atrial fibrillation
Atrial fibrillation
Control subjects with no atrial fibrillation

Detailed Description:

Blood samples and data will be collected from subjects with atrial fibrillation and normal controls. The primary aim of future research using these samples is to identify mechanisms and pathogenesis of atrial fibrillation. Through this information, we hope to identify targets for new therapies and improve knowledge and understanding of atrial fibrillation. Identification of disease genes could improve strategies that prevent progression of atrial fibrillation to more persistent disease.
