BACKGROUND: Hypertension (HTN) is a risk factor for stroke, renal failure, and cardiovascular disease. The association between biochemical and hematological parameters with high blood pressure may provide a more precise approach to risk prediction conferred by HTN in these patients. OBJECTIVE: The aim of current study was to explore whether biochemical and hematological parameters are associated with HTN in a cohort study with a 7-year follow-up. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A total of 9808 individuals were enrolled and recruited as part of the Mashhad Stroke and Heart Atherosclerotic Disorders (MASHAD) cohort study, and biochemical and hematological factors were measured in all subjects...

PURPOSE: Red cell distribution width (RDW), expressed in femtoliters (fl), is a measure of the variation in the size of circulating erythrocytes and is often expressed as a direct measurement of the width of the distribution. We aim to observe the mean value of red cell distribution width (RDW) in hypertensive patients. Increased RDW can be used as a tool for early diagnosis, as an inflammatory marker, and a mortality indicator in hypertensive patients due to its close relation to inflammation...

BACKGROUND: Neutrophil/lymphocyte ratio (NLR) and red cell distribution width (RDW) may be associated with the onset of arrhythmias in adults, thus underlining a possible inflammatory etiology. Paroxysmal supraventricular tachycardia (SVT) is the most frequent pathological tachycardia in childhood. AIMS: To verify NLR and RDW levels in a group of children (<1 year) affected by SVT with a structurally normal heart and without fever nor inflammatory diseases; to compare NLR and RDW before and after SVT resolution, to verify whether the latter was related with the reduction in inflammatory state; to identify -in SVT subtypes caused by a re-entry mechanism- an NLR and RDW cut-off point beyond which adenosine was ineffective in preventing SVT recurrence...

BACKGROUND: Middle- and long-term biological variation data for hematological parameters have been reported in the literature. Within-day 24-h variability profiles for hematological parameters are currently lacking. However, comprehensive hour-to-hour variability data are critical to detect diurnal cyclical rhythms, and to take into account the 'time of sample collection' as a possible determinant of natural fluctuation. In this study, we assessed 24-h variation profiles for 20 hematological parameters...

Red blood cell distribution width (RDW), a parameter that used to differentiate the type of anemia for several decades, recent studies suggest it was a prognostic factor in various types of cancer patients. However, the prognostic value of RDW in cancer patients remains controversial. Here, we performed a meta-analysis and systematic review to evaluate the prognostic value of RDW in cancer patients. Relevant studies were picked out from the databases of Web of Science, Embase, Pubmed and Cochrane Library. A total of 16 papers with 4267 patients were included in this meta-analysis, and the combined results indicated that elevated RDW was associated with poor over survival (OS) (HR = 1...
