BACKGROUND The inflammation-based Glasgow prognostic score (GPS) has been demonstrated to be prognostic for various tumors. We investigated the value of the modified GPS (mGPS) for the prognosis of patients undergoing curative resection for colorectal liver metastases (CRLM). METHODS A total of 343 patients were enrolled onto this study. The mGPS was(More)
Accumulation of tumor-infiltrating mast cells (MCs) predicts poor survival in several cancers after resection. However, its effect on the prognosis of patients with colorectal liver metastases (CRLM) is not known. Our retrospective study included 135 patients who underwent potentially curative resection for CRLM between 2001 and 2010. Expression of(More)
