Abstract OBJECTIVES: Despite the well-defined genetics of FMF, limited information is available regarding the regulation of inflammation by cytokines. DESIGN AND METHODS: The levels of systemic cytokines and other markers of inflammation in FMF patients and control were measured by ELISA and Cytometric Bead Array (CBA). RESULTS: In FMF attack the levels of IL-6, IL-10, IL-17, TGF-beta, CRP, and sIL-2R were significantly different from the norm and FMF remission. CONCLUSIONS: Inflammation in FMF involves Treg and Th17 lineages.
