5,10-Methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase C677T gene polymorphism in Behcet's patients with or without ocular involvement.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Increased serum levels of homocysteine (Hcy) have been reported in patients with Behçet's disease (BD) with an established risk factor for vascular involvement. Recently, the authors demonstrated that elevated Hcy levels are associated with ocular involvement in such patients. On the other hand, elevated levels of Hcy can result from genetic… (More)
