Eligibility
Key inclusion criteria
We included the active ocular Behcet’s disease (BD) patients with posterior segment involvement.. The diagnosis of BD will reached according to the criteria of the International Study Group for Behcet’s Disease. Subjects with at least 2 months of lesion-free period were regarded in the inactive disease period, and subjects with any oral, skin, and/or genital lesions will regarded as in the active disease period. Patients and healthy volunteers that were matched for age and gender included in this study
Minimum age
20 Years
Maximum age
50 Years
Gender
Both males and females
Can healthy volunteers participate?
Yes
Key exclusion criteria
Patients and healthy volunteers who were on any kind of medication including corticosteroid and immunosuppressive therapy, who had smoking (smoke more than 1 cigarette per day) and drinking ( >1 standard drink per week) habits, or who had history of systemic and ocular disease will not included in the study

Prospective
Statistical methods / analysis
We require about at least 25 participants per three groups (Active, inactive, control). Differences among the three groups for thrombophilic parameters will evaluated using one-way ANOVA analysis, where applicable. Bonferroni test will used as post hoc test after one-way ANOVA. The level of significance was set at <0.05.

For a study power of 80%, we determined 25 subjects will enough to test all parameters. The power of the test is pathfinder to know the probability that the test will give the right result when there is a real effect. The power of the significance test is the same thing as the sensitivity of a screening test. The effect size was 0.5.

Summary
Brief summary
Purpose: To search platelet activation via detecting three important platelet activation parameters; Mean Platelet Volume (MPV), Platelet Distribution Width (PDW), and Plateletcrit (PCT) in patients with ocular Behcet's disease (BD) in comparison to those in healthy adults as controls.
Design: A prospective case control study
Participants and Controls: Twenty-five patients within the active period of the ocular BD with posterior segment involvement (Group 1), 25 patients within the inactive period of the ocular BD with posterior segment involvement (Group 2) and 25 age-and sex-matched healthy controls will included into the study (Group 3).
Methods: All patients and control subjects will undergo complete ophthalmologic evaluation. MPV, PDW, and PCT will measure in the studied groups.
Main Outcome Measures: Alterations in platelet activation parameters.
Results: The mean level of MPV value in Group 1, in Group 2, and in Group 3 will determined. Mean serum level of PDW in three groups will determined. Mean serum PCT value in Group 1, in Group 2, and in Group 3 will determined. MPV, PDW, and PCT levels can be significantly altered in ocular BD patients.
Conclusion: Platelet activation reflected by MPV, PDW, and PCT may have an impact on the genesis of vessel occlusion in ocular BD with posterior segment involvement. The results may be important for the clinical management of patients with ocular BD in everyday clinical practice since those platelet parameters are routinely detected in complete blood count analyses.
