Interleukin-10 haplotypes are not associated with acute cerebral ischemia or high-risk transcranial Doppler in a newborn cohort of 395 children with sickle cell anemia

Abstract

BACKGROUND The etiology of stroke, a severe complication of sickle cell anemia, involves inflammatory processes. However, the pathogenetic mechanisms are unknown. The aim of this study was to evaluate the influence of interleukin-10 polymorphisms and haplotypes on the risk of acute cerebral ischemia and high-risk transcranial Doppler in 395 children with… (More)
