We have determined the reversible circulating platelet aggregates (CPA) in a sample taken from the general population (414 consecutive individuals of both sexes, aged 20--60 years), examined during the initial screening of a multifactor primary prevention trial for coronary heart disease. Our findings show that in the overall population, less than 10% of circulating platelets occur as reversible aggregates. No differences were observed with regard to sex, age or presence of non-acute cardiovascular disease. No significant correlations were found between the extent of CPA and the main coronary risk factors.
