PURPOSE Here, we evaluate the prognostic effect of pretreatment serum lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) in locally advanced nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC). METHODS AND MATERIALS Pretreatment serum samples from a randomized controlled trial, which contained 199 neoadjuvant chemoradiotherapy patients and 201 neoadjuvant-concurrent chemoradiotherapy cases with(More)
Few studies investigated the prognosis of patients with advanced hepatocellular carcinoma (aHCC). This study was aimed to determine the prognostic value of differential blood cell counts including blood white cells, neutrophil, lymphocyte, neutrophil-lymphocyte ratio (NLR), and platelet in patients with aHCC. A total of 205 ethnic Chinese aHCC patients(More)
The platelet count, as an inflammation marker, is involved in the progress of tumor invasion. However, the prognostic value of platelet counts and the platelet-to-lymphocyte ratio (PLR) has not been investigated in patients with advanced hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). This study aimed to determine the prognostic value of platelet counts and PLR in HCC(More)
Pretreatment hematologic abnormalities have been reported to have prognostic value in patients with solid tumors. The aim of our study was to determine the prevalence of abnormalities in the hematologic profile in patients with colorectal cancer before treatment and to evaluate if such a profile could be used for prognostic evaluations. We identified all(More)
AIM To investigate the prognostic value of preoperative lymphocyte-to-monocyte ratio (LMR) in patients with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) undergoing curative hepatectomy. METHODS Clinicopathological data of 210 hepatitis B virus (HBV)-associated HCC patients who were treated by radical hepatic resection between 2003 and 2010 were retrospectively(More)
Despite the fact that malignancies are associated with hematological abnormalities, some clinical studies have been unable to detect such a relation. The aim of our study was to detect the prevalence of pretreatment hematologic abnormalities in patients with common solid tumors and to determine if such a profile could be used for prognostic evaluations. We(More)
AIM To evaluate the impact of postoperative infectious complications on hepatocellular carcinoma following curative hepatectomy. METHODS We performed a retrospective analysis of 200 hepatocellular carcinoma patients who underwent hepatectomy at our institution between September 2003 and June 2011. The patients' demographics, clinicopathological(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIMS Hepatitis B virus (HBV) reactivation was reported to be induced by transcatheter arterial chemoembolization (TACE) in HBV-related hepatocellular carcinonma (HCC) patients with a high incidence. The effective strategy to reduce hepatitis flares due to HBV reactivation in this specific group of patients was limited to lamivudine. This(More)
Little is known about the relationship between ABO blood groups and the clinicopathologic features in gastric adenocarcinoma patients of China. Whether the distribution of ABO blood groups in patients with gastric adenocarcinoma differs from that with benign diseases is also unknown. A total of 474 gastric adenocarcinoma patients and 404 with benign(More)
OBJECTIVE The prognosis of patients with advanced gastric cancer (AGC) remains poor, and no single chemotherapy regimen is recognized as a global standard. A phase 2 trial was conducted to determine the efficacy and tolerability of the modified combination regimen of capecitabine and irinotecan (mXELIRI) in patients with AGC. METHODS Patients with earlier(More)
