Abstract

Background. The prognosis of traumatic brain injury is quite variable and not fully explained by the known factors. This study is to examine if the polymorphism of apolipoprotein E (apoE) influences the outcome of traumatic brain injury. Methods. Over a period of twelve months, we prospectively studied 100 patients who sustained traumatic brain injuries and were admitted to our neurosurgical unit. Findings. Nineteen patients were apoE4(+) and 81 patients were apoE4(-). There was no significant difference between apoE4(+) and apoE4(-) groups in the cause of injury (p = 0.288), type of brain injury (p = 0.983) and choice of treatment (p = 0.88). The proportion of patients with a lower GCS (
