Introduction: Chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) is one of the most common leukemias in developed countries. Multiple myeloma (MM), a clonal plasma cell disease, is the second most prevalent hematological cancer. Interleukin-17 (IL-17) can facilitate the secretion of numerous proinflammatory cytokines. The goal of the present study was to evaluate the effect of IL-17F rs763780 on CLL/MM susceptibility in a Turkish cohort.
