Dissecting determinants of interpersonal metabolic responses to whole grains and refined grains as part of high or low carbohydrate/fat meals: Towards Personalized Nutrition with SCAPIS2-HOME.
Research Project, 2024 – 2025

The Swedish CArdioPulmonary bioImage Study – SCAPIS – is a nationwide, open-access, population-based cohort for the study of cardiovascular disease (CVD) and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).

The aim is to predict and prevent cardiovascular and pulmonary disease. A total of 30,154 men and women in Sweden, from 50 to 64 years old, have been recruited and investigated with detailed imaging and functional analyses of the cardiovascular and pulmonary systems. The first public release of data was on March 17, 2021. All researchers based in Sweden, or international researchers in collaboration with an applicant based in Sweden, are welcome to apply for data.


SCAPIS 2 has started
SCAPIS 2, the reexamination of half of the cohort from SCAPIS 1, started in Gothenburg in January 2024 and has then successfully started at all sites but Umeå (planned start April 22). The same study protocol will be used as in the core study, SCAPIS 1. The planned end date of the study is in February 2026 and the ambition from the study is to start sharing data six months after that, i.e. in September 2026.
