AoU Research Priorities Use Cases

How well do the ACC/AHA Atherosclerotic Cardiovascular Disease (ASCVD) risk scores work in Asian Americans?

The ASCVD risk scores was introduced by American College of Cardiology (ACC) & American Heart Association (AHA) in 2013 to provide 10-year risk for use in Blood Cholesterol Guideline. Absence of Asian Americans in the cohorts that provided the data for developing the scores may limit its precision in these individuals. AoU offers unique opportunity to collect CVD risk factors & outcomes in Asian Americans and its heterogeneous subgroups & ability to test current/create tailored risk scores.
