●研究の目的 / Objectives




This study aims to assess environmental and genetic factors associated with non-communicable diseases in the community, as well as to prevent, diagnose, and treat such diseases effectively.

We find risk factors related to diseases through the health checkups (examinations of atherosclerosis, bone density, rheumatologic diseases, and dental condition) amd follow-up surveys to use for future prevention, diagnosis, and treatment.

We will analyze genes related to the onset, severity, and response to treatment of diseases comprehensively.
