It is evident that research in various aspects of coronary heart disease has increased tremendously during the past 25 years and that studies have been directed toward many different aspects of this condition. It is also true that, although our information has increased considerably from the time of Heberden and Osler, many of the same fundamental questions which faced these investigators have not as yet been answered. The problem is so vast and so important that it is necessary for those working in the field to be aware of the limitations of each of the methods of study being used at the present time. In reporting the results of such studies, it will be helpful to state clearly exactly which aspects of the disease complex are under study and where such results fit into the complete picture.
