Simple Inflammatory Markers for the Early Diagnosis of Celiac Disease

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2017.225
Synopsis: 
In newly diagnosed Celiac Disease (CD), it was found that neutrophil/lymphocyte ratio (NLR) and platelet/lymphocyte ratio (PLR) were significantly higher, mean platelet volume, mean corpuscular haemoglobin concentration and red cell distribution width were significantly lower than in healthy group. Neutrophil/lymphocyte ratio, PLR and RDW may be early clues to the diagnosis of CD.

ABSTRACT

Objective: The aim is to compare the newly diagnosed Celiac and control groups in terms of inflammatory markers such as platelet/lymphocyte ratio (PLR) and neutrophil/lymphocyte ratio (NLR).

Methods: This retrospective study included 68 patients who were newly diagnosed with Celiac Disease (CD) and 30 healthy volunteers. Haemogram tests and C-reactive protein (CRP) measurements were obtained from the hospital records. Then, NLR and PLR were calculated.

Mean Platelet Volume and Red Cell Distribution Width in Acute Exacerbation of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2017.144
Synopsis: 
Mean platelet volume (MPV) and red cell distribution width were investigated in COPD as an indicator of inflammation. We found that MPV and RDW levels increased in COPD patients. Also, MPV may be related with respiratory function loss and hypoxia.

ABSTRACT

Aim: To evaluate the level of mean platelet volume (MPV) and red cell distribution width (RDW) in patients with acute exacerbation of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) and to investigate the relationship between MPV and RDW levels with pulmonary function test (PFT), right ventricle dysfunction (RVD), arterial blood gases (ABG) and inflammatory status.

The Editor

Sir,

We have previously reported that MPV is decreased in nasal polyp patients compared to control subjects. We are grateful to Erdur et al for precious criticism of this article. First of all, we agree with Erdur et al in terms of MPV has not been fully elucidated as an inflammatory marker in certain circumstances.

Platelet Count and Mean Platelet Volume: Supportive Markers in Differentiation of Tuberculosis and Sarcoidosis

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2016.011
Synopsis: 
Tuberculosis and sarcoidosis are two diseases showing histological and clinical similarities and the differential diagnosis of the two is still very challenging. In this study, platelet (PLT) count and mass platelet volume (MPV) were found to be supportive in the differentiation of tuberculosis and sarcoidosis.

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.

Clinical and Hematological Manifestations of Typhoid Fever in Children in Eastern Turkey

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2014.354
Pages: 
154–7
Synopsis: 
Typhoid fever is a common and widely distributed food-borne disease that is a global major public health problem. This study was undertaken in order to determine the clinical and haematological presentation of typhoid fever in children.

ABSTRACT

Objective: Typhoid fever can involve various organs, leading to a wide range of presentations: from uncomplicated to complicated typhoid fever. The haematological changes are common in typhoid fever and include anaemia, leucopaenia, thrombocytopaenia and bleeding diathesis. This study was undertaken in order to determine the clinical and haematological presentation of typhoid fever in children.

Can Mean Platelet Volume Be a Surrogate Marker of Inflammation in Rheumatic Diseases?

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2014.202
Pages: 
165–9
Synopsis: 
It has been suggested that low-level mean platelet volume (MPV) in humans may be related to secondary thrombosis due to inflammation. For this reason, MPV can be used as a marker showing inflammation in the body. In this study, we found a strong association between MPV and erythrocyte sedimentation rate and C-reactive protein in patients with rheumatic diseases. Thus, MPV may be used as a negative acute-phase reactant in rheumatic diseases.

ABSTRACT

Background: In humans, it has been suggested that low-level mean platelet volume (MPV) may be related to secondary thrombosis due to inflammation. For this reason, MPV can be used as a marker showing inflammation in the body.

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2012.284
Pages:

Synopsis: 
Mean platelet volume (MPV) is increased in diabetic patients. It is associated with the degree of glycaemic control. Moreover, MPV is higher in patients with diabetic retinopathy.

ABSTRACT

Objectives: To investigate the relationship between mean platelet volume (MPV) and glycometabolic indices, to compare MPV according to HbA1c levels, and to analyse the difference in MPV between patients with and without microvascular complications.
