Additional Information

Official title Database Registry of the Intermountain Heart Collaborative Study
Principal investigator Joseph B Muhlestein, MD
Description This is a registry (database) project; there are no investigational treatments, drug or procedures associated with participation in registry activities. This project is an organized data gathering and storing (database) endeavor with specific focus on the precursors, modifiers, biological, and genetic parameters of heart disease and related medical conditions. Data collection will not immediately influence the course of treatment for any patient.Sample testing and data utilization for basic science, clinical, and epidemiologic and publication projects can be initiated using the databank. The registry will enable researchers to determine best medical practices for predicting, preventing, and treating heart disease. The registry will: 1) develop standard methods to collect data and specimens which will be used for research to characterize patients diagnosed with heart disease as well as healthy controls and to assess differences in demographics and patient outcomes in both populations; 2) collect, process, and store patients' clinical data and tissue/blood samples; 3) analyze data collected; 4) use these resources to identify genes, genetic polymorphisms, genetic mutations, clinical methods and procedures, and/or biomarkers that predict, prevent, or treat heart disease and/or are associated correlate with lifestyle or disease outcomes; 5) publish and disseminate results.
