PIVUS - Prospective Investigation of the Vasculature in Uppsala Seniors

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

Creator/Principal investigator(s):

Lars Lind - Uppsala University, Department of Medical Sciences

Description:

The PIVUS study started in 2001 with the primary aim to investigate the predicive power of different measurements of endothelial function and arterial compliance in a random sample of 1000 subjects aged 70 living in the community of Uppsala. As secondary aims, the study also included measurements of cardiac function and structure by ultrasound and MRI, evaluation of atherosclerosis by ultrasound and MRI, 7 day food intake recordings, detailed ECG analysis, cardiovascular autonomic function, body composition by DXA, DNA analysis and lung function, as well as a number of biochemical markers.

Subject area:

HEALTH (CESSDA Topic Classification)
