Coronary heart disease (CHD) poses a major health burden in the Gulf countries. It is the leading cause of mortality and morbidity in the world and poses an enormous societal burden in the Gulf countries. Early detection of disease is imperative to reduce the health care burden and financial costs associated with CHD. Knowledge of novel genetic and proteomic markers of CHD will provide more precise estimates of risk while defining the pathways important in individual patients, revealing new targets for intervention, and ultimately enabling an individualized approach to care. To translate recent advances in genomics and proteomics into clinical practice, these newly discovered biomarkers will need to be evaluated in patients of diverse ethnic groups with varying characteristics, environmental factors, and medication use. The investigators propose to establish a biorepository of plasma and Deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) linked to demographic and clinical variables to facilitate biomarker studies of CHD risk, progression, and outcome. The overarching goal in developing the Qatar Cardiovascular Biorepository (QCBio) is to create a resource that fosters research aimed at identifying novel biochemical and genetic markers of CHD. A biorepository with linkage to clinical data will also provide an invaluable resource for cardiovascular research, including genomic and proteomic studies of CHD and development of biomarkers for early detection of disease and personalized drug therapy (pharmacogenetics and pharmacoproteomics).
The association between alcohol consumption and cardiovascular disease (CVD) has mostly been examined using broad endpoints or cause-specific mortality. The purpose of our study is to compare the effect of alcohol consumption in the aetiology of a range of cardiovascular disease phenotypes.
This study is dedicated to determination of the long term effectiveness of coronary heart disease (CHD) treatments - cardiac shock wave therapy (CSWT) in comparison with other kinds of medical and surgical treatment. For that purpose the investigators will observe the patients with CHD who enrolled in this study in their routine course of treatment. But the investigators will not interfere with the patient treatment. Each participant will be followed-up for five years. The collected data will allow to determine if the particular method, CSWT, could really make any additional contribution to the more traditional methods of CHD treatment and if the CSWT is only temporarily effective or could exert the long term effect as well.
The main purpose of this study is to examine the contribution of personality traits to marital satisfaction and well -being among couples coping with Coronary Heart Disease (CHD) and couples from the general population, and to health promoting behaviors and physical recovery among the ill partners.
This study will evaluate the efficacy of anacetrapib (100 mg) for 24 weeks relative to placebo, on plasma concentrations of Low Density Lipoprotein Cholesterol and assess the safety and tolerability of anacetrapib (100 mg) in participants with CHD/CHD risk-equivalent disease on stable dose regimen of statin with or without other lipid-modifying therapy. The two year extension to this study will further evaluate the long-term safety profile and efficacy of anacetrapib in CHD/CHD-risk equivalent patients who are on ongoing therapy with a statin with or without other lipid-modifying therapy.
