BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES Evidence from experimental and genetic studies suggest the existence of a potential link between the polymorphisms of human leukocyte antigen class II gene (HLA-DR) and ischemic stroke. This study addressed the association of HLA-DR gene with atherosclerotic cerebral infarction (ACI) in a North Chinese Han population. MATERIAL AND METHODS The genotyping of HLA-DRB1 was determined by standard techniques based on polymerase chain reaction and sequence-specific… CONTINUE READING
