Genetic And Environmental Risk Factors For Hemorrhagic Stroke
Posted Date: Jan 4, 2018
- Investigator: Daniel Woo
- Type of Study: Observational/Survey
The purpose of this research study is to determine the significant medical, environmental and genetic risk factors and causes of stroke. Some of this information is contained in genes. Genes are made up of DNA and they are passed from parent to child. Genes carry unique information about the makeup of your body. Genes influencing blood pressure, blood vessel walls, clotting and other factors that may increase the risk of developing a hemorrhagic stroke and new treatments that affect these may be developed to prevent stroke.
You Are Being Asked To Be In This Study Because You Have Been Diagnosed As Having Suffered A Hemorrhagic Stroke. A Hemorrhagic Stroke Occurs When A Blood Vessel Inside The Brain Ruptures And Leaks Blood Into Surrounding Brain Tissue (Intracerebral Hemorrhage) And/Or Into The Space Surrounding The Brain (Subarachnoid Hemorrhage).
