The association of low levels of HDL cholesterol and arteriographically defined coronary artery disease.

American journal of epidemiology

Pearson TA, Bulkley BH, Achuff SC, Kwiterovich PO, Gordis L.
PMID: 222134
Am J Epidemiol. 1979 Mar;109(3):285-95. doi: 10.1093/oxfordjournals.aje.a112682.

Epidemiologic studies have found associations between low levels of high density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol and increased risk of coronary artery disease, using myocardial infarction or angina pectoris as endpoints. However, since most studies have not correlated HDL cholesterol with...

Prevalence and etiology of idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathy (summary of a National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute workshop.

The American journal of cardiology

Manolio TA, Baughman KL, Rodeheffer R, Pearson TA, Bristow JD, Michels VV, Abelmann WH, Harlan WR.
PMID: 1590237
Am J Cardiol. 1992 Jun 01;69(17):1458-66. doi: 10.1016/0002-9149(92)90901-a.

Idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathy (IDC) is the primary indication for cardiac transplantation, with associated costs of approximately $177 million per year. Recognizing the economic implications of IDC, the increasing incidence, and the limited information on pathogenesis and prognosis, the National...

Plasma dehydroepiandrosterone and dehydroepiandrosterone sulfate in patients undergoing diagnostic coronary angiography.

Journal of the American College of Cardiology

Herrington DM, Gordon GB, Achuff SC, Trejo JF, Weisman HF, Kwiterovich PO, Pearson TA.
PMID: 2146310
J Am Coll Cardiol. 1990 Nov;16(6):862-70. doi: 10.1016/s0735-1097(10)80334-1.
Free Article

Serum levels of DHEA sulfate are inversely associated with cardiovascular death in men, and urinary dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) levels are inversely associated with clinical manifestations of coronary artery disease. These observations may be related to the antiproliferative effects of DHEA,...

The effect of filtered-coffee consumption on plasma lipid levels. Results of a randomized clinical trial.


Fried RE, Levine DM, Kwiterovich PO, Diamond EL, Wilder LB, Moy TF, Pearson TA.
PMID: 1732652
JAMA. 1992 Feb 12;267(6):811-5.

OBJECTIVE: --To determine the effect of filtered-coffee consumption on plasma lipoprotein cholesterol levels in healthy men.DESIGN: --Randomized controlled trial with an 8-week washout period followed by an 8-week intervention period during which men were randomly assigned to drink 720...

Hypercholesterolemia in patients undergoing coronary bypass surgery: are they aware, under treatment, and under control?.

Heart & lung : the journal of critical care

Watt P, Becker DM, Salaita K, Pearson TA.
PMID: 3127357
Heart Lung. 1988 Mar;17(2):205-8.

Hypercholesterolemia is an important determinant of progressive atherosclerosis in both vein grafts and native vessels after coronary artery bypass surgery. We demonstrated that nearly half of all patients admitted for coronary bypass have elevated cholesterol levels before surgery. Of...

Moderate alcohol consumption and coronary artery disease. A review.


Moore RD, Pearson TA.
PMID: 3523113
Medicine (Baltimore). 1986 Jul;65(4):242-67. doi: 10.1097/00005792-198607000-00004.

An inverse association between moderate alcohol consumption and coronary artery disease has been demonstrated in epidemiologic studies of diverse design. These include ecologic correlations, case-control, longitudinal and clinical studies. The consistency, strength and independence of the inverse relationship argues...

Effect of ACTH, alpha-MSH, and beta-Lipotropin on calcium and phosphorus metabolism in the rabbit.


Gildersleeve DL, Pearson TA, Baghdiantz A, Foster GV.
PMID: 173530
Endocrinology. 1975 Dec;97(6):1593-6. doi: 10.1210/endo-97-6-1593.

Studies were undertaken to investigate the effects of synthetic 1-24 adrenocorticotropin (ACTH), bovine alpha melanocyte-stimulating hormone (alpha-MSH), and ovine beta lipotropin (beta-LPH) on plasma calcium and phosphate in rabbits. Equimolar concentrations of these hormones were infused intravenously in intact...

Prevention of coronary heart disease in black adults.

Cardiovascular clinics

Pearson TA, Jenkins GM, Thomas J.
PMID: 2044109
Cardiovasc Clin. 1991;21(3):263-76.

Development of strategies to prevent CHD in blacks is impeded by the virtual absence of clinical trials demonstrating the feasibility and effectiveness of interventions in blacks. The wholesale generalization that interventions effective (or ineffective) in whites are similarly effective...

The epidemiology of idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathy in a biracial community.

American journal of epidemiology

Coughlin SS, Szklo M, Baughman K, Pearson TA.
PMID: 2293752
Am J Epidemiol. 1990 Jan;131(1):48-56. doi: 10.1093/oxfordjournals.aje.a115484.

An epidemiologic study of idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathy was carried out in order to identify possible risk factors for this often fatal cause of heart failure in young adults. Possible associations with black race and other genetic and environmental factors...

Alcohol and atherosclerosis.

Annals of internal medicine

Steinberg D, Pearson TA, Kuller LH.
PMID: 2024865
Ann Intern Med. 1991 Jun 01;114(11):967-76. doi: 10.7326/0003-4819-114-11-967.

Considerable progress has been made in recent years in our understanding of atherogenesis and, in particular, of how it relates to lipoprotein metabolism. In this conference, we attempt to re-evaluate the data on the relation between alcohol intake and...
