Further study details as provided by AstraZeneca:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Prevalence of lower extremities peripheral arterial disease (PAD), in subjects with a moderate CVD risk, with no overt cardiovascular diseases nor diabetes mellitus [ Time Frame: 1 visit ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Prevalence of cardiovascular risk factors in subjects with at least two CVD risk factors, with no overt cardiovascular diseases nor diabetes mellitus [ Time Frame: 1 visit ]
  • Cardiovascular risk level and risk factor treatment in the selected population assessed according to the locally adopted risk charts or algorithms [ Time Frame: 1 visit ]
  • Determinants (i.e., subject and physician characteristics) for PAD underdiagnosis in the selected population [ Time Frame: 1 visit ]
