L’étude de Framingham : Quel rôle dans l'histoire de l'épidémiologie des facteurs de risque ?

Abstract : At the middle of the 20th century, the “risk factor epidemiology” is a turning point in the history of epidemiology. The concept of risk factor is at the core of a new form of causal epidemiology. Yet this concept is ambiguous and the risk factor epidemiology is today criticized as too individualistic and as inducing risk relativism. Through a history of Framingham Heart Study, a cardiovascular cohort study that began in 1947 and that is often seen as emblematic of the “risk factor epidemiology”, this paper aims at lightening these ambiguities and criticisms.
