Case control cohort: The details have been previously published: American Heart Journal. 2010;160:371-379 e372. Briefly, a nested case:control cohort of CATHGEN participants who had experienced death or MI (n = 250) after their index catheterization and age-, sex-, and race-matched controls (n = 250) who were free of death/MI > 2 years after cardiac catheterization was identified as part of the MURDOCK Horizon 1 Cardiovascular Disease Study.21 Sufficient RNA for microarray analysis was available in 447 members of this cohort.
Observational cohort: 224 sequential CATHGEN samples were selected for whole blood RNA analysis, of which, 191 had sufficient RNA for microarray analysis.
