The Hypertension-Insulin Resistance Family Study (HTN-IR)

phs001394 Cohort

Study Description

The HTN-IR Study, funded by NHLBI, was designed to explore genetic contributions to hypertension and glucose homeostasis traits among Hispanics using a family-based design. The baseline examination of the cohort included the euglycemic hyperinsulinemic clamp test from which the two key phenotypes were obtained: insulin sensitivity (M) and metabolic clearance rate of insulin (MCRI). Genome-wide genotyping was obtained under separate funding by NIDDK as a part of the GUARDIAN (Genetics Underlying Diabetes in Hispanics) Consortium.
