BackgroundPlatelets play an important role in hemostatic and inflammatory responses. To evaluate any potential enhancement of platelet activity in patients with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), we measured the platelet aggregation responses to various stimuli.MethodsTwenty-two healthy controls, 24 patients with ulcerative colitis (UC) and 25 patients with Crohn's Disease (CD) were studied. The aggregation responses induced by three agonists (epinephrine, collagen, and ADP) were measured by an… CONTINUE READING
