Systemic inflammatory response index and monocyte-to-high density lipoprotein ratio- new biomarkers remarking the inflammation in primary sarcopenia: The SIMPS study.

OBJECTIVE: To investigate the relationship of sarcopenia with systemic inflammation response index (SIRI), monocyte to high-density lipoprotein ratio (MHR) and platelet parameters in geriatric patients.

METHODS: We designed a cross-sectional retrospective study in patients presented to a geriatric outpatient clinic for the first time. The diagnosis of sarcopenia was made in accordance with the EWGSOP2 criteria. SIRI, MHR, mean platelet volume /Platelet count (MPV/Plt), platelet distribution width /Platelet (PDW/Plt), platelet/lymphocyte ratio (PLR) were calculated from fasting blood test results at the time of admission.

RESULTS: Among 262 patients, 79 patients (30.1%) with sarcopenia had significantly higher frequencies of delirium, hypothyroidism, chronic kidney disease and probable depression (p=0.010; p=0.018; p=0.034; p<0.001). Malnutrition scores and cognitive impairment scores were significantly lower in sarcopenic group (p<0.001 for both). Patients with sarcopenia had significantly higher MHR, SIRI and C-reactive protein values than patients without sarcopenia (p<0.001; p=0.001 and p=0.006, respectively). No significant difference was found between the groups in terms of MPV/Plt, PDW/Plt, PLR (p=0.605; p=0.920; p=0.510). Area under the curve for MHR was 0.675 (95% CI: 0.604-0.746, p0.99.

CONCLUSIONS: The finding of higher MHR and SIRI in geriatric sarcopenia patients supports low-grade chronic inflammation in the pathophysiology of sarcopenia. These non-invasive, cost-effective and simple parameters based on traditional peripheral blood cell counts may be warning signs for sarcopenia in the geriatric population (Tab. 3, Fig. 1, Ref. 25). Text in PDF Keywords: primary sarcopenia, inflammation, systemic inflammation response index, monocyte/high-density lipoprotein ratio, platelet parameters.
