Özet

Objective, Familial Mediterranean fever (FMF) is a disease of unknown etiology characterized by recurrent attacks of polyserositis (peritonitis, pleuritis, and arthritis) and fever. We measured levels of soluble intercellular adhesion molecule 1 (sICAM-1) and interleukin 8 (IL-8), which are important mediators in leukocyte-endothelial adhesion and leukocyte accumulation in tissues.
