Özet

Objectives. Anti-Saccharomyces cerevisiae antibodies (ASCA) are found in 50-60% of patients with Crohns disease. Increased as well as normal levels have been reported in Behcet's syndrome (BS). We reassessed the level of IgG and IgA ASCA antibodies in BS and in a group of diseased and healthy Controls.
