The discovery of a mutant gene, could be the answer to reducing the risk of a stroke and preventing disability, scientists have said.
The discovery of the association between this genetic variant and stroke identifies a new target for potential treatments which could help reduce the risk of stroke in the future.
It is also significant that no association was found with small vessel disease, as this suggests that stroke sub-types involve different genetic mechanisms which emphasises the need for individualised treatments.
