An increased systemic and local inflammation plays a key role in the pathophysiology of acute coronary syndrome (ACS). This review will discuss the role of hematological indices: white blood cells (WBC), neutrophil to lymphocyte ratio (NLR), red cell distribution width (RDW), and platelet indices, that is, platelet to lymphocyte ratio (PLR), mean platelet volume (MPV), and platelet distribution width (PDW) in the case of ACS. In recent years, a strong interest has been drawn to these indices, given that they may provide independent information on pathophysiology, risk stratification, and optimal management...

BACKGROUND: Red blood cells distribution width (RDW) predicts survival in cardiovascular diseases. Little is known about the variability of RDW level over time among patients with pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) and chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension (CTEPH). To our knowledge, RDW has never been analysed as a marker of response to specific treatment. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We retrospectively analysed 77 patients for: i) RDW measured during the last hospitalisation before death or during the last follow-up (RDWlast); ii) mean RDW from all hospitalisations during the entire follow-up of the patient (RDWmean); iii) maximum RDW of all hospitalisations of each patient (RDWmax)...

Although 85% of patients with univentricular heart after Fontan procedure survive twenty years after operation, the procedure alone seems to be an inadequate treatment as a permanent clinical solution. Patients with a "Fontan physiology" additionally have to face a various extra-cardiac complications, including thyroid, liver and kidney dysfunction, which are not only potentially life-threatening, but also can potentiate the circulatory insufficiency. AIM: The aim of the study was to assess a multiorgan dysfunction in adult patients after Fontan operation in long term follow-up and compare to healthy controls...

BACKGROUND It is now widely acknowledged that chronic inflammation is closely associated with the process of cancer development. As a simple noninvasive blood-based test, hematological parameters in the routine blood test have been considered as inflammation markers. We aimed to evaluate platelet count (PC), red blood cell distribution width (RDW), white blood cell count (WBC), mean platelet volume (MPV), number of neutrophils/lymphocytes ratio (NLR), and platelet count/lymphocytes ratio (PLR) as surrogate inflammatory markers in breast cancer (BC) patients, and we compared these to those in healthy individuals...

Six surfactant-like peptides with the same amino acid composition but different primary sequences are designed, including G3A3V3I3K3, K3I3V3A3G3, I3V3A3G3K3, K3G3A3V3I3, V3G3I3A3K3, and K3A3I3G3V3. These peptides form antiparallel β-sheets during self-assembly. Because the constituent residues have different side chain size and hydrophobicity, sequence changes adjust group distribution and hydrophobicity on the two sides of a given β-sheet. This consequently tunes the binding energy of the side-to-side pairing conformations and leads to different self-assembled structures...

BACKGROUND: Red cell distribution width (RDW) is a measure of the size variation of erythrocytes. Its prognostic value has been described in a variety of cardiac and non-cardiac diseases. Implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) is useful in preventing sudden cardiac death in high risk patients, but many of these patients continue to survive without needing ICD therapy. We sought to examine whether RDW with its prognostic values, can benefit in risk stratification of patients with ICD by predicting death and ICD therapy, and thus help in selection of patients who will benefit the most from ICD, and minimizing its implantation in others at low risk of death and arrhythmias...
