Description
Total and lipoprotein cholesterol levels continue to be predictors of coronary heart disease risk in men and women over 65 years old. Cholesterol-lowering trials, however, while sometimes including such subjects, have not concentrated on this age group. The Cholesterol Reduction in Seniors Program was a five-center pilot study to assess feasibility of recruitment and efficacy of cholesterol lowering in this age group.
