Study Description

Rheumatic heart disease (RHD) is a major cause of cardiovascular death and disability amongst young adults. Building on a sample collection established for and genotyped in several earlier successful candidate gene studies, this case-control study investigated host genetic susceptibility to RHD using a genome-wide approach. The current dataset comprises over 850 individuals recruited in Uttar Pradesh, India, including cases of RHD based on echocardiographic diagnosis and controls recruited on the basis of normal echocardiograms. For this analysis all available samples were genotyped using the Illumina HumanCore-24 BeadChip platform. Efforts are now underway to establish new sample collections in other areas of India as well as Pakistan and later other neighbouring countries.
