Background: Recently some noninvasive tests have been studied for determining the activity of disease in ulcerative colitis. Aim: The aim of this study is to determine the added predictive ability of mean platelet volume (MPV) and red cell distribution activity of ulcerative colitis patients. Materials and methods: Sixty-eight patients with ulcerative colitis were enrolled in this cross-sectional study. For all subjects white blood cell (WBC) count, platelet (PLT) count, RDW and MPV tests were performed.
