Mediterranean fever gene mutations: correlation with cytotoxic T-lymphocyte-associated antigen 4 gene polymorphism.

Abstract

Mutations in the Mediterranean fever (MEFV) gene lead to familial Mediterranean fever (FMF), a pro-inflammatory state characterized by outbursts of inflammatory cytokines. The aims of this study were to identify the common mutations of MEFV gene in Egyptian patients with FMF, to study cytotoxic T lymphocyte associated antigen 4 (CTLA-4) gene polymorphism… (More)
