BACKGROUND Anti-inflammatory interleukin-10 (IL-10) cytokine and its genetic variations may play an important role in the pathogenesis of various human diseases including stroke. OBJECTIVE The aim of this present case-control study was to determine the association between IL-10 -1082G/A (rs1800896) gene polymorphism and risk of stroke in the North Indian(More)
BACKGROUND Polymorphisms of G174C and C572G in the interleukin-6 (IL-6) promoter gene can affect both transcription and secretion of IL-6 and may be involved in inflammation related to and pathogenesis of ischemic stroke (IS). Whether these IL-6 gene polymorphisms are risk factors for IS or not, remains controversial. OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was(More)
BACKGROUND Genetic factors may play a role in the susceptibility of Ischemic stroke (IS). Previous studies have shown that Tumour necrosis factor-α (TNF-α) gene polymorphisms were associated with the risk of IS in multiple ethnicities. The present case-control study tested the hypothesis that genetic polymorphisms of the TNF-α gene may affect the risk of IS(More)
BACKGROUND Fragile X-associated Tremor/Ataxia syndrome (FXTAS) is a clinically heterogeneous disorder characterized predominantly by tremor, followed by late onset gait ataxia, autonomic dysfunction and/or cognitive impairment. We aimed to screen FMR1-CGG repeats in our cohort of progressive late-onset cerebellar ataxia/tremor cohort to characterize the(More)
Pathogenic expansion of a hexanucleotide repeat in C9orf72 is associated with ~30% of familial ALS and ~7% of sporadic ALS patients amongst different populations. This repeat expansion was screened in 75 ALS patients and 115 healthy individuals from North India. On analysis by repeat-primed PCR, pathogenic expansion was not observed either in ALS patients(More)
Spinocerebellar ataxia type 7 (SCA7) is a rare neurogenetic disorder caused by highly unstable CAG repeat expansion mutation in coding region of SCA7. We aimed to understand the effect of diverse ATXN7 cis-element in correlation with CAG expansion mutation of SCA7. We initially performed an analysis to identify the haplotype background of CAG expanded(More)
