Abstract

Objective: To determine the serum Dickkopf-related protein 1 (Dkk-1) and sclerostin levels, and their relationship to structural damage and disease activity in patients with ankylosing spondylitis (AS), as well as to compare the serum Dldc-1 and sclerostin levels in patients receiving and not receiving anti-TNF-alpha treatment.
