Many previous investigations, both retrospective and prospective, have demonstrated that patients with coronary heart disease have significantly higher mean serum lipid levels than controls. The present study examines the relationship between the concentration of the serum lipids and survival over a 10-year period.
The coronary group consisted of 120 male patients, age 30 to 80, who had experienced a myocardial infarction and were free of hypertension, diabetes, and other complicating diseases. The serum lipids determined at the initial examination, and annually thereafter, included cholesterol, phospholipids and standard Sf 0-12, 12-20, 20-100 and 100-400. Cumulative survival was calculated by the life
