Abstract

An evaluation of the predictive accuracy of the new pooled Cohort Risk Equation in > 300,000 subjects without heart disease or diabetes and a low-density lipoprotein cholesterol level between 70-189 mg/dL followed for five years showed that the new equation markedly overestimated the observed risk of cardiovascular events.
