Evaluation of neutrophil-lymphocyte ratio, platelet-lymphocyte ratio and mean platelet volume in patients with ankylosing spondylitis

Ayhan Aşkın.

Abstract
Purpose: The purpose of the present study was to evaluate neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio, platelet-to-lymphocyte ratio, and mean platelet volume levels in ankylosing spondylitis patients and explore their clinical significance.
Material and Methods: The study included 51 patients with AS and 53 healthy individuals. Age, sex, duration of disease, Bath Ankylosing Spondylitis Activity Index score, total white blood counts, neutrophil, platelet, lymphocyte counts, C-reactive protein, sedimantation, neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio, platelet-to-lymphocyte ratio, and mean platelet volume values of the patients were analyzed retrospectively.
Results: The present study found a significantly different neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio, platelet-to-lymphocyte ratio, and mean platelet volume values in patients with ankylosing spondylitis when compared to the control group. We found a significantly different neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio, platelet-to-lymphocyte ratio, and mean platelet volume values in patients with active phase of ankylosing spondylitis when compared to the inactive group.
Conclusion: Clinicians may use neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio, platelet-to-lymphocyte ratio, and mean platelet volume values to evaluate disease activity in ankylosing spondylitis since these easily determinable measurements are objective, simple and readily available and also do not lead to any additional cost

Key words: Ankylosing Spondylitis, neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio, platelet-to-lymphocyte ratio, mean platelet volume
