Epidemiology of diseases

Main participant(s):
Breteler Dr. M.M.B., Hofman Prof. Dr. A., Jong Prof. Dr. P.T.V.M. de, Witteman Dr. J.C.M.

General objectives:
This program includes scientific research in cardiovascular epidemiology, neuro-epidemiology and ophthalmologic epidemiology.

Cardiovascular epidemiologic research focusses on the determinants of atherosclerosis and coronary heart disease in the elderly, and on cardiovascular diseases in women. The research is based on the Rotterdam Study and it addresses inflammation markers and hemostasis as determinants of cardiovascular diseases in the elderly, and the effects of menopause, endogenous hormones and hormone replacement therapy in women.

Neuro-epidemiologic research focusses on the etiology of neurodegenerative and cerebrovascular diseases, including dementia and Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease, stroke and cerebral white matter lesions. The research emphasizes the role of vascular factors in the etiology of these diseases, with use of state of the art neuro-imaging techniques (MRI, PET, TCD).

Ophthalmological epidemiologic research focusses on determinants of macula degeneration and glaucoma. The emphasis is on the putative role of genetic factors and vascular factors in the etiology of these diseases.

Key words:Atherosclerosis, Alzheimer's disease, cardiovascular diseases, cerebrovascular disorders, dementia, glaucoma, macular degeneration, Parkinson's disease, white matter lesions.

Basic epidemiologic research

Main participant(s):
Duijn Dr. C.M.van, Pols Prof. Dr. H.A.P., Sandkuijl L.J.

General objectives:
This program includes research in the fields of genetic epidemiology and endocrinologic epidemiology.

Genetic epidemiologic research aims at quantifying the population risk of disorders associated with genetic risk factors and at identifying new genetic factors involved in complex genetic disorders. For the empirical studies, the emphasis is on neurodegenerative and neurovascular disorders.

The work in endocrinological epidemiology focusses on the question whether circulating hormone levels are associated with incident diseases of the elderly and with parameters of frailty. The emphasis is on determinants of locomotor diseases (osteoporosis, osteoarthritis), and on sex hormones and thyroid hormones as determinants of disease.

Key words:Alzheimer's disease, endocrinological epidemiology, genetic epidemiology, sex hormones, thyroid hormones, Parkinson's disease, osteoporosis, osteoarthrosis.

Clinical epidemiology

main participant(s) :
 Hunink Prof. Dr. M.G.M., Krestin Prof. Dr. G.P., Stijnen Prof. Dr. Th., Stricker Dr. B.H.Ch.

General objectives:
This program comprises three parts: clinical epidemiology in collaboration with radiology, biostatistics, and pharmaco-epidemiology.

The clinical epidemiology group collaborates with the department of radiology in a joint research program for the Assessment of Radiological Technology (ART program). The program's research focusses on the assessment of medical imaging technology, especially diagnostic imaging but also image-guided therapies, with an emphasis on cardiovascular disease. Methodological research in the ART program focusses on developing the methods for evaluating diagnostic imaging procedures using stochastic modelling and utility assessement related to diagnostic testing and therapeutic outcomes.

The biostatistics group provides quantitative support for various studies in the Erasmus Medical Center Rotterdam. For its own research, the biostatistics group focusses on the application of new developments in statistics, such as new analytic methods for dependent observations, like random effect models, Baysian methods and sequential analysis.

Pharmaco-epidemiologic research focusses on unintended effects of medications, and the effects of medication use under common circumstances in large populations.

Key words:biostatistics, clinical epidemiology, diagnostic procedures, imaging techniques, pharmaco-epidemiology, prognostic factors, radiology, research methods.
