    Background: Brain arteriovenous malformations (BAVMs) are formed by hypertrophied arterial vessels (afferents, feeders), a large number of arteriovenous shunts which become tangled to form a body (nidus) of malformation, which then expands draining proximal veins. The aim of this study was a replication of single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) rs11672433 association with BAVM development with the subsequent meta-analysis of published data. Methods: A total of 252 Russian patients with brain BAVMs and 480 control subjects were included in the present study. Genotyping was performed using real-time polymerase chain reaction with competitive hydrolysis probes. Results: In our case-control study, we found no significant association with brain arteriovenous malformation for the SNP rs11672433 of ANGPTL4 gene (odds ratio .82, 95% confidence interval = .57-1.17 P value = .27) as well as in meta-analysis (odds ratio 1.18, 95% confidence interval = .81-1.73, P value = .39). Conclusions: Our data showed that SNP rs11672433 was not associated with the BAVM Russian population and the following meta-analysis did not detect an association in total. Thus, in spite of the fact that ANGPTL4 (protein) participates in the angiogenesis regulation processes, we consider that SNP rs11672433, a high-frequency locus in the ANGPTL4 gene, does not influence the predisposition to BAVM or its effect is too small to be detected in the present size sample set.
