BACKGROUND: Endothelial function and arterial stiffness are known to be altered in pre-eclamptic pregnancies. Previous studies have shown conflicting results regarding the best technique for assessing vascular function in pregnancy. In this study, we made a comprehensive evaluation of in vivo vascular function (including flow-mediated dilatation (FMD), peripheral arterial tonometry (PAT), and arterial stiffness) in pre-eclamptic patients and compared them to normal pregnancies. In addition, we assessed the relation between vascular function and systemic inflammation...

The thromboinflammatory process plays an important role in the pathophysiology of acute coronary syndrome (ACS). Recently, the mean platelet volume-to-lymphocyte ratio (MPVLR) has been suggested as a prognostic marker in patients with ACS. We assessed the association of MPVLR with the severity and complexity of coronary atherosclerosis in patients with ACS. A total of 1782 patients undergoing urgent coronary angiography were enrolled. The SYNTAX score (SXscore) was calculated for each patient. Patients were divided into 2 groups: low SXscore (<23) and intermediate-to-high SXscore (≥23)...

BACKGROUND: Henoch-Schonlein purpura (HSP) is a systemic small-vessel vasculitis that occurs mainly in children. A review of the literature has suggested a correlation between mean platelet volume (MPV) and several inflammatory disorders. However, to the best of our knowledge, any potential correlation between MPV and HSP has not been reported in the literature. Therefore, our study aimed to evaluate the role of MPV levels in patients with HSP. METHODS: This study included 97 children with HSP and 120 healthy individuals as controls...

Platelet aggregation and inflammation are both implicated in coronary artery disease (CAD). Thrombin induced platelet-fibrin clot strength (MAThrombin) measured by thrombelastography (TEG) has been proved to be a novel marker of platelet aggregation. The aim of this study was to investigate the correlation of MAThrombin to platelet volume indices (PVIs) or to inflammatory markers in different types of CAD. 206 patients with different types of CAD were enrolled. MAThrombin, PVIs, including mean platelet volume (MPV), platelet distribution width (PDW), and platelet-large cell ratio (P-LCR) as well as inflammatory markers, including high-sensitivity C-reactive protein (hs-CRP) and fibrinogen (Fbg) were measured...

BACKGROUND: Mean platelet volume (MPV) is a measure of platelet volume. It reveals the presence of inflammatory burden and disease activity in many diseases. Serum uric acid (SUA) is one of the most important antioxidants in human biological fluids and is responsible for neutralizing > 50% of the free radicals in the human blood. For this reason, it was thought that the antioxidant effects of SUA could increase the life expectancy and/or reduce the incidence of malignancy. OBJECTIVES: To determine the role of mean platelet volume (MPV) and serum uric acid (SUA) level in the diagnosis of neonatal sepsis (NS)...

Penicillins are typical of complex ionic samples which likely contain large number of degradation-related impurities (DRIs) with different polarities and charge properties. It is often a challenge to develop selective and robust high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) methods for the efficient separation of all DRIs. In this study, an analytical quality by design (AQbD) approach was proposed for stability-indicating method development of cloxacillin. The structures, retention and UV characteristics rules of penicillins and their impurities were summarized and served as useful prior knowledge...
