The score's developers also suggest that current guidelines for stroke prevention may not be sufficient for individuals at higher genomic risk for the condition.

Individuals with high genetic susceptibility to heart disease but good sleep habits appeared less likely to develop disease than those with poor sleep patterns.

The company aims to repurpose drugs by translating the mechanisms that allow hibernating animals to withstand the stresses of extended sleep.

The firm is using a microarray-based platform as part of a laboratory-based test to diagnose different types of stroke from blood samples.

The variant especially increases stroke risk among childhood cancer survivors who received an intermediate dose of radiation.

Better Recovery

A University of California, Los Angeles-led team has found turning off the CCR5 gene could improve recovery after a stroke, according to Scientific American.

In PNAS this week: approach for analyzing the expression of endogenous retroviruses, circular RNAs that influence host-virus interactions, and more.

Data for nearly 306,500 individuals revealed the impact of independent lifestyle and genetic factors on stroke risk over roughly seven years of follow up.

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.
