Condition: Coronary artery disease
Key Inclusion Criteria
- Participants enrolled and to be enrolled in Barbra Streisand Women’s Heart Center research studies
Full Study Name
Barbra Streisand Women’s Heart Center (BSWHC) Data and Specimen Repository Study (IRB no. 15124)
The purpose of this study is to collect long-term data and blood and urine samples to further understand heart artery disease. In so doing, researchers aim to identify biomarker and genetic factors that influence heart arteries. A biomarker is a biological molecule found in blood, other body fluids, or tissues that may be a sign of a condition or disease. Participants will be contacted annually to complete a phone interview about topics such as clinical symptoms, medications, quality of life, hospitalizations, myocardial infarction (heart attack) and stroke.
The study will focus on individuals who are enrolled as a participant in one or more research studies at Barbra Streisand Women’s Heart Center and who have indicated an interest in donating data and specimens for future research.
