The concept of the LEAD study includes a holistic examination of the overall health of the participants.

Probands return to our study centre every 4 years and provide us with valuable insights into the change of their state of health over a total term of 12 years. That’s how we can identify and investigate environmental impacts, personal lifestyles and genetic factors as triggers for pulmonary diseases and co-existing illnesses like cardiovascular diseases, diabetes and osteoporosis.

Our examination program includes 4 sections. Here you can find detailed information about the examinations.
