ABSTRACT
The article addresses the question how the recalibration of the Framingham functions compares with the performance of the functions derived from the Chinese Multi-provincial Cohort Study [CMCS] for determining the absolute risk for coronary heart disease (CHD) in patients without CHD. The article adds that in patients without coronary heart disease (CHD), the original Framingham functions overestimated the absolute risk for CHD for CMCS patients. The recalibration of the Framingham functions to reflect the lower incidence of CHD in the Chinese population improved CHD risk estimates.
