Cohort of Swedish Men - Clinical (COSM-C)

From May 2010 through June 2013, over 3,000 men in the COSM who were over age 75 and living in Västerås received an invitation letter to participate in a validated cognitive phone interview, complete an FFQ and a one-day food diary, and participate in a health examination. The health examination includes the same data collection as in the SMC-Clinical recruitment 2. In addition, the wives of these men who are enrolled in the SMC are also invited to participate in the study. Data collection for this clinical subcohort is currently ongoing and, to date, participation in the cognitive phone interview is over 83%.
