Underlying genetics, marker for stroke, cardiovascular disease discovered

Lately the scientists working the genomes have found a genetic variant that could be linked to increased risk for stroke. Further they have also brought forward the new details about the important metabolic pathway that might play a very significant role in controlling many common diseases. These big findings might help to find new clues to the underlying genetic and biochemical influences hence helpful in the growth and finding solutions for stroke and cardiovascular disease. This is certainly a big development and will help in finding solutions various threatening diseases. The findings are published in scientific journal PLoS Genetics. A co-researcher, Stephen R. Williams, Ph.D., a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Virginia Cardiovascular Research Center and the University of Virginia Center for Public Health Genomics, Charlottesville explains, “Our findings have the potential to identify new targets in the prevention and treatment of stroke, cardiovascular disease and many other common diseases.”
