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.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The co-occurrence of pregnancy and a cardiovascular disease. The disease may precede or follow FERTILIZATION and it may or may not have a deleterious effect on the pregnant woman or FETUS.

Restoration of functions to the maximum degree possible in a person or persons suffering from a CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASE. It also includes cardiac conditioning and SECONDARY PREVENTION in patients with elevated cardiovascular risk profile.

Processes and properties of the CARDIOVASCULAR SYSTEM as a whole or of any of its parts.

Biological actions and events that support the functions of the CARDIOVASCULAR SYSTEM.

Unexpected rapid natural death due to cardiovascular collapse within one hour of initial symptoms. It is usually caused by the worsening of existing heart diseases. The sudden onset of symptoms, such as CHEST PAIN and CARDIAC ARRHYTHMIAS, particularly VENTRICULAR TACHYCARDIA, can lead to the loss of consciousness and cardiac arrest followed by biological death. (from Braunwald's Heart Disease: A Textbook of Cardiovascular Medicine, 7th ed., 2005)
