Paraoxonase 192 Gln→Arg Polymorphism: An Independent Risk Factor for Nonfatal Arterial Ischemic Stroke Among Young Adults
Background and Purpose— The etiology of arterial ischemic stroke (AIS) in the young remains unknown in one third of patients. Serum paraoxonase (PON1) is an HDL-associated esterase that hydrolyzesExpand

Estrogen Receptor Alpha and Beta Gene Polymorphisms Are Not Risk Factors for Recurrent Miscarriage in a Brazilian Population
The aim of this study was to determine the prevalence of alpha (ESR1: c.454-397T>C and c.454-351A>G) and beta (ESR2: 1082G>A and 1730G>A) estrogen receptor gene polymorphisms in 2 Brazilian ethnicExpand

Polymorphism C776G in the transcobalamin II gene and homocysteine, folate and vitamin B12 concentrations. Association with MTHFR C677T and A1298C and MTRR A66G polymorphisms in healthy children.
One of the etiologies of hyperhomocysteinemia is decreased vitamin B(12). Genetic variation in the transcobalamin II gene, the transporter of vitamin B(12) to the cells, may produce alteredExpand

Association between estrogen receptor alpha and beta gene polymorphisms and deep vein thrombosis.
BACKGROUND Estrogen and the estrogen receptors alpha (ESR1) and beta (ESR2) play a role in regulating genes, including coagulation and fibrinolysis genes. OBJECTIVE We investigated the associationExpand

Polymorphisms and Mutations in vWF and ADAMTS13 Genes and Their Correlation With Plasma Levels of FVIII and vWF in Patients With Deep Venous Thrombosis
Background: Increased levels of factor VIII (FVIII) are a prevalent and independent risk factor for deep venous thrombosis (DVT) and are affected by von Willebrand factor (vWF) levels. Design andExpand

Study of hemostasis in pediatric patients with portal vein thrombosis.
We describe the behavior of hemostatic variables in children with portal vein thrombosis (PVT) and in a control pediatric population. Hereditary protein C (PC) or protein S (PS) deficiency was not aExpand
