Introduction: Diabetic peripheral neuropathy is one of the commonest complications of diabetes. The soluble adhesion molecules, E-selectin and intracellular adhesion molecule (ICAM)-are indicators for endothelial activation. Recent studies demonstrated that these molecules are increased in patients with diabetes and diabetes-related complications. The present study was designed to investigate the possible association of two mutations, S128R in E-selectin and K469E in ICAM-1 with diabetic peripheral neuropathy (DPN) in Turkish population.
