Hemorrhagic stroke cases
People who have had a hemorrhagic stroke, specifically an intracerebral hemorrhage, and live within a 100 mile radius of the University of Cincinnati.
Healthy Control Subjects
Healthy volunteers who are randomly identified in the same 100 mile radius of the University of Cincinnati and have not had a hemorrhagic stroke.
- The analysis of the presence of specific genetic markers associated with hemorrhagic stroke versus the control group. [ Time Frame: Ongoing to be completed at the end of June 2013. ]Identification of specific genetic markers for each subject will be measured by gene assay using the Affymetrix chip. We are looking for SNPs that persist after controlling for traditional risk factors such as hypertension, smoking exposure, diabetes, alcohol use, anticoagulant use, hypercholesterolemia and APOE alleles.
- Analysis of risk factors such as age, race, gender, current smoking, heavy alcohol use, use of anticoagulants, diabetes, hemorrhagic stroke family history, hypertension, etc. in people with hemorrhagic stroke versus the control group. [ Time Frame: Ongoing to be completed at the end of June 2013. ]Traditional risk factors will be identified through self report during interview and by hospital chart notes for the case subjects. Identification of the APOE alleles for each subject will be done on their genetic sample.
