Abstract

Objective. To assess the association of polymorphisms of the IL-6 receptor gene (+24013A/G:Ala31Ala; +48892 A/C: Asp358Ala), the IL-8 receptor gene (+2607G/C:Ser/Thr IL-8RA), and TNF-alpha 238 (G/A) single nucleotide polymorphism, (SNP) with Behcet's disease in patients of German or Turkish origin.
