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... more »

AoU Research Priorities Use Cases

Toward a more precise risk prediction for ischemic stroke in Asians Americans with Atrial Fibrillation (AF)

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,... more »

AoU Research Priorities Use Cases

Are there sensitive and specific biomarkers to assess isolated postchallenge hyperglycemia in Hawaiians and Asian-Americans?

Asian Americans have the highest prevalence (51%) of undiagnosed type 2 diabetes (T2D), and half of Asian-Americans and Native Hawaiians with newly diagnosed T2D have isolated post-challenge hyperglycemia (iPCH). They might remain undiagnosed or experience delayed T2D if screening practices are limited to glycosylated hemoglobin and fasting plasma glucose measures. Identification of novel biomarkers to identify individuals... more »
