Baseline CVD Biomarkers

A subset of WHI participants have CVD biomarkers at baseline through a core set of WHI studies (additional participants have had CVD biomarkers measured through smaller ancillary studies, but those are not described here). A description of the participants with both CVD biomarker data and imputed GWAS data can be found here.
