  1. EPIDEMIOLOGY: OXIDATIVE STRESS AND EARLY ATHEROSCLEROSIS
    David Jacobs; Fiscal Year: 2003
    ..The investigators state that the analyses will allow testing several major hypotheses about the early evolution atherosclerosis and CHD. They further state that the conclusions will identify new strategies for the prevention of CHD. ..
  2. EPIDEMIOLOGY: OXIDATIVE STRESS AND EARLY ATHEROSCLEROSIS
    David R Jacobs; Fiscal Year: 2010
    ..The YALTA, Young Adult Longitudinal Trends in Antioxidants, study will continue to identify oxidation-related factors in young and middle-aged adults and their association with subclinical and clinical cardiovascular disease. ..
  3. EPIDEMIOLOGY: OXIDATIVE STRESS AND EARLY ATHEROSCLEROSIS
    David Jacobs; Fiscal Year: 2007
    ..By measuring several antioxidants and oxidative damage in different compounds, this project will continue to test the association of antioxidants and oxidative damage with early/subclinical CHD and offer new avenues for CHD prevention. ..
  4. Effects of the DASH Diet in Albuminuria
    David Jacobs; Fiscal Year: 2003
