To examine the natural histories of coronary artery disease and hypertension in cohorts of Black and white men of identical education and occupations.
Prior studies of Black-white differences in hypertension and coronary disease have compared racial groups from markedly different socioeconomic and educational backgrounds. This study represented one of a few, if any, long term prospective studies of cardiovascular disease in middle-class Blacks and whites of similar education and occupation, in whom both youthful and midlife risk factors were assessed.
In this prospective study, the prevalence and incidence of coronary artery disease, hypertension, and other cardiovascular diseases were compared using standardized endpoint criteria. The prevalence of cardiovascular risk factors in midlife were compared between cohorts, and included smoking, diabetes, family history, dietary factors, and lipoprotein cholesterol levels. The youthful predictors of midlife cardiovascular risk factors were determined using baseline data collected by identical protocols in the two cohorts between 1957 and 1965. The youthful risk factors were related to the incidence of disease in midlife in two cohorts to identify differences in significance, independence, and relative importance of risk factors in Blacks versus whites.

Pathological conditions involving the CARDIOVASCULAR SYSTEM including the HEART; the BLOOD VESSELS; or the PERICARDIUM.
Methods and procedures for the diagnosis of diseases or dysfunction of the cardiovascular system or its organs or demonstration of their physiological processes.
Diseases of long duration and generally slow progression. The four main types of noncommunicable diseases are CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASES (e.g., heart attacks and stroke), CANCER, chronic respiratory diseases (e.g., CHRONIC OBSTRUCTIVE PULMONARY DISEASE and ASTHMA) and DIABETES MELLITUS.
Unexpected rapid natural death due to cardiovascular collapse within one hour of initial symptoms. It is usually caused by the worsening of existing heart diseases. The sudden onset of symptoms, such as CHEST PAIN and CARDIAC ARRHYTHMIAS, particularly VENTRICULAR TACHYCARDIA, can lead to the loss of consciousness and cardiac arrest followed by biological death. (from Braunwald's Heart Disease: A Textbook of Cardiovascular Medicine, 7th ed., 2005)
