Background: Fast diagnosing ischemic stroke (IS) is a critical issue in clinical studies, as it allows more effective therapy and stops the progression of IS. The blood level of circular RNAs (CircRNAs) after stroke may be a rapid diagnostic marker.

Methods: In this study, the blood level of circRNAs was evaluated using a real-time polymerase chain reaction (PCR). We used logistic and linear regression analysis to assess the potential of circRNAs levels with the risk of IS.

Results: circRNA DLG associated protein 4 (CircDLGAP4) was decreased in patients compared with controls, and logistic regression showed its expression negatively associated with IS risk. The expression level of human genome version 38_Circular_0008980 (hg38_circ_0008980) was reduced significantly in patients with small vessel disease (SVD), and the linear regression analysis showed a negative relationship between hg38_circ_0008980 expressions with SVD subtype. hg38_circ_0008980 expression relative to controls showed a significant association with IS risk.

Conclusions: Taken together, we found a significant decrease in the level of hg38_circ_0008980 after IS; it may act as a novel circRNA in IS pathophysiology with a positive correlation with stroke severity.
