The results will be evaluated epidemiologically and compared to those gained from participating patients groups. Blood and tissue samples of the participants will be stored at -140°C as a scientific heritage for future research projects of the LIFE network and its follow-up projects.

As part of the excellence initiative of the Free State of Saxony LIFE is a large-scale research project of the University of Leipzig, which is coordinated by the Medical Faculty and which cooperates with numerous partners.
