    Background: The genetic basis of haemorrhagic stroke has proved difficult to unravel, partly hampered by the small numbers of subjects in any single study. A meta-analysis of all candidate gene association studies of haemorrhagic stroke (including ruptured subarachnoid haemorrhage and amyloid...

    Background: We have previously demonstrated a genetic basis to ischaemic stroke (Arch. Neurol. 2004). However, whether haemorrhagic stroke also has an underlying genetic aetiology remains controversial. Meta-analyses of published data provides much greater power than can be achieved by any...

    Background: Ischaemic stroke in persons of European descent has a genetic basis, but whether the stroke-susceptibility alleles, the strength of any association, and the extent of their attributable risks are the same in persons of non-European descent remains unanswered. Whether...

  • Research brief: Eat fish to reduce stroke risk.  // GP: General Practitioner;7/5/2004, p12 

    Fish consumption is inversely related to stroke risk, especially ischaemic stroke, according to a U.S. meta-analysis of eight studies. For example, people who ate fish once a week were 13 per cent less likely to suffer any stroke and 32 per cent less likely to have an ischaemic stroke.

    The fact that transient ischaemic attacks are a harbinger for the possible development of ischaemic stroke has been recognised for several decades. However, within the past decade, our concepts regarding transient ischaemic attacks as a distinct entity from stroke and the prognosis for transient...

  • Ischaemic stroke in hypertensive patients is associated with variations in the PDE4D genome region. Lövkvist, Håkan; Smith, Jan Gustav; Luthman, Holger; Höglund, Peter; Norrving, Bo; Kristoffersson, Ulf; Jönsson, Ann-Cathrin; Lindgren, Arne G // European Journal of Human Genetics;Sep2008, Vol. 16 Issue 9, p1117 

    Previous Icelandic studies reported that single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in the phosphodiesterase 4D (PDE4D) region and the 5-lipoxygenase activating protein ALOX5AP were associated with ischaemic stroke, whereas other studies reported ambiguous findings. We examined 932 ischaemic stroke...

    The article cites a research study, which reports that Aspirin reduces stroke in women. According to a meta-analysis of 95,000 patients from six randomized controlled trials, Aspirin reduces the risk of stroke in women without cardiovascular disease by 17 percent but increases the risk of stroke...

    The article comments on a study which focused on the impact of treatment on intravenous thrombolysis in patients with acute ischaemic stroke. Topics covered include the effect of age, stroke severity and age on the development of thrombolysis in patients. Also mentioned is the effectiveness of...
