Genetic and Environmental Risk Factors for Hemorrhagic Stroke (GERFHS)
|Study ID||Alternative Stable ID||Type|
GERFHS is a population-based, case-control study of hemorrhagic stroke in the Greater Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky region. Cases are recruited from within 50 miles of the University of Cincinnati and population-based controls are matched to cases by age (+/- 5 years), race and gender from the same population as cases. All study participants are of self-reported non-Hispanic Caucasian ethnicity and the data show consistency with the principal component projections. The current submission includes genome wide genotyping on a subset of these cases and controls.
