BACKGROUND Controversies exist concerning the association between serum lipids and ischemic stroke. OBJECTIVE To investigate the relationship between serum lipid, apolipoprotein E (apoE) genotype and risk of ischemic stroke. METHODS We measured the concentrations of serum lipids, lipoprotein (a) [Lp(a)], and apoE genotype, as well as the distribution of other potential risk factors, in 90 pairs of age- and sex-matched ischemic stroke patients and stroke-free controls. RESULTS The… CONTINUE READING
