It is estimated that about 100 million cases of infection by Dengue virus occur each year and that nearly half the world’s population is at risk of Dengue virus infection. At present, no vacci...
As red blood cell distribution width increases, so does the risk of death from any cause.
The most serious, life-threatening complication of dengue infection is dengue shock syndrome (DSS), seen primarily in children. Daily platelet counts in children in the early stages of dengue can pred...
(HealthDay)—In children undergoing adenotonsillectomy for sleep-disordered breathing, preoperative elevated red cell distribution width is associated with an increased risk of respiratory adverse ev...
Studies that investigate dengue among pregnant women are rare. Although there is a high incidence of dengue infection in women of childbearing age,1 the effects of dengue infection during pregnancy on...
Dengue is increasingly recognized in the southern United States. When recently surveyed, however, clinicians in Texas seemed incompletely prepared to understand and manage patients with dengue.
NewsTakeda completes enrollment of more than 20,000 children and adolescents in global phase 3 trial of dengue vaccine candidate. Trial evaluates the efficacy of candidate to protect against all four...
Hidden vulnerabilities on the surface of the dengue virus have been found by researchers. This discovery offers exciting possibilities for development of drugs to target these weak spots for treatment...
A study finds that in and around São José do Rio Preto (São Paulo State, Brazil), where dengue is endemic and there was a rapid outbreak of Zika during the 2016 epidemic, prior dengue infecti...
This study aimes to evaluate platelet and leucocyte indicators, such as the mean platelet volume, platelet distribution width, plateletcrit, white blood cell count, neutrophil to lymphocyte ratio in n...
Platelets play a central role in myocardial infarction, and platelet activity can be evaluated with platelet indices including, platelet distribution width (PDW) and plateletcrit (PCT). These indices ...
The purpose of this study was to investigate the relationship between platelet indices [mean platelet volume (MPV), platelet count (PLT), platelet distribution width (PDW) and plateletcrit (PCT)] at d...
This study aimed to investigate whether there is a relationship between red blood cell distribution width, mean platelet volume and epistaxis in children.
To investigate clinical implications of changes in red cell distribution width (RDW) and mean platelet volume (MPV) in patients with acute myocardial infarction.
