BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE The majority of genome-wide association studies (GWAS) of stroke have focused on European-ancestry populations; however, none has been conducted in African Americans, despite the disproportionately high burden of stroke in this population. The Consortium of Minority Population Genome-Wide Association Studies of Stroke (COMPASS) was established to identify stroke susceptibility loci in minority populations. METHODS Using METAL, we conducted meta-analyses of GWAS in 14… CONTINUE READING
