Lipoprotein lipase (LPL) plays an important role in lipid metabolism by hydrolyzing triglycerides in chylomicrons and very low density lipoproteins. An increasing number of studies have suggested an association of LPL gene variants with the risk of cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases. The aim of this study was to test whether HindIII polymorphism of LPL gene is associated with ischemic stroke and its subtypes as well as plasma lipid levels in a South Indian population from Andhra… CONTINUE READING
