Research in Asia vs. findings in U.S. suggest risk of ischemic stroke AND bleeding with oral anticoagulant may be higher in East Asian vs. non-Asian AF patients. However, data is lacking in Asians living in the U.S. With its diversity goal, AoU is expected to recruit substantive number of Asian Americans. AoU can be leveraged to see whether this finding extends to Asian Americans, who have different exposures (behavioral, social, environmental) than those in Asian countries.
