Exploration of a hypothesized independent association of a common 9p21.3 gene variant and ischemic stroke in patients with and without angiographic coronary artery disease.


BACKGROUND Single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) at the chromosome 9p21.3 locus are associated with coronary artery disease (CAD). An association of this genomic region with ischemic stroke independent of its effect on CAD could suggest an additional, stroke-specific pathophysiological relationship. METHODS Medical record review was used to identify 548… (More)
