To further confirm at the molecular level that neuronal apoptosis occurs in mesial temporal sclerosis (MTS), the main substrate of mesial temporal lobe epilepsy (MTLE), 24 resected sclerotic hippocampi from 24 patients with drug-resistant MTLE associated with MTS were studied microscopically, electronmicroscopically and immunohistochemically, with detection(More)
BACKGROUND Serine protease inhibitor member 3 of clade A (SERPINA3) has been shown as a risk factor for aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage in a Polish population. In the present study, the authors investigated the correlation between the rs4934 polymorphism of SERPINA3 and sporadic intracranial aneurysms in Chinese patients. METHODS The rs4934(More)
OBJECT The COL1A2 gene at 7q22.1 has been shown to be associated with familial intracranial aneurysms (IAs) in the Japanese population. In the present study, the authors investigated the correlation between the presence of the rs42524 polymorphism in COL1A2 and the occurrence of sporadic IAs in Chinese patients. METHODS The polymorphism rs42524 of the(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the association between polymorphisms in the gene encoding activin receptor-like kinase 1 (ACVRL1) with brain arteriovenous malformations (BAVMs) using a case-control study in a Chinese Han population, followed by a meta-analysis of the published literature. METHODS This study focused on the genotypic analysis of four single(More)
