CV Risk scores: homework for #NephJC

The HOPE-3 study used something called the INTERHEART risk score. What is it? Developed by investigators at McMaster's PHRI, it is available freely at this link.

But there are some other INTERHEART scores, some with lipid levels and apoB:A1 ratios. Here is a snapshot of what one of the other version looks like, taken from their validation study:

SPRINT, on the other hand, used the well known Framingham risk score, using a >15% risk over 10 years as one of the ways to get into the trial (apart from Age >75, CKD, clinical or subclinical CVD etc). This is available at multiple places and in most apps, this link will work if you work in US, Liberia or Burma, this one for the rest of the world (and here are printable versions). Framingham, of course, does include lipid values (total and HDL cholesterol).
