The special focuses of TCTC-CVD are to collaborate the major medical centers in Taiwan, for the researches and clinical trials about lipid, hypertension, and atherosclerosis-associated cardiovascular diseases. Since 2010, we have set up a large cohort of patients with cardiovascular risks or diseases with registry study, followed up them regularly with collection of bio-specimen, measurement of various biomarkers, central blood pressure, and home blood pressure, so that the researchers could evaluate the effect of new medications, treatment or diagnostic modalities thoroughly. We expect to explore effective drugs and treatment or diagnostic odalities for lipid, hypertension, and atherosclerosis-associated cardiovascular diseases for Taiwanese.
