Health2010-14: Monitoring Biomarkers of Chronic Diseases in the General Population

2014-08-27 03:17:05 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The overall aim of the Health2010-14 is to monitor the prevalence and trends of common chronic diseases (osteoporosis, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, asthma, allergy, and eczema) that are often un-diagnosed in the general population as well as biomarkers of micronutrient status. Specific aims include identification of novel lifestyle and genetic risk factors for the above diseases by investigating gene-lifestyle interactions.

Description

Over a 5-year period a series of population-based studies are carried out including a total of up to 10,000 persons aged 18-69 years selected from the general population of Copenhagen, Denmark. The study also include a follow-up of a previous population study (the Health2006). Participants complete questionnaires on health, lifestyle, and social factors and undergo a health examination including measurements of metabolic biomarkers, allergy tests, anthropometric measures, bioimpedance, biomarkers of micronutrients, spirometry.
