NCT ID: NCT01207167 Enrolling by invitation - Clinical trial for Coronary Artery Disease

Mediators of Atherosclerosis in South Asians Living in America

MASALA
Start date: September 2010
Phase: N/A
Study type: Observational

South Asian (Indian, Pakistani, Bangladeshi, Nepali, and Sri Lankan) individuals have high rates of cardiovascular disease that is not explained by traditional cardiovascular risk factors. Though South Asians represent over one-quarter of the world's population, there are no longitudinal studies in this high-risk ethnic group. The investigators aim to establish a longitudinal study of South Asians at two United States centers to identify risk factors linked to subclinical atherosclerosis and incident cardiovascular disease. The purpose of this study is to understand the causes of heart disease and stroke in South Asians and compare these causes to those in other United States ethnic groups.

NCT ID: NCT01199692 Recruiting - Clinical trial for Obesity

Characterization of Metabolic Biomarkers in Varying Subjects

Start date: August 2010
Phase: N/A
Study type: Observational

Traditional dietary, lifestyle, behavioral and pharmacologic treatment strategies have proven relatively ineffective for treating obesity, and once metabolic abnormalities such as Type 2 Diabetes (T2D) develop, definitive strategies to prevent major cardiovascular events remain elusive. More positively, the identification of a scientific resolution for obesity and T2D in the short-term is not outside the bounds of reality. Because the complexity of metabolic regulation is likely to include already characterized biomarkers, as well as other unidentified factors, it is logical to sample subjects of various ages, gender, ethnicity, body mass distribution, dietary habits, exercise habits, medication requirements, and disease states to discover associations and pathways related to the restoration of normal metabolism.
