Abstract

A panel of biomedical and behavioral scientists were charged with the task of critically evaluating all available research and theory linking behavior to coronary heart disease. The task was divided into five topic areas: (1) association of coronary-prone behavior and coronary heart disease; (2) assessment of the 'type A' behavior pattern; (3) physiologic mechanisms linking behavior to coronary heart disease; (4) cultural and developmental factors; and (5) intervention strategies. The review panels developed summary statements which delineated the perceived strengths and short-comings of the theory and data for their respective sections and provided recommendations to the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute concerning future research.
