On the other hand, the short-term (5-10 years) risk is better calculated using the classical algorithms (Framingham, REGICOR {Registre GIroni del COR}), as they include age, sex, total cholesterol or LDL, and smoking [4].
KORA (Cooperative Health Research in the Region of Augsburg; Augsburg, Germany), Heinz Nixdorf Recall (HNR; Ruhr Area, Germany), and REGICOR (Registre Gironi del COR; Girona region, Spain) are population-based cohorts (ages 25-75 years at baseline).
Measurements were made at about 20 sites for PM and 40 sites for N[O.sub.x] and N[O.sub.2] for the IMPROVE-Stockholm, HNR, and KORA study areas, and at twice as many sites for the REGICOR study area.
The study was conducted within the well-defined population-based cohorts of the REGICOR (Registre Gironl del Cor; Girona Heart Registry) study in Girona, a dense Mediterranean city of nearly 100,000 inhabitants in northeast Spain.
The initial sample consisted of 2,067 participants, 36-82 years of age, who were evaluated at baseline (2003-2006) within a population-based cohort of the REGICOR study (Grau et al.
Automated oscillometric devices (AODs) were used in nine cohorts: DCH, HUBRO, 60-year-olds, EPIC-MORGEN, EPIC-Prospect, EPIC-Oxford, HNR, SAPALDIA, and REGICOR. Three cohorts used sphygmomanometers (SDPP, SNAC-K, and EPIC-Umea), and two cohorts used either an AOD or a sphygmomanometer (TwinGene and KORA).
For example, instead of physical activity in categories (which was not available in REGICOR), a weekly leisure time physical activity variable was used.
We capitalized on the large and well-defined adult population of the REGICOR (Registre Gironi del Cor) cohort studies conducted in Girona, Spain.
We investigated this in the follow-up of participants of three population-based cohorts of the REGICOR (Registre Gironi del Cor: the Gerona Heart Register) study (Grau et al.
