Abstract Objective Cohort study (the SUN project) to identify dietary determinants of hypertension, diabetes, obesity and coronary heart disease (CHD), among other conditions. Design The SUN project is a Mediterranean dynamic prospective follow-up (cohort) study assessing participants every 2 years. The recruitment started in 2000 and it is permanently open (this is a dynamic cohort). A preliminary case–control study of myocardial infarction was also conducted, selecting incident cases of… Expand

Cohort profile: the 'Seguimiento Universidad de Navarra' (SUN) study.
TLDR
To explore this idea further, Professor Miguel Ángel Martı́nez travelled to the Harvard School of Public Health to learn about similar large cohort studies currently being conducted in the US, such as the Nurses’ Health Study and the Health Professionals’ Follow-up study. Expand
Mediterranean Diet and Health Outcomes in the SUN Cohort
TLDR
It is concluded that this cohort has provided good evidence that a high MedDiet adherence is associated with a reduced incidence of all-cause mortality, fatal and non-fatal major cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes, weight gain, metabolic syndrome, depression, cognitive decline, and nephrolithiasis. Expand
[Incidence of hypertension in a cohort of Spanish university graduates: the SUN study].
TLDR
The objective was to estimate the incidence of hypertension in a cohort of university graduates in Spain and provided new evidence confirming that hypertension is one of the most important public health problems in Spain. Expand
Adherence to the Mediterranean diet and risk of coronary heart disease in the Spanish EPIC Cohort Study.
TLDR
Mediterranean diet adherence was associated with a significantly reduced CHD risk in this Mediterranean country, supporting its role in primary prevention of CHD in healthy populations. Expand
Dietary inflammatory index and all-cause mortality in large cohorts: The SUN and PREDIMED studies.
TLDR
Support is provided for the hypothesis that a pro-inflammatory diet is associated with increased all-cause mortality in two large Spanish cohorts and across these two cohorts and results published based on other cohorts. Expand
A longitudinal analysis of diet quality scores and the risk of incident depression in the SUN Project
TLDR
Better adherence to the MDS, PDP and AHEI-2010 was associated with a reduced risk of depression among Spanish adults, and the data suggested a threshold effect so that although therisk of depression was reduced when comparing moderate versus lower adherence, there was not much extra benefit for the comparison between moderate and high or very high adherence.

Nut consumption and 5-y all-cause mortality in a Mediterranean cohort: The SUN project
Abstract Objective The aim of this study was to assess the association between nut consumption and all-cause mortality after 5-y follow-up in a Spanish cohort. Methods The SUN (SeguimientoExpand
Mediterranean diet and the risk of COVID-19 in the ‘Seguimiento Universidad de Navarra’ cohort
TLDR
In conclusion, better adherence to the Mediterranean diet may be associated with a lower risk of COVID-19, and this inverse association remained robust within subgroups and in sensitivity analyses. Expand
Living at a Geographically Higher Elevation Is Associated with Lower Risk of Metabolic Syndrome: Prospective Analysis of the SUN Cohort
TLDR
Living at geographically higher altitude was associated with a lower risk of developing MetS in the SUN project, suggesting that geographical elevation may be an important factor linked to metabolic diseases. Expand
Hypertension and changes in cognitive function in a Mediterranean population.
TLDR
In this Mediterranean cohort, hypertension was inversely associated with cognitive function, but an attenuation of this detrimental association by a moderate/high adherence to the Mediterranean diet was suggested. Expand

Mediterranean Diet and Stroke: Objectives and Design of the SUN Project
TLDR
The sharp contrast in dietary habits between the US and Spain together with the high between-subjects variability the authors have found in their Spanish cohort provides an exceptional opportunity to assess the aspects of the Mediterranean diet, which may be protective against stroke and other neurological disorders. Expand
Olive oil consumption and reduced incidence of hypertension: The SUN study
TLDR
In a Mediterranean population, olive oil consumption is found to be associated with a reduced risk of hypertension only among men, and the lack of association observed among women might be attributed to the overall lower incidence of hypertension found among females and the resulting lower statistical power. Expand
[The Mediterranean diet and cardiovascular disease: results of a pilot study from the SUN project (University of Navarre Follow-Up Study)].
TLDR
A Mediterranean diet pattern was found with a wide inter-subject variability and is likely to ensure the identification of associations between the consumption of given food items and the occurrence of the main outcomes the authors are targeting. Expand
Validation of self reported diagnosis of hypertension in a cohort of university graduates in Spain
TLDR
Self-reported hypertension among highly educated participants in a cohort study is a relatively valid tool to assess the hypertensive status of participants, however, the investigators should be cautious when using self-reported blood pressure values. Expand
Risk stratification of coronary heart disease in Greece: final results from the CARDIO2000 Epidemiological Study.
TLDR
Several emerging lifestyle risk factors (education, depression, diet, passive smoking), in addition to the conventional ones, may contribute to the risk of coronary events in this population of patients. Expand
Risk of first non-fatal myocardial infarction negatively associated with olive oil consumption: a case-control study in Spain.
TLDR
The data suggest that olive oil may reduce the risk of coronary disease, and require confirmation in further observational studies and trials. Expand
Dietary Folate and the Risk of Nonfatal Myocardial Infarction
TLDR
Results in a Mediterranean population with natural plant foods as the main source of folate provide further evidence to support the hypothesis that dietary folate intake may be an independent protective factor for myocardial infarction. Expand
Role of fibre and fruit in the Mediterranean diet to protect against myocardial infarction: a case–control study in Spain
TLDR
The data suggest that a substantial part of the postulated benefits of the Mediterranean diet on coronary risk might be attributed to a high intake of fibre and fruit. Expand
Determinants of the adherence to an “a priori” defined Mediterranean dietary pattern
TLDR
Findings provide evidence supporting the progressive departure from the traditional MDP in younger and highly educated subjects of the Mediterranean area and a more active life-style is associated with a better compliance with the MDP. Expand
