Description

The MPP was started in the early 70's as a screening survey in the middle-aged population of Malmö, the third largest city of Sweden. Subjects born in Malmö and residents of the city were invited for a clinical examination, questionnaire and blood sampling. In all 22,444 men and 10,902 women participated during the period 1974-1992. During a later follow-up, the MPP-Re-examination (MPP-RES) in all 17,284 of the original screenes attended in 2002-2006.

Purpose:

1. To screen for cardiovascular risk-factors and alcohol abuse in the local population, and to offer intervention to subjects at risk;








2. To use DNA (at MPP-RES) for analyses of genetic risks of type-2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease, as well as some cancers.
