Abstract

Background/Aims: This study aimed to investigate polymorphisms in the genes responsible for encoding cytokines interleukin-6 (IL-6) (-572G/C) (rs1800796) and IL-17 (-197A/G) (rs2275913) in patients with celiac disease (CD). We further aimed to investigate the relationship between CD symptoms and histopathological findings and the relationship between these polymorphisms.
