Abstract

Objective: Some researchers have suggested that Epstein-Barr virus may play a role in the pathogenesis of laryngeal malignancies. In order to clarify the role of cytokines in this disease context, the current study aimed to determine the serum levels of cytokines in Epstein-Barr virus DNA positive patients with laryngeal carcinoma.
