Uppsala Longitudinal Study of Adult Men (ULSAM)

This study is part of the collection Swedish Cohort Consortium (Cohorts.se) , Swedish Diet Cohort Consortium (SDCC)

Creator/Principal investigator(s):

Lars Lannfelt - Uppsala University, Department of Public Health and Caring Sciences

Description:

ULSAM started as a health investigation, focused at identifying metabolic risk factors for cardiovascular disease, to which all 50 year-old men living in Uppsala in 1970 were invited. Of these, 82% (2322 men) participated in the investigation. The men were thereafter investigated again at ages 60, 70, 77, 82, 88 and 93 years. In the 93 years investigation, which was completed in spring 2015, even spouses to the men from original cohort have participated. ULSAM is focused on several areas with a wide range of phenotypes collected. These areas include glucose and insulin metabolism, blood pressure, anthropometry, lipids and fatty acid composition, diet, cognitive function, socio-economic factors, heredity, medical history, and common risk factors for cardiovascular disease. In the latest investigation we are particularly focusing on the factors leading to healthy ageing. The longitudinal design of the study contributes to the collection of the same (or similar) phenotypes at several points in time. The loss of follow up end points is very low due to yearly matching with official cause-of-death a

Purpose:

The aim of Uppsala Study of Adult Men (ULSAM) is to investigate the risk factors for common diseases, including biochemical markers, variations in the genome and life style factors.
