Özet

Objectives: Multiple sclerosis is an inflammatory condition of the central nervous system whose etiology is influenced by immunologic, genetic, and environmental factors. Aim of the present study was to determine if any relation exists between IL-18-137C/G and -607C/A gene promoter polymorphisms on the individual susceptibility of multiple sclerosis and also to investigate the possible effect of IL-18 activity regarding this kind of polymorphism and MS.
