Paper Abstract

A clinical program designed to evaluate the effects of risk factor reduction on the progression of atherosclerosis was initiated at the University of Southern California in 1971. Since atherosclerosis is, at least partially, reversible in the experimental animal(1,2,3), it is possible, although not proven, that regression may occur in man. Classical epidemiologic studies characterize only progression of the disease, since end-points are appearance of end-organ damage or death. Development of a method for the measurement of atherosclerosis in the living individual is essential in a human regression study. The method would have to: 1. Be reproducible 2. Detect early non-obstructive lesions. 3. Be amenable to automated grading methodology.
