SNPwatch: Three New Genetic Variants Associated with Brain Aneurysm Identified

An aneurysm occurs when the wall of a blood vessel weakens and balloons outward, making the blood vessel abnormally large. The larger the vessel becomes, the greater the risk of rupture — a serious emergency. Often there are no symptoms of an aneurysm until a rupture occurs. Brain (also known as intracranial) ...
