Özet

Objectives. To analyse the most common MEFV (Mediterranean fever gene) mutations and polymorphisms in an elderly population free of chronic inflammatory disease (n=764), and explore possible associations between hsCRP (high sensitive C-reactive protein) and RF (rheumatoid factor) levels with MEFV mutations and polymorphisms.
