Detailed information is available on each class of phenotypic variables listed below. The phenotypes range from biomarkers to imaging and detailed incident disease information.
Criteria for adjudicating coronary disease outcomes is available beneath the table on a PDF attachmement. Please inquire for the numbers available for each phenotype as it may vary. Please address phenotype inquiries to firstname.lastname@example.org with a copy to email@example.com.
