Study Description

The Bangladesh Risk of Acute Vascular Events (BRAVE) study is a hospital-based case-control study in Bangladesh which was established by the Cardiovascular Epidemiology Unit of Cambridge University in the UK in partnership with the key local cardiology and research centres to examine environmental, genetic, lifestyle and biochemical determinants of myocardial infarction (MI) among this South Asian population. By the end of 2016, this study has recruited ~8000 clinically confirmed first-ever MI cases (with a significant proportion being early-onset MI), and ~8000 healthy controls frequency-matched by age and sex. This site hosts data from ~500 whole genomes and ~1500 whole exomes (50% cases and 50% controls)
