Objective. Behcet's disease (BD) is a systemic inflammatory disease with unknown etiology. Studies have shown that some T helper (Th) 1-associated cytokines have role in the inflammation of BD. The CD4(+) Th cells can be differentiated into Th1, Th2, Th17 and Th22 secrete different cytokines to regulate immune system. In this study, cytokine secretion of Th subsets in BD was investigated.
