OBJECTIVE: Red cell distribution width (RDW) is associated with mortality in patients with community-acquired pneumonia (CAP). However, little is known about the effect of changes in RDW during treatment on mortality. Thus, the objective of this study was to evaluate the association between RDW changes and mortality in hospitalized patients with CAP. METHODS: Retrospective analyses were performed using medical records of patients hospitalized for CAP from April 2008 to February 2014...

BACKGROUND: Red blood cell distribution width (RDW) is a quantitative measurement of anisocytosis. RDW has prognostic value in humans with different cardiovascular and systemic disorders, but few studies have investigated this biomarker in dogs. OBJECTIVES: To compare the RDW in dogs with precapillary and postcapillary pulmonary hypertension (PH) and a control population of dogs and to correlate RDW with demographic, echocardiographic, and laboratory variables. ANIMALS: One hundred and twenty-seven client-owned dogs including 19 healthy dogs, 82 dogs with myxomatous mitral valve disease (50 dogs without PH and 32 dogs with postcapillary PH), and 26 dogs with precapillary PH...

BACKGROUND: Accumulating evidence suggests that increased red cell distribution width (RDW) and mean corpuscular volume (MCV) were both poor prognostic factors for patients with cardiovascular diseases. Recently, the multiplicative interaction between RDW and MCV has been observed for predicting mortality in elderly patients without anemia; however, the relationship between the product of RDW-MCV and hypertension-induced target organ damage (TOD) has not been evaluated. METHODS: We performed a cross-sectional study in 1115 hypertensive patients...

OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study was to assess the appropriateness of using combined cell index (CCI) in the assessment of iron stores in blood donors. This index is calculated by the formula: red blood cell distribution width (RDW) × 10(4) × mean corpuscular volume (MCV)(-1) × mean corpuscular haemoglobin (MCH)(-1) . BACKGROUND: Ferritin measurement is a reliable method for estimating iron stores in blood donors. The sensitivity of red blood cell (RBC) parameters of complete blood count in detecting non-anaemic iron deficiency is significantly lower...

OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the cellular and matrix effects of botulinum toxin type A (Botox) on mandibular condylar cartilage (MCC) and subchondral bone. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Botox (0.3 unit) was injected into the right masseter of 5-week-old transgenic mice (Col10a1-RFPcherry) at day 1. Left side masseter was used as intra-animal control. The following bone labels were intraperitoneally injected: calcein at day 7, alizarin red at day 14 and calcein at day 21. In addition, EdU was injected 48 and 24 hours before sacrifice...

BACKGROUND: RDW is an automatic value obtained with the blood count, and represents the erythrocytes dimension variation. OBJECTIVE: To evaluate in optimally medicated outpatients with heart failure with reduced ejection fraction (HFrEF) the RDW prognostic value regarding survival in a multivariable model including anemia and Nt-ProBNP. METHODS: 233 consecutive outpatients, LVEF <40%, clinically stable were followed-up for 3-years in an HF Unit...

BACKGROUND: In the elderly the most common cause of hospitalization and the leading cause of death is heart failure. AIM: The purpose was to determine prognostic factors in chronic heart failure (CHF) in octogenarians and nonagenarians. METHODS: The analysis included 197 consecutive patients older than 80 years old (mean age 83.63+3.01 years; 46.19% of men) hospitalized in 2010-2013 in the Department of Cardiology due to CHF. Sixty two parameters were investigated such as: age, gender, NYHA functional class, body mass index, blood pressure, other comorbidities, the parameters of the 12-lead resting ECG and the echocardiography, the results of basic laboratory tests and selected biomarkers, including N-terminal pro-B-type natriuretic peptide (NT-proBNP), high-sensitive troponin T (hs-TnT), high-sensitive C-reactive protein (hs-CRP)...

A microscopic model of the interfacial region is required to improve understanding of the role of local structure in bulk physical properties in metal organic framework-based polymer nanocomposites. A zeolitic imidazolate framework (ZIF-8)-based (loading 2-30 wt%) composite of poly vinyl alcohol (PVA) is studied as a model system to investigate the role of interfacial interaction in molecular packing, glass transition process and tensile properties. Attractive interfacial interaction between the surface of ZIF particles and PVA chains is established by Fourier transform infra red (FTIR) measurements...

BACKGROUND: The aim of this study was to determine the hematologic parameter with the highest diagnostic differentiation in the identification of massive acute pulmonary embolism (APE). METHODS: A retrospective study was performed on patients diagnosing with APE between June 2014 and June 2016. All radiological and laboratory parameters of patients were scanned through the electronic information management system of the hospital. PLR was obtained from the ratio of platelet count to lymphocyte count, NLR was obtained from the ratio of neutrophil count to lymphocyte count, WMR was obtained from white blood cell in mean platelet volume ratio, MPR was obtained from the ratio of mean platelet volume to platelet count, and RPR was obtained from the ratio of red distribution width to platelet count...

AIMS: To examine the association between red blood cell distribution width (RDW) and mortality in hemodialysis (HD) patients. METHODS: Three hundred fifty six patients on HD for >3 months were enrolled and followed for 2 years. Patients were divided into 2 groups according to the median RDW value. Patient survival and risk factors for mortality were investigated. RESULTS: The 2-year survival rate was significantly lower in the high-RDW group (>14...

BACKGROUND: As the relationship between psychological stress and platelet activation has been widely studied in recent years, activated platelets lead to certain biochemical changes, which occur in the brain in patients with mental disorders. However, data relating to the mean platelet volume (MPV) in patients with panic disorder (PD) are both limited and controversial. Herein, we aimed to evaluate, for the first time, the red cell distribution width (RDW) levels combined with MPV levels in patients with PD...

The aim of this study was to evaluate the diagnostic efficiency of red blood cell distribution width (RDW), platelet distribution width (PDW), the neutrophil-lymphocyte count ratio (NLCR), procalcitonin (PCT) and C-reactive protein (CRP) for the prediction of sepsis. A total of 120 consecutive patients who underwent blood culture testing were included. The PCT and CRP levels, and RDW, PDW and NLCR percentages were determined and compared between patients with positive blood cultures and those without. The PCT, CRP, RDW, PDW and NLCR values were significantly higher in patients with positive blood culture compared with those without...

The aim of the present study is to evaluate the relationship between atherogenic index and hematologic inflammatory markers and to evaluate the relationship between these parameters and associated variables in diabetic retinopathy (DR) patients. METHODS: The medical records of all patients admitted to the eye clinic between January and December 2014 were evaluated systematically...

The red panda ( Ailurus fulgens ) is classified as an endangered species by the International Union for Conservation of Nature and Natural Resources. The natural distribution of the red panda is in the Himalayas and southern China. Thoracic diseases such as dirofilariasis, hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, tracheal obstruction, lung worm infestation, and pneumonia have been reported in the red panda. The aim of this study was to describe the normal radiographic thoracic anatomy of captive red pandas as a species-specific reference for routine health examinations and clinical cases...

BACKGROUND: Red cell distribution width (RDW) is a quantitative measurement and shows heterogeneity of red blood cell size in peripheral blood. RDW has recently been associated with cardiovascular events and cardiovascular diseases, and it is a novel predictor of mortality. In this study, we aimed to evaluate the clinical usefulness of measuring RDW in patients with coronary stent thrombosis. PATIENTS AND METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed 3,925 consecutive patients who presented with acute coronary syndrome and who underwent coronary angiography at the Siyami Ersek Hospital between May 2011 and December 2013...
