By S. Heyden (auth.), Professor Dr. med. Ulrich Abshagen (eds.)

When i used to be requested a few years in the past through the editors of the guide of Experimental Pharmacology to edit a brand new quantity on Antianginal medicines, I agreed at the that, according to my clinical history, basic emphasis take delivery of to scientific pharmacology and therapeutics. It quickly grew to become out that, because of speedy advancements during this box, not anything of the former quantity on Antianginal medicinal drugs via Charlier (Vol. 31, 1971) might be retained except its uncomplicated suggestion of devoting huge area to method. because editors needs to function inside sure limits, I needed to abstain from facing acute myocardial infarction intimately regardless of the well known overlap among volatile angina, the preinfarction syndrome, and acute myocardial infarction. It was once simply attainable for acute myocardial infarction and the idea that of aid of infarct dimension to be in brief mentioned in the bankruptcy on pathophysiology of acute coronary insufficiency. The bankruptcy on invasive equipment supplied a chance to the touch on new methods to early intervention in acute myocardial infarction. right here, intracoronary streptokinase remedy and PTCA are thought of, back with realization to the overlap among mechanical and pharmacological interventions.

This therapy is particularly beneficial to patients who have a high CHD risk due to other risk factors or who have a positive family history of myocardial infarction. In the meantime, a second article on the WHO study was published on 23 August 1980 (COMMITTEE OF PRINCIPAL INVESTIGATORS 1980). Since certain interpreters of this study have made ex- Epidemiology ofIschemic Heart Disease 33 cerpts out of context, it seems appropriate to quote the original authors of the clofibrate study directly, especially because they obviously found it difficult to explain differences in the mortality rates of the three treatment groups.

2. Nor is there any evidence of tissue specificity either in malignant or non-malignant causes of death (this is also true for liver, gall bladder, and intestines). 3. The excess mortality in the Clofibrate-treated group is spread in small numbers over a remarkable range of ordinary everyday causes. 4. Such general effects on mortality are exceedingly rare and call to mind aging or low social class. 5. The evidence of adverse effects is thus entirely "statistical" and without "biological" corroboration.

The bifactorial 5-year intervention study from Oslo (HJERMANN et al. 1981) not only confirmed the 47% lower frequency of both heart attacks and sudden death in the diet group, but also took cancer mortality into consideration. The total death rate was 26 per thousand in the diet intervention and 38 per thousand in the control group, cancer death rates were 8 per thousand and 13 per thousand, respectively. Again, unequivocally, cancer was not increased in men placed on a diet with polyunsaturated and saturated fat in the ratio of 1 : 1 - if anything, cancers occurred less frequently among dieters.
