Background and purpose:  The aim of this study was to investigate whether genetic variation at the third complement component (C3) locus is associated with ischaemic stroke (IS). Methods:  The Sahlgrenska Academy Study on Ischaemic Stroke comprises 844 patients with IS, and 668 healthy controls. Sixteen SNPs were analyzed. Results:  Two SNPs, rs2277984 and rs3745565, showed a significant association with overall IS. The SNP rs2277984 also showed association with the IS subtype cryptogenic stroke. These associations were independent of hypertension, diabetes, and smoking. The independent association between rs3745565 and overall IS withstands correction for multiple testing. Conclusion:  In this sample of patients with IS, genetic variation in C3 is associated with IS.
