BACKGROUND Systemic inflammatory response was shown to play an important role in development and progression of many cancer types and different inflammation-based indices were used for determining prognosis. We aimed to investigate the prognostic effects of neutrophil to lymphocyte ratio (NLR) and prognostic nutritional index (PNI) in patients with(More)
It was reported that hematological markers of systemic inflammatory response might be prognostic in various cancer types. We aimed to evaluate the platelet/lymphocyte ratio (PLR) as a prognostic factor and its effect on overall survival in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Clinicopathological characteristics and basal (pretreatment) PLR of 145 patients(More)
AIM OF THE STUDY Data are available indicating that red blood cell distribution width (RDW) is higher in cancer patients compared to healthy individuals or benign events. In our study, we aimed to investigate the influence of different RDW levels on survival in lung cancer patients. MATERIAL AND METHODS Clinical and laboratory data from 146 patients with(More)
