Abstract

The authors have measured and compared the lipid parameters in groups of adolescents aged from 15 to 18 years with and without a history of myocardial infarction of parents. No essential differences were seen among the lipid variables of the two groups. Nonetheless in a considerable part of both girls and boys in either group serum total cholesterol and LDL-cholesterol was higher than the 'acceptable' values. The authors propose the initiation of an immediate intervention program in the population serving preventive purposes.
