Abstract

Endothelial cell dysfunction has previously been demonstrated in Behcet's disease which has vasculitic features. In this study we investigated antiendothelial cell antibodies (AECA)and von Willebrand factor antigen (vWF) levels in patients with Behcet's disease. In vitro effects of patient sera on endothelial cell proliferation were also evaluated.
