Homburg Cream & Sugar Study (HCS)
The purpose of this study is to prospectivly analyze the correlation of triglyceride tolerance and glucose tolerance with cardiovascular morbidity and mortality in patients with stable coronary artery disease within 18 months and to determine, whether measurement of triglyceride tolerance can discriminate patients at risk for cardiovascular events.
