Childhood arterial ischaemic stroke

This review of articles and research papers ( Lancet Neurology 2008; 7:425-435) regarding the subject of childhood stroke is useful to both stroke physicians and pediatricians. Amlie-Lefond C et al, mentioned that stroke is increasingly recognised as a cause of childhood disability and lifelong morbidity. Diagnosis of stroke in children is often delayed owing to […]

A genome-wide genotyping study in patients with ischaemic stroke

Despite evidence of a genetic role in stroke, the identification of common genetic risk factors for this devastating disorder remains problematic. The researchers aimed to identify any common genetic variability exerting a moderate to large effect on risk of ischaemic stroke, and to generate publicly available genome-wide genotype data to facilitate others doing the same […]
