Genetic and Environmental Risk Factors for Hemorrhagic Stroke-GERFHS III "GERFHS-III"

Active, not recruiting

Phase N/A Results N/A

Trial Description

The purpose of this study is to find risk factors for hemorrhagic stroke, specifically intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH).

Conditions

Trial Design

  • Observation: Case Control
  • Perspective: Prospective
  • Sampling: Non-Probability Sample

Trial Population

This study will be limited to physician-reviewed cases of people who have had a hemorrhagic stroke, specifically an intracerebral hemorrhage, and live within a 100 mile radius of the University of Cincinnati.

Patient Involvement

This study will be limited to physician-reviewed cases of people who have had a hemorrhagic stroke, specifically an intracerebral hemorrhage, and live within a 100 mile radius of the University of Cincinnati and healthy volunteers who are randomly identified in the same 100 mile radius of the University of Cincinnati and have not had a hemorrhagic stroke. Participants will need to have blood samples obtained for DNA.

Outcomes

Type Measure Time Frame Safety Issue
Primary The analysis of the presence of specific genetic markers associated with hemorrhagic stroke versus the control group.
Secondary Analysis of risk factors such as age, race, gender, current smoking, heavy alcohol use, use of anticoagulants, diabetes, hemorrhagic stroke family history, hypertension, etc. in people with hemorrhagic stroke versus the control group.

Biospecimen Retention:Samples With DNA - whole blood
