Abstract

The Family Blood Pressure Program (FBPP) consists of 4 independently established multicenter networks of investigators who have complementary approaches to the genetics of blood pressure levels and hypertension. The program has recruited participants from the African American, Mexican American, Asian, and non-Hispanic white populations. Each network utilized study designs, laboratory measurements, and analytic methods that made efficient use of the unique characteristics of their populations and the investigators expertise. The individual networks subsequently unified core study components into a single cohesive program. The unified FBPP includes (1) standardized clinic and laboratory protocols for core variables to facilitate direct comparison of results among networks, (2) coordination among laboratories to avoid unnecessary duplication of effort, (3) utilization of a single laboratory for genome-wide marker typing, and (4) a pooled data set containing phenotype and genotype information from > 11 000 individuals.
