Background: Behcet's disease (BD) is a chronic inflammatory vasculitis characterized by endothelial dysfunction, elevated reactive oxygen species (ROS), and neutrophil hyperfunction production including acute attacks and remission periods. Ischemia modified albumin (IMA), advanced oxidation protein products (AOPP), prooxidants-antioxidants balance (PAB), and ferric reducing antioxidant power (FRAP) were evaluated in regard to their role in the pathogenesis of BD as well as their relation to clinical presentation, uveitis attacks and remission periods, and healthy volunteers.
