  3. aAnalyses were adjusted for setting of recruitment, duration between cardio-preventive screening and clinical examination program, and the SCORE value at the in-office screening program. SCORESP was based on total cholesterol and the single reading of systolic blood pressure at the in-office screening program. SCOREEP/BP-first (SCOREEP/BP-mean) were based on total cholesterol and the first reading (the mean of the second and third reading) of systolic blood pressure at clinical examination program
