Many diseases have now been found to be associated with high platelet-derived microparticles (PMP) count in blood, like myocardial infarction, acute coronary syndrome, stroke, venous thrombo-embolism, thrombocytopenic purpura, preeclampsia, fungal (candida albicans) sepsis, hereditary thrombophilia, thalassemia,  antiphospholipid antibody syndrome, SLE, rheumatoid arthritis, psoriasis etc (Nieuwland and Sturk 2002, Italiano, Mairuhu et al. 2010, Bucciarelli, Martinelli et al. 2012, Marques,...
