Trends in the incidence of myocardial infarction and associated mortality and morbidity in a large employed population 1957 1983

, : Trends in the incidence of myocardial infarction and associated mortality and morbidity in a large employed population 1957 1983. New England Journal of Medicine 312(16): 1005-1011

Long-term trends in the incidence of a first acute myocardial infarction and in case-fatality rates were analyzed among employees of the Du Pont Company [USA] from 1957-1983. A steady decline in incidence was observed among male employees. The annual age-adjusted rate in the 1957-1959 period was 3.19/1000, as compared with 2.29/1000 in the 1981-1983 period, a decline of 28.2%. The rate of decline was higher among salaried (white-collar) employees than among production workers receiving hourly wages. No trend was seen among female employees, but the number of cases may have been too small to detect a decline. Beginning in 1969, the 24 h case-fatality rate showed a moderate decline, but afer 1975, there was a sharp drop in the 30 day case fatality rate among persons who survived 24 h after the attack. These declines did not begin until several years after the decline in incidence had begun. Improved medical care probably made some contribution to the decline in mortality associated with coronary heart disease, but the major source of the decline was a reduction in the incidence of the disease.

Haptoglobin (Hp) possesses many functions in the immune system and angiogenesis as well as scavenging released hemoglobin, and thus it is speculated that Hp may also play a critical role in the reproductive process. To investigate the possible inv...
