Description:

INTERGENE is a research program at the Sahlgrenska Academy, Universty of Gothenburg. The study is a collaboration between Department of community medicine and public health and Department of acute and cardiovascular medicine, Institution of Medicine.The background is that in spite of increasing insight in risk factors predisposing for coronary artery disease and improved treatment of those affected, the incidence of coronary heart disease is still high, even in younger age groups. The total disease risk expresses interaction between the gene frequency in a population, their lifestyle and the environment. The genetic mechanism can be due to either the increase in the classic risk factors, increased vulnerability for these factors and/or other genetic factors affecting the development of coronary heart disease.
Clinical data and data from questionnaires were collected in 2001-2004. The study is both a case-control study and a cross sectional study. The cases are consecutive patients with coronary heart disease, and consists of 623 patients from hospitals in Västra Götaland. The controls are thei

Population:

Individuals aged 25-74 years and registered in Västra Götaland in april 2001

Sampling procedure:

The study cohort comprises 3614 randomly sampled individuals aged 25 to 74 years, living in the Västra Götalands region. The sampling was conducted 2001-2004. During the same time period 623 survivors of acute coronary syndrome (ACS) and were examined and included in the study. The upper age limit for the first event was 75. Both genders were included. There was no lower age limit. The study also includes 400 first-degree biological relatives identified via the ACS patients. They were examined according to the same protocol as the cases and the sampled cohort.
