- The Relationship Between Inflammatory Marker Levels and Pulmonary Tuberculosis Severity. Abakay, Ozlem; Abakay, Abdurrahman; Sen, Hadice; Tanrikulu, Abdullah // Inflammation;Apr2015, Vol. 38 Issue 2, p691
We aimed to investigate the correlation between red cell distribution width (RDW), neutrophil to lymphocyte ratio (NLR), platelet to lymphocyte ratio (PLR), and other inflammatory markers with pulmonary tuberculosis (PTB) severity. Seventy patients with active pulmonary tuberculosis were...

- C-Reactive Protein and Interleukin-18 Levels in Relation to Coronary Heart Disease: Prospective Cohort Study from Busselton Western Australia. Hung, Joseph; Knuiman, Matthew W.; Divitini, Mark L.; Langton, Paul E.; Chapman, Caroline L.; Beilby, John P. // Heart, Lung & Circulation;Apr2008, Vol. 17 Issue 2, p90
Background: Elevated levels of inflammatory markers are associated with incident coronary heart disease (CHD), but it remains controversial whether these markers provide incremental predictive value to conventional risk factors. We investigated the relationship between C-reactive protein (CRP)...
- Systemic Inflammatory Response as a Risk and Prognosis Factor in Ventilator-Associated Pneumonia. Ramírez, Paula; Ferrer, Miquel; Torres, Antoni // Current Respiratory Medicine Reviews;2010, Vol. 6 Issue 1, p11
Any important aggression toward our bodies leads to a complex systemic inflammatory response that can be expressed by biomarkers. Thus biomarkers can help us to diagnose and manage the initial aggression. Application of biomarkers to ventilator-associated pneumonia (VAP) has two additional...
