Genetic polymorphisms of heat shock protein 70-kD (HSP70) gene family have recently been hypothesized to be risk factors for cerebral ischemia. However, no prospective epidemiological data evaluating this gene family are available. The present investigation was conducted to examine the possible associations between the HSP70-1 nucleotide 190. HSP70-2 nucleotide 1267, and HSP70-hom nucleotide 2437 polymorphisms and the incidence of stroke in a large cohort of initially healthy men. 14916… CONTINUE READING
