Response to the Letter: Mean platelet volume may not be a predictive marker for adverse prognosis in patients with acute ischemic stroke


      • MPV can be used to predict disease prognosis.
      • The cut-off value of MPV for AIS prognosis still needs to be further explored.
      • Low MPV is associated with good prognosis in AIS.
