Framingham Heart Study
From Citizendium, the Citizens' Compendium
- "The objective of the Framingham Heart Study was to identify the common factors or characteristics that contribute to CVD by following its development over a long period of time in a large group of participants who had not yet developed overt symptoms of CVD or suffered a heart attack or stroke."
Research that has emerged from the study includes:
- Framingham risk score for events at 5 and 10 years
- Framingham congestive-heart-failure score
- Framingham atrial fibrillation risk
- History of the Framingham Heart Study
