Abstract

Background Antioxidants are responsible for detoxification of harmful effects of reactive oxygen species. Genetic factors may influence antioxidant activity as a result of polymorphisms on antioxidant enzymes. These polymorphisms can be risk in ischemic stroke (IS) risk. IS is a disorder with genetic and environmental factors contributing to overall risk. Although a few studies have been conducted, there have been no reports on catalase (CAT C262T), manganese superoxide dismutase (MnSOD Ala16Val) and glutathione peroxidase 1 (GPX1 Pro198Leu) gene polymorphisms and IS risk.
