The Role of Mean Platelet Volume as an Inflammatory Marker in Children with Allergic Rhinitis

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2015.266
Synopsis: 
Although platelets are known to participate actively in both allergic and non-allergic types of inflammation, the mean platelet volume cannot be used as an indicator of inflammation in children with allergic rhinitis.

 ABSTRACT

Objective: Mean platelet volume (MPV) is a potential marker of platelet reactivity. Increased MPV levels are shown to be the predictor of inflammation. The aim of this study was to investigate whether MPV is an inflammatory indicator in children with allergic rhinitis.
