BACKGROUND Interleukin 1 (IL-1) is a proinflammatory cytokine involved in atherogenesis and thrombosis. The aim of this study was to investigate the association between the IL-1beta gene polymorphism (-511) and the risk of large vessel disease (LVD) stroke, small vessel disease (SVD) stroke and cardioembolic (CE) stroke. METHODS We genotyped 115 patients with LVD stroke and 194 matched controls, 122 patients with SVD stroke and 227 controls and 221 patients with CE stroke and 219 controls… CONTINUE READING
