New Web- Based Calculator to Assess Heart Disease Risk

id: "We have known for some time that some ethnic groups are at particularly high risk of cardiovascular disease and that applying the conventional rules to predict their future risk of a heart attack was probably underestimating that risk.

"The Bristol University group have produced a risk assessment tool that adjusts for ethnic origin. This should help doctors to address some of the current inequalities in the provision of preventive medicine to ensure that those at highest risk, regardless of their background, are identified and treated before they develop heart disease."

The data on which the recalibration has been calculated included 3,778 men and 4,544 women, aged 35-54, from the Health Survey for England 1998/99, and the Wandsworth Heart and Stroke Study.
