Özet

Background: Inflammatory bowel diseases (IBDs), Crohn's disease, and ulcerative colitis are considered to be chronic inflammatory disorders implicated with recurrent tissue damage to the intestine. There is a positive correlation between platelet-leukocyte aggregates and ischemic vascular risk. There are limited data about the relationship between platelet leukocyte aggregates and IBD. This study was designed to determine whether platelet-leukocyte aggregates increase in IBD, and whether a relationship exists between the elevation of platelet-leukocyte aggregates and disease activity.
