BACKGROUND The association between polymorphism -1131T/C in the promoter region of apolipoprotein A5 (APOA5) and ischemic stroke and plasma triglyceride (TG) levels remains controversial. To better clarify the association between APOA5-1131T/C and risk of ischemic stroke and plasma TG levels, we performed a meta-analysis to examine the allele and genotype of APOA5-1131T/C polymorphism in ischemic stroke cases and controls. METHODS Based on the search of PubMed, Embase, MEDLINE, CNKI (National… CONTINUE READING
