This unpublished report describes a three-year study aimed at examining the effects of short-term and long-term air pollution exposure on cardiovascular disease outcomes in a high-risk population, linking biomarker and genomic data to air quality data. Kraus and colleagues at Duke University used previously collected data from CATHGEN, a cohort of approximately 7,000 individuals undergoing coronary artery catheterization in North Carolina between 2001 and 2010.

Making the MOSES data and specimens available

May 14, 2018

HEI is making available to the public the database and material of the Multicenter Ozone Study in oldEr Subjects (MOSES). In the interest of scientific transparency and to encourage the broadest possible use of the data and the material, HEI has set up a streamlined process to access the data and the material (subject to the limited quantities available). The MOSES database may be accessed by anyone who is interested. Any qualified researcher from a not-for-profit US research center interested in doing specific analyses can request the samples.
