STAMPEED: Cardiovascular Health Study (CHS) GWAS to identify genetic variants associated with aging and CVD risk factors and events

The primary aim of the study is to conduct a genome-wide association study to identify genetic variants associated with the incidence of myocardial infarction (MI), stroke, and heart failure (HF) among participants enrolled in the Cardiovascular Health Study (CHS) who were free of clinical cardiovascular disease at baseline. The secondary aim is to conduct genome-wide association study of other phenotypes in CHS. The study is an ancillary study to CHS. CHS is a population-based cohort study of risk factors for heart disease and stroke among older adults recruited at 4 US sites in 1989-1990. Subjects underwent an extensive baseline examination, and annual follow-up examinations through 1988-1999.
