Abstract

Objective. Behcet's disease (BD) is a systemic disorder characterised by vasculitis. Endothelial progenitor cells are derived front the bone marrow and contribute to new vessel formation. The aim of this study was to investigate the level of endothelial progenitor cells in BD and BD-associated conditions.
