on traditional risk factors. OBJECTIVE To develop and validate cardiovascular risk algorithms for women based on a large panel of traditional and novel risk factors. DESIGN, SETTING, AND PARTICIPANTS Thirty-five factors were assessed among 24 558 initially healthy US women 45 years or older who were followed up for a median of 10.2 years (through March 2004) for… CONTINUE READING
