IL-1RN and IL-1B gene polymorphisms and cerebral hemorrhagic events after traumatic brain injury
Objective: To investigate the association of (variable number tandem repeat) interleukin (IL) 1RN and (-511) IL-1B gene polymorphisms with brain hemorrhagic events after traumatic brain injury (TBI). Methods: Data from ...
Effect of angiotensin-converting enzyme tag single nucleotide polymorphisms on the outcome of patients with traumatic brain injury
Background Genetic variants appear to influence, at least to some degree, the extent of brain injury and the clinical outcome of patients who have sustained a traumatic brain injury (TBI). Angiotensin-converting enzyme ...
Angiotensin-converting enzyme tag single nucleotide polymorphisms in patients with intracerebral hemorrhage
Objectives Studies investigating the association between angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) insertion/deletion (I/D) polymorphism and the risk of intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) have provided conflicting results. Moreover, ...
AQP4 Tag Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms in Patients with Traumatic Brain Injury
Accumulating evidence suggests that the extent of brain injury and the clinical outcome after traumatic brain injury (TBI) are modulated, to some degree, by genetic variants. Aquaporin-4 (AQP4) is the predominant water ...
Alpha-1 antichymotrypsin gene signal peptide A/T polymorphism and primary intracerebral hemorrhage
Background/Aims: Alpha-1 antichymotrypsin (ACT), a serine proteinase inhibitor, has been implicated in vascular pathology. The TT genotype of the ACT signal peptide A/T polymorphism has been reported to confer susceptibility ...
