Primary Outcome Measures:
  • positive screening of fabry disease [ Time Frame: past 5 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Estimated Enrollment: 1000
Study Start Date: May 2010
Estimated Primary Completion Date: December 2014 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Intervention Details:
    Other: blood test
    Dry blood spots (DBS) analysis of a- galactosidase-A activity will be used for male patients' diagnosis. Males and females with enzymatic activity bellow the test's cut-off will be further diagnosed by gene sequencing. Since females are heterozygote and may have high residual levels of active enzyme, female patients with a- galactosidase-A activity of 30% bellow averaged normal range will also be further diagnosed by gene sequencing as described before (8).

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years to 55 Years
Genders Eligible for Study:   Both
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

diagnosis of stoke or TIA Time period within last 5 years -

Exclusion Criteria:

Known diagnosis of stroke or index event due to trauma
