Abstract

Behcet's disease (BD) is a chronic inflammatory vasculitis presenting with flares and silent periods usually between 15 and 40 years of age. The aim of this study was to evaluate the possible association between Rho-kinase 1 (ROCK1) gene polymorphisms and patients with BD in a Turkish population.
