Abstract

Oxidative stress and reduced microvascular flow are important factors in the pathogenesis of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). The increased oxidative stress reduces the eriytrocyte deformability. However, in IBD, there are no studies in the literature which evaluate erythrocyte deformability.
