Jelena Kornej, EHRA 2018 – The LIFE-Adult-Study
Jelena Kornej (Heart Centre, University of Leipzig, Saxony) discusses the LIFE-Adult-Study, a population-based cohort study including 10,000 participants from Leipzig and eastern Germany. The study was initiated and conducted by the Leipzig Research Centre for Civilisation Diseases (LIFE), and the main objective was to analyse the prevalence, genetic predisposition and early-onset markers as well as the lifestyle factors for civilisation diseases such as heart function vascular diseases and metabolic diseases as well as dementia, sleep disorders, allergies and more. Dr Kornej then goes on to discuss her work on whether PR interval prolongation could be considered an intermediate phenotype towards atrial fibrillation.
