Reporting from China: Sibling Death in Childhood, Young Adulthood Linked to Risk for CVD

Sibling death in childhood and early adulthood is associated with an increased risk for cardiovascular disease (CVD), according to a study published online Jan. 8 in JAMA Network Open.

Chen Huang, from the School of Public Health at Fudan University in Shanghai, and colleagues examined the association between sibling death in the early decades of life and subsequent risk for incident early-onset CVD in a population-based cohort study composed of 2,098,659 individuals born in Denmark from 1978 to 2018.
