Quick Reference

A series of long-term cohort epidemiological and biomedical investigations that have been conducted with volunteers from the population of Framingham, Massachusetts, since 1948, primarily to investigate risk factors of coronary heart disease. The Framingham Studies established the importance of behavioral risk factors, such as lack of exercise, cigarette smoking, and physiological and metabolic factors, such as high blood pressure, elevated serum lipids, and non-insulin-dependent diabetes. Many important findings have emerged from this series of investigations. See http://www.nhlbi.nih.gov/about/framingham/ for details.

Subjects: public health and epidemiology.
