      To determine whether the effect of South Asian ethnicity differs between studies of incidence and prognosis of coronary disease. Systematic literature review and meta-analysis, and cohort analysis from a national acute coronary syndrome (ACS) registry linked to mortality (National Institute of Cardiovascular Outcomes Research/Myocardial Infarction National Audit Project). International for the review, and England and Wales for the cohort analysis. The numbers of South Asians included in the meta-analysis were 111 555 (incidence) and 14 531 (prognosis) of whom 8251 were from the ACS cohort.
