Haemostatic Function and Ischaemic Heart Disease
The Northwick Park Heart Study (NPHS) (Meade and North, 1977; Meade et al., 1980) is a prospective study of haemostatic function in the pathogenesis of ischaemic heart disease (IHD). It is based on the traditional application of epidemiology — that is, the comparison of groups to draw general inferences about causation and pathogenesis.
