SCAPIS: the power of thinking big

News: Jun 24, 2015

Cardiopulmonary diseases are responsible for a large number of deaths worldwide, and currently recommended methods of prevention and treatment may be outdated because of recent changes in risk factor patterns. The Swedish CArdioPulmonary bioImage Study (SCAPIS), led by researchers from the Wallenberg Laboratory, will extensively characterize 30,000 men and women aged 50-64 years to obtain relevant information that will improve our understanding of these diseases.
Headed by Professors Göran Bergström and Annika Rosengren, SCAPIS builds on the tradition of earlier large population studies but offers the advantage of combining size with state-of-the-art imaging technologies, large-scale omics, and epidemiological analyses. A comprehensive pilot study in Gothenburg was completed in 2012 and recruitment to the nationwide study has recently started.
The Swedish CArdioPulmonary bioImage Study (SCAPIS): objectives and design was published online on 19 June 2015 in the Journal of Internal Medicine.
