Abstract

Objective: The identification of new genetic-associated risk factor of ischemic stroke could improves strategies for stroke prevention. This study aims to identify insulin receptor substrate 1 (IRS-1) gene polymorphism Gly972Arg as the risk factor for ischemic stroke among Indonesian subjects. The case-control study was conducted by matching the gender and race on 85 cases of patients with ischemic stroke and 86 healthy non-stroke control subjects. Ischemic stroke was established by the complete neurology examination and brain computed tomography scan or magnetic resonance imaging. Polymerase chain reaction-Restriction Fragment Length Polymorphism was performed to analyze IRS-1 gene Gly972Arg genotype. Results: There were 85 ischemic stroke cases and 86 control subjects. The distribution of nucleotide IRS-1 gene polymorphism Gly972Arg in the ischemic stroke vs health controls for GG were 32.2% vs 41.5%, for GR were 16% vs 7.6%, and for RR were 0.5% vs 1.9%. IRS-1 gene polymorphism Gly972Arg was found as significant risk factor for ischemic stroke [odds ratio of 2.6 (1.27-5.27); CI 95%, p = 0.008]. Conclusively, the IRS-1 gene polymorphism Gly972Arg should be considered as an important factor in the prevention and treatment of ischemic stroke.
