Abstract

Objective: In this study, the primary objective was to compare CD 74 antigen levels between patients with ankylosing spondylitis (AS) and healthy controls. The secondary objective was to investigate the distribution of Macrophage Migration Inhibitory Factor (MIF) 173 G/C polymorphisms in AS patients and a control group. Finally, it was also aimed to reveal the presence of a relationship between CD 74 antigen levels and MIF 173 G/C polymorphism.
