Focuses on blood donor health studied within The Danish Blood Donor Study. A main area of focus is iron metabolism and causes and consequences of iron deficiency. In collaboration with deCODE genetics participants are being genotyped to study genetic components of: healthy ageing, infections, iron homeostasis, anemia, ADHD, depression, asthma, allergy, inflammatory skin- and rheumatic diseases, RLS, headache, migraine and bleeding disturbances. Included in the study is a large biobank of consecutive plasma samples ideal for identification of early disease markers.
