Burden of risk alleles for hypertension increases risk of intracerebral hemorrhage.

Stroke 2012 Nov; 43 (11): 2877-83, PMID: 22933587

Genetic variation influences risk of intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH). Hypertension (HTN) is a potent risk factor for ICH and several common genetic variants (single nucleotide polymorphisms [SNPs]) associated with blood pressure levels have been identified. We sought to determine whether the cumulative burden of blood pressure-related SNPs is associated with risk of ICH and pre-ICH diagnosis of HTN.
