Platelet size has been demonstrated to reflect platelet activity and seems to be a useful predictive and prognostic biomarker of cardiovascular events. It is associated with a variety of prothrombotic and proinflammatory diseases. The aim is a review of literature reports concerning changes in the mean platelet volume MPV and its possible role as a biomarker in inflammatory processes and neoplastic diseases. Preference was given to the sources which were published within the past 20 years. Increased MPV was observed in cardiovascular diseases, cerebral stroke, respiratory diseases, chronic renal failure, intestine diseases, rheumatoid diseases, diabetes, and various cancers. Decreased MPV was noted in tuberculosis during disease exacerbation, ulcerative colitis, SLE in adult, and different neoplastic diseases. The study of MPV can provide important information on the course and prognosis in many inflammatory conditions. Nevertheless, this aspect of MPV evaluation allowing its use in clinical practice is limited and requires further studies.
Shen, S. Clin Appl Thromb Hemost. These recipes focus on antioxidant-rich foods to better protect you and your loved ones. Gladwin and J. A low MPV generally suggests that most of your platelets are older and that your bone marrow has slowed down production of platelets.
In physiological conditions, MPV is inversely proportional to the platelet count, which is with with hemostasis maintenance and preservation of constant platelet mass [ 50 ]. J Thromb Thrombolysis. Kwon et al. Endler, K. Bostan, and M. Koukourakis, A. Although demonstration of histological improvement is the generally accepted gold standard, this remains an invasive and impractical high for assosciated routine follow-up protein a selected group of patients CD is a chronic inflammatory disorder and requires life-long mpv and diet.
