Additional diagnostic and treatment information and/or permission to obtain medical records has been sought for selected conditions and may be sought for specific nested studies in the future. For information on the noncancerous conditions reported to the Sister Study as of the current data release: number and distribution by type of condition, click links below:

Cardiovascular and Cerebrovascular Conditions
For information on heart attack, heart failure, angina, stroke, and transient ischemic attack diagnoses, please click on the links below. Information includes the number and distribution by timing (baseline or incident) and classification; diagnosis confirmation [medical or National Death Index (NDI) Plus/death certificate]; and selected characteristics of diagnosed participants. Heart attack, heart failure, and stroke are part of our noncancerous condition validation efforts where we systematically collect medical records to validate these conditions. Angina and transient ischemic attack diagnoses are not systematically confirmed by medical records, but have been confirmed where medical records are available.
