Numerous factors have been reported to influence the pathogenesis of stroke. The risks arising from variations in genes between individuals have not been explored. The angiotensin 1-converting enzyme gene is a candidate gene for atherosclerotic related disease. In this work we studied the frequency of the deletion allele D and the polymorphism DD within the gene encoding angiotensin 1-converting enzyme in stroke patients compared with controls to determine if this deletion polymorphism was a… CONTINUE READING
