Özet

Background: Macrophage migration inhibitory factor (MIF) is a pleiotrophic lymphocyte and macrophage cytokine; it is likely to play an important role in innate immunity. Its expression was increased in several inflammatory diseases, and MIF gene polymorphisms have an effect on disease outcome and response to glucocorticoid treatment.
