The InterAct Study


The InterAct consortium has set up a very large case-cohort study of diabetes incidence nested within the existing large multi-centre cohort 'EPIC'.

EPIC (European Prospective Investigation into Cancer & Nutrition) includes 350,000 participants from 10 European countries.  EPIC was designed to investigate the relationships between diet, nutritional status, lifestyle and environmental factors and the incidence of cancer and other chronic diseases.
