Cox proportional hazards regression was used to perform individual-level and intra-pair analyses of the association between self-reported depression symptomatology scores and register-based diagnoses of ischemic heart disease.RESULTS: Higher depression symptomatology scores (both total, affective, and somatic) were associated with higher incidence of ischemic heart disease after multivariable adjustment in individual-level analyses.

A sensitivity analysis including a 2-year time lag of depression symptomatology to limit the risk of reverse causality showed similar results.CONCLUSION: Genetic factors and early life environment do not seem to explain the association between depressive mood and ischemic heart disease.",
