There is evidence that most forms of ischaemic stroke (IS) result from synergistic effects of the modifiable predisposing factors and multiple genes. In the present work, we report results of case-control study of IS association with apolipoprotein E gene (APOE) (promoter and coding polymorphisms) and lipoprotein lipase gene (LPL) (presence/absence of a(More)
Carriage frequencies of alleles and genotypes of 10 functionally important single nucleotide polymorphisms that are located in genes FGA, FGB, APOE, LPL, ACE and CMA1 were analyzed in the ischemic stroke (IS) patients of Russian ethnic descent and in the control group of the same ethnic descent and of similar gender and age. Comparison between patients and(More)
The frequencies of alleles and genotypes for ten functionally significant single-nucleotide polymorphisms were determined in the FGA, FGB, APOE, LPL, ACE, and CMA1 genes for Russian ischemic stroke (IS) patients and for a control group of Russians similar in gender and age distribution. The groups showed no significant differences in the frequencies of(More)
To determine whether primary fibroblasts producing latent transforming growth factor beta1 (TGF-beta1) are capable of down-regulating experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis (EAE), a retroviral vector TGF-beta1-pBabe-neo (-5'UTR) was used for efficient gene transfer into primary skin fibroblasts of DA rats. After heat activation, conditioned medium from(More)
Ischemic stroke (IS) is the main form of acute cerebral circulatory disorders and one of the leading causes of lethality and disability all over the world, including Russia [1]. IS is a multifactorial, polygenic disease for which a variety of etiological and pathogenetic mechanisms have been found [2]. Arterial hypertension (AH), the most prevalent chronic(More)
We examined an association of the C-148T beta-fibrinogen gene polymorphism with fibrinogen level and platelet aggregation in patients with ischemic stroke and in people with vascular risk factors but no ischemic stroke. Among stroke patients, carriers of an -148T allele had significantly higher plasma fibrinogen level and platelet aggregation to(More)
