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.

Influence of Red Blood Cell Distribution Width on Long-term Prognosis of Percutaneous Coronary Intervention for Patients with Non-ST Segment Elevation Acute Coronary Syndrome

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2015.019
Pages:

Synopsis: 
This study demonstrated that high red blood cell distribution width in postoperative percutaneous coronary interventional was an independent predictor factor influencing the mortality.
ABSTRACT
 
Objective: The aim of this study was to investigate the influence of red blood cell distribution width (RDW) on the long-term prognosis of percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) for patients with non-ST-segment elevation acute coronary syndrome (NSTEACS).
