The Gubbio Study is a prospective epidemiological study on the population residing in the city of Gubbio, Italy. Original objectives of the Study were the control of hypertension and the role of cellular electrolyte handling in hypertension. Other objectives were added during the 30-year activity of the Study. The original target cohort consists of individuals with age ≥ 5 years residing within the medieval walls of the city. To complete family genealogies, individuals residing outside the walls were also included. Three active screenings (exam) were conducted. A total of 5,376 individuals (response rate = 92%) participated in exam 1 which was performed in 1983-86. Follow-up exams were performed in 1989-92 and 2001-2007. Data categories included demographics, personal and family medical history, lifestyle habits, education, type of work, anthropometry, blood pressure, pulse rate, blood biochemistry, urine biochemistry, and special investigations on cellular electrolyte handling. Electrocardiogram, echocardiogram, 24-hour ambulatory blood pressure, and uroflowmetry were performed in selected subgroups defined by age and/or sex. Data about hospitalizations, mortality, and causes of death were collected starting from completion of exam 1. The Study shared the data with other studies. Data are not an open access.

Abstract

The Gubbio Study is a prospective epidemiological study on the population residing in the city of Gubbio, Italy. Original objectives of the Study were the control of hypertension and the role of cellular electrolyte handling in hypertension. Other objectives were added during the 30-year activity of the Study. The original target cohort consists of individuals with age ≥ 5 years residing within the medieval walls of the city. To complete family genealogies, individuals residing outside the walls were also included. Three active screenings (exam) were conducted. A total of 5,376 individuals (response rate = 92%) participated in exam 1 which was performed in 1983-86. Follow-up exams were performed in 1989-92 and 2001-2007. Data categories included demographics, personal and family medical history, lifestyle habits, education, type of work, anthropometry, blood pressure, pulse rate, blood biochemistry, urine biochemistry, and special investigations on cellular electrolyte handling. Electrocardiogram, echocardiogram, 24-hour ambulatory blood pressure, and uroflowmetry were performed in selected subgroups defined by age and/or sex. Data about hospitalizations, mortality, and causes of death were collected starting from completion of exam 1. The Study shared the data with other studies. Data are not an open access.
