Red cell distribution width (RDW) has been proposed as an early prognosis marker with increased mortality in variety of pathophysiological conditions. We hypothesized that elevated RDW could be used in judging the severity of acute pancreatitis (AP). We retrospectively and prospectively studied 545 and 72 AP patients, who were admitted to the Shanghai Tenth People's Hospital of Tongji University, respectively. Compared with mild acute pancreatitis, significantly higher RDW was observed in patients with moderately severe acute pancreatitis and sever acute pancreatitis (14...

BACKGROUND: Red cell distribution width (RDW) is an emerging marker of inflammation and a predictor of high cardiovascular morbidity and mortality as well as all-cause mortality. A previous cross-sectional study showed that RDW was associated with microalbuminuria, an indicator of target organ damage. However, the longitudinal association of RDW and development of albuminuria is not known. METHODS: We analyzed 83,040 participants without chronic kidney disease (CKD) at baseline who underwent two health check-ups at a 4-year interval during 2005 to 2014...

BACKGROUND: Red cell distribution width (RDW) is a cardiac marker for risk stratification and prognostic evaluation of coronary artery disease (CAD); however, the underlying mechanism remains unclear. Erythropoietin (EPO), a crucial factor affecting erythropoiesis, has been reported to be a protective molecule regulating the process of myocardial ischemia and relevant damage. No study has as yet reported the relationship between RDW and endogenous EPO in CAD patients. This cross-sectional study aimed to establish the association between endogenous EPO levels and increases in RDW in CAD patients...

Neuroblastoma (NB) is a pediatric tumor presenting at diagnosis either as localized or metastatic disease, which mainly involves the bone marrow (BM). The physical occupancy of BM space by metastatic NB cells has been held responsible for impairment of BM function. Here, we investigated whether localized or metastatic NB may alter hematopoietic lineages' maturation and release of mature cells in the periphery, through gene expression profiling, analysis of BM smears, cell blood count and flow cytometry analysis...

Prompt discharge after laparoscopic appendectomy (LA) is a marker of quality of care, fiscally desirable and feasible in select patients. Patients over 30 comprise a more heterogeneous cohort known to experience worse outcomes after LA. We aimed to identify easily available preoperative risk factors portending a postoperative length of stay ≥2 days among patients above age 30. In this investigation, 296 included patients from a single institution who underwent LA for acute appendicitis from 2010 to 2014 were retrospectively reviewed for preoperative demographics, laboratory studies, comorbidities, presentation characteristics, radiographic finding, and other rationally selected factors for association with postoperative length of stay ≥2 days...

Anemia is a widespread public health problem with 1/4 ~1/3 of the world's population being affected. In Southeast Asia, Thalassemia trait (TT) and iron deficiency anemia (IDA) are the two most common anemia types and can have a serious impact on quality of life. IDA patients can be treated with iron supplementation, yet TT patients have diminished capacity to process iron. Therefore, distinguishing between types of anemia is essential for effective diagnosis and treatment. Here, we present two advances towards low-cost screening for anemia...

Although platelet to lymphocyte ratio (PLR) and red cell distribution width (RDW) have been reported as good predictors for survival outcomes in various cancers, there is limited data supporting these as reliable predictors in oral cancer. This study thus aimed to assess the prognostic value of PLR and RDW markers in predicting survival and recurrence rates in patients with oral cancer. The records of 374 oral cancer patients treated with curative intent over a 7-year period (2009-2015) were reviewed. Survival and recurrence outcomes were compared between those with low and high PLR (≤135 vs...
