Relation Between Red Blood Cell Distribution Width and Inflammatory Biomarkers in a Large Cohort of Unselected Outpatients (Report)

Recent investigations of atherosclerosis have focused on inflammation, providing new insight into mechanisms of disease. (1) In particular, current views regard atherosclerosis as a dynamic and progressive disease arising from the combination of endothelial dysfunction and inflammation.

Factor V 1691 G-A Mutation Distribution in a Healthy Turkish Population/Saglikli Turk Populasyonunda Faktor V (1691 G-A) Mutasyon Sikligi (Report)

Factor V Leiden (1691 G-A) (FVL) causes activated protein C resistance and is the most common thrombophilic mutation worldwide. Guanine to adenine change leads to a replacement of glutamine to arginine at amino acid position 506. It is most prevalent among Caucasians but not found in Japanese and Africans [1,2]. Anatolia is at the crossroads […]
