The findings provide important information on cardiovascular disease in an older U.S. population and lead to early treatment of risk factors associated with disease and identification of factors that may be important in disease prevention. OBM clearance is being sought for data collection activities at only one of the four CHS field centers (the Pittsburgh field center), which are expected to end on May 31, 2008.
