Coronary artery events in Thai patients with psoriasis using Framingham and Ramathibodi–Electricity Generating Authority of Thailand risk scores

Coronary artery disease (CAD) has become an important cause of death and comorbid disease among the general population. Several assessment tools have been developed to predict the 10-year risk of developing CAD and coronary death. The Framingham Risk Score (FRS), which was developed in 1998, is probably the most well-known [ 1 ]. The FRS is validated in the U.S. population and performs well when applied to other populations with a similarly high background risk of CAD. However, application of the FRS overestimated the risk of CAD in cohorts in Europe, Asia, and

A possible alternative to multivariate models for cardiovascular risk estimates

The sex-specific estimation of 10-year cardiovascular risk in individuals without cardiovascular diseases (CVD) has commonly used the Framingham Risk Score (FRS), which was developed from a large, population-based prospective cohort in the US representing mainly the white population of European ancestry [ 1 , 2 ]. Other multivariate risk models, including a risk calculator released by the Joint British Societies (JBS) in 2014 [ 3 ], and later versions of Framingham risk model have been developed to predict coronary heart disease (CHD), cerebrovascular disease

Comparison of exercise treadmill test, flow mediated dilatation, and inflammation in individuals with low risk of adverse cardiovascular events

intercellular adhesion molecule 1 are related in healthy subjects, and pointed out the risk of coronary heart disease [ 34 ]. Yeboah et al. showed that brachial FMD is a predictor of incident CV events in population-based adults, and that it improved the classification of individuals as low, intermediate, and high CVD risk compared with the Framingham Risk Score [ 35 ]. The contributions of biochemical endothelial markers to endothelium derived dilatation are difficult to define because their importance may vary lots of confounders. Determining endothelial function by
