The protective effect of increased levels of indirect bilirubin on atherosclerotic heart disease in patients of Gilbert's syndrome is well known. The aim of the study was to investigate the effects of increased levels of bilirubin on the mean platelet volume (MPV) and other hematological parameters. Thirty-two men and 36 women (a total of 68 Gilbert's syndrome patients) and a similar age group of 68 healthy individuals (32 men and 36 women) were included in the study. Hematologic tests, C… Expand
Effects of Gilbert ’ s Syndrome on Lipid Profile , Levels of Serum Uric Acid , Glucose and Insulin Resistance
Purpose: The protective effect of bilirubin on atherosclerotic heart disease in Gilbert's syndrome (GS) is well known. The aim of the study was to evaluate whether the atherosclerotic risk factorsExpand

TLDR
This study investigated the effects of increased levels of bilirubin on the mean platelet volume (MPV) and other hematological parameters and found that MPV level was lower in the Gilbert’s syndrome patients than the normal population. Expand
Mean Platelet Volume and Vitamin D Level
TLDR
There was a strong association between a low vitamin D level and a high MPV; therefore, vitamin D deficiency may be associated with increased MPV. Expand
Relationship between mean platelet volume and vitamin D deficiency in fibromyalgia
TLDR
Vitamin D deficiency may contribute to an increase in MPV levels, which is a risk factor in cardiovascular disease (CVD) in FMS, and the number of tender points was recorded. Expand
The association between serum YKL-40 levels, mean platelet volume, and c-reactive protein in patients with cellulitis
TLDR
Increased YKL-40 and MPV levels might be a prognostic factor for cellulitis in patients, and values were correlated with higher CRP in the cellulitis group than in controls. Expand
Gilbert ’ s Syndrome Gilbert ’ s Sendromu
Gilbert's syndrome is a benign condition that does not progress to chronic liver disease or fibrosis. Gilbert's syndrome diagnosis should be considered in patients with chronic elevation ofExpand
Bilirubin, platelet activation and heart disease: a missing link to cardiovascular protection in Gilbert's syndrome?
TLDR
The first article to discuss the possible role of bilirubin as an anti-thrombotic agent, which inhibits platelet activation and potentially, organ infarction, which could contribute to the reduced mortality rate in mildly hyperbilirbinemic individuals is discussed. Expand
Is the Mean Platelet Volume Predictive of Hip Fractures in the Elderly?
TLDR
This study investigated whether fractures in the femur neck and intertrochanteric region are related to Mean platelet volume (MPV), which reflects the size of platelets and is accepted as a marker of platelet function. Expand
Decreased Physiological Serum Total Bile Acid Concentrations in Patients with Type 2 Diabetic Peripheral Neuropathy
TLDR
It is suggested that lower physiological serum TBA level may be associated with the prevalence of DPN in T2DM patients and may be a potential biomarker for DPN. Expand

TLDR
In vitro and in vivo trials have shown that UCB at physiological concentrations can improve endothelial function, lipid profile and reduce vascular inflammation, thereby imparting its cardiovascular protection. Expand

TLDR
It may be presumed that chronic hyperbilirubinemia prevent the development of ischemic heart disease by increasing the serum antioxidant capacity. Expand

TLDR
The findings of this preliminary study suggest that reduced sd-LDL-C, ox- LDL and hs-CRP levels may have a role in preventing atherosclerosis in subjects with GS. Expand

TLDR
Serum MPV values were significantly higher in regular smokers than in controls and the effect of smoking cessation on MPV decreased significantly at 3 months after smoking cessation. Expand
Normal range of mean platelet volume in healthy subjects: Insight from a large epidemiologic study.
TLDR
The aim of the study was to measure MPV in normal subjects in a large cohort of Turkish adults and found that a patient having a MPV beyond this range should be evaluated carefully especially for occlusive arterial diseases. Expand

TLDR
The presence of metabolic syndrome and its components do not constitute a difference in MPV values in obese patients with a BMI 30 kg/m2 or more and no significant difference was observed between groups regarding low-density lipoprotein cholesterol, white blood cells, platelet counts, MPV, hematocrit and hemoglobin.

The effect of weight loss on the mean platelet volume in obese patients
TLDR
In addition to its well-known positive effects on cardiovascular disease risk, weight loss may also possess significant anti-platelet activation properties that can contribute its antiatherogenic effects in obese patients. Expand

TLDR
It is suggested that platelet counts and MPV might be a surrogate marker associated with clustered MS in women, and MS is positively associated with platelet count and inversely associated with MPV, independently of confounding variables only in women. Expand

TLDR
This review will discuss the recent prospective studies on cardiovascular risk in individuals with Gilbert syndrome as well as those with the UGT1A1*28 allele and some of the therapeutic approaches that could be used to increase serum bilirubin concentrations to prevent CVD and other oxidative and inflammatory diseases.

TLDR
It is concluded that the use of a VLCD is potentially superior for weight reduction in patients with pre‐existing atherosclerosis by suggesting that fasting might alter the control of platelet size with a possible impact on platelet activity. Expand
Relation Between Mean Platelet Volume and Severity of Atherosclerosis in Patients With Acute Coronary Syndromes
TLDR
In patients with ACS, high MPV levels were associated with severity of CAD, and it is possible that MPV can be a helpful marker in patients with CAD for the severity of coronary atherosclerosis. Expand
