Using data from the UK Biobank, researchers explored relative contributions that genetics and lifestyle make to cardiovascular disease and diabetes risk.

Data from almost 19,500 individuals did not show clear ties between a heterozygous mutation in the HBB hemoglobin beta gene and ischemic stroke risk.

The researchers uncovered more than 20 new stroke-associated genetic loci, some of which are the targets of antithrombotic drugs.

A study led by Johns Hopkins describes a method for automating slow, inaccurate manual chart review when searching for signs of misdiagnosis.

The model aims to uncover stroke patients at high, medium, or low risk of cerebral amyloid angiopathy, which is linked to additional strokes or dementia.
