Cardiovascular disease recurrence and long-term mortality in a tri-ethnic British cohortCardiovascular disease recurrence and long-term mortality in a tri-ethnic British cohort journal paper
This research paper, by Dr Manav Vyas, a UCL Marmot Prince Mahidol Fellow interested in studying social inequalities in neurological and cardiovascular health, particularly focusing on immigrant ethnic communities, is published at the British Medical Journal.
The 2016 European guidelines and the 2019 American College of Cardiology/American Heart Association guidelines on cardiovascular disease prevention acknowledge ethnic differences in cardiovascular disease and recommend strategic efforts to reduce these differences
The paper focuses on ethnic differences in cardiovascular disease incidence. Researchers characterised long-term risk of major adverse cardiovascular event (MACE) and mortality following a non-fatal cardiovascular event in a British cohort of South Asians, African Caribbeans and Europeans'.
