Dynamic longitudinal exposome trajectories in cardiovascular and metabolic non-communicable diseases (LongITools)
LongITools is a European research project studying the interactions between environmental, lifestyle, and biological factors to determine the risks of chronic cardiovascular and metabolic diseases.
LongITools is using a holistic approach as it studies the impact of many exposures simultaneously. This approach is also called the ‘exposome’ approach and enables the assessment of multiple environmental, socioeconomic, psychosocial, lifestyle, and biological factors to which an individual is exposed throughout their life. LongITools consortium uses encrypted data of around 11 million European participants from 24 different studies.
We hope the findings arising from the LongITools research will help to fill knowledge gaps and identify disease risks and when best to intervene. Further knowledge will help to identify opportunities for minimizing risk factors and enhancing protective factors, through evidence-based policies and interventions at critical life stages.
