Results from one study suggested that people who carry either the e2 or e4 allele of the apolipoprotein E (apo E) gene have an elevated risk for lobar intracerebral hemorrhage. Findings from the second study suggested that people who carry the B allele of the paraoxonase gene have a twofold increased risk of early-onset arterial is-chemic stroke, which strikes people aged 15-45.
