BACKGROUND: Debate around the value of laboratory tests in establishing the diagnosis of acute appendicitis (AA) still continues. This prospective study aimed to investigate the changes in mean platelet volume (MPV), platelet distribution width (PDW), and red cell distribution width (RDW) with the diagnosis of acute appendicitis. METHOD: 200 patients who underwent emergency appendectomy were included. According to postoperative histology, patients were divided into three groups: acute non-complicated, acute complicated appendicitis (positive appendicectomy groups), and negative appendectomy group...

Primary percutaneous coronary intervention (pPCI) is associated with improved prognosis in patients with ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI). However, no-reflow phenomenon limits the benefit of revascularization and predicts adverse outcomes. The specific mechanism for its occurrence is still not entirely clear, and it is believed at present that platelet activation and inflammation play a pivotal role in developing no-reflow. Both increased mean platelet volume (MPV), which is a platelet activation marker, and lymphopenia, which is an inflammation marker, have been linked to adverse events and poor prognosis after STEMI...

Serial phlebotomy is a common sampling practice for repeated-measures studies in biomedical research. In NHP, the effect ofserial blood collection on RBC parameters has been characterized, but the effects on platelet parameters and other aspects of thehemogram have not been well studied. We sought to characterize the circulating platelet phenotype throughout the course of 7serial phlebotomies spanning 30 d in pigtailed macaques (Macaca nemestrina). Phlebotomy was performed on 23 animals at days0, 2, 4, 7, 10, 21, and 30 to quantify the circulating platelet count and markers of both hemostatic and immune platelet activation...

Human metapneumovirus (hMPV) infections pose a serious health risk to young children, particularly in cases of premature birth. No licensed vaccine exists and there is no standard treatment for hMPV infections apart from supportive hospital care. We describe the production of a Sendai virus (SeV) recombinant that carries a gene for a truncated hMPV fusion (F) protein (SeV-MPV-Ft). The vaccine induces binding and neutralizing antibody responses toward hMPV and protection against challenge with hMPV in a cotton rat system...

Atherosclerosis and its late sequels are still the number one cause of death in Western societies. Platelets are a driving force not only during the genesis of atherosclerosis, but especially in its late stages, as evidenced by complications such as arterial thrombosis, myocardial infarction, and ischaemic stroke. Platelets are small, anucleate blood elements of critical importance in cardiovascular disease, a major cause of morbidity and mortality. Numerous risk scores exist to identify healthy individuals at increased risk of developing atherosclerosis and cardiovascular disease...

The most common cause of thrombocytopenia in children is immune thrombocytopenia. Nevertheless, some atypical cases should evoke the hypothesis of genetic thrombocytopenia. Indeed, in the past years, 30 new genes had been described in the field of inherited thrombocytopenia. We report a series of 11 cases of a newly diagnosed entity: ACTN1-related macrothrombocytopenia. Mutations in the gene ACTN1 cause mild macrothrombocytopenia characterized by elevated mean platelet volume and elevated immature platelet fraction, and low bleeding tendency...
