The main goal of the AngioLaus sub-study was to obtain a detailed cardiovascular phenotype in a subset of the CoLaus participants. In order to do so, 350 hypertensive cases and 150 normotensive controls underwent additional phenotypization.

What data were collected?

In particular, we measured:

  1. Intima-media thickness (IMT) in the carotid arteries and the presence of plaques in the carotid and femoral arteries
  2. Pulse-wave velocity
  3. Central arterial pressure
  4. Endothelial function before and during reactive hyperemia.

Current phase

AngioLaus started in 2006. Data collection was finished in 2007. No follow-up is scheduled. The data have been analyzed.

500 individuals participated.
