Özet

Objective. Familial Mediterranean fever (FMF) is an autoinflammatory disease common in eastern Mediterranean populations. The most severe complication is the development of secondary amyloidosis. Toll-like receptor (TLR-2) plays a critical role in linking the recognition of microbes to immune activation. We investigated whether the Arg753Gln TLR2 polymorphism affected the development of secondary amyloidosis in patients with FMT.
