Scientific Questions Being Studied

The lipid hypothesis was based on an initial evidence that cardiac diseases are associated with high total cholesterol. This hypothesis has significantly changed our lifestyle during the last half century although many contradictory studies exist. Has the association between heart diseases and cholesterol changes during this long period? Or, is the original association result still valid now? And, is there another association mechanism that can explain the major contradictions? A re-evaluation of the association is necessary. AllOfUs provides a much larger EHR datasets for this association study than the original datasets that had only a few thousands of patients.

Project Purpose(s)

  • Disease Focused Research (myocardial infarction, stroke)

Scientific Approaches

Standard quantitative association approach and the datasets for patients with cholesterol measurements will be used.

Anticipated Findings

We expect to find changes on the association between cholesterol and heart diseases, and new association mechanism may also be found.

Demographic Categories of Interest

This study will not center on underrepresented populations.

Data Set Used
