Özet

BACKGROUND. Interleukin-18 (IL-18) is a novel immunoregulatory cytokine that was known previously as interferon-gamma-inducing factor. IL-18 levels can be used as a serum indicator for monitoring the clinical course of patients with hematologic malignancies and gastric carcinoma. Nitric oxide (NO) is a pleiotropic molecule that participates in the multistep processing of carcinogenesis.
