INTRODUCTION The aim of this study was to investigate the prognostic significance of the combination of the preoperative platelet count and neutrophil-lymphocyte ratio (COP-NLR) for predicting postoperative survival of patients undergoing complete resection for non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). METHODS The preoperative COP-NLR was calculated on the(More)
BACKGROUND Our aim was to determinate the prognostic value of neutrophil-lymphocyte ratio (NLR) and platelet-lymphocyte ratio (PLR) in primary operable patients with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). METHODS Six hundred seventy-eight NSCLC patients were enrolled in this study. The prognostic significance of both markers was determined by both univariate(More)
INTRODUCTION Targeting activating oncogenic driver mutations in lung adenocarcinoma has led to prolonged survival in patients harboring these specific genetic alterations. The prognostic value of these mutations has not yet been elucidated. The prevalence of recently uncovered non-coding somatic mutation in promoter region of TERT gene is also to be(More)
The prognostic value of the platelet-to-lymphocyte ratio (PLR) in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) remains controversial. We therefore conducted a meta-analysis of published studies to determine the prognostic value of PLR in NSCLC. A systematic search was performed in PubMed, Web of Science and Embase for relevant studies. The data and characteristics of(More)
The SARI (suppressor of AP-1, regulated by IFN) gene, which is also called BATF2, is associated with the risk of several kinds of cancer, and loss of SARI expression is frequently detected in aggressive and metastatic cancer. However, the functional role of SARI in lung adenocarcinoma remains unknown. We have shown that loss of SARI expression initiates(More)
Data transmitted in large scale dense wireless sensor networks (WSN) is often highly spatial correlated, and filtering out the spatial redundancy has been proved to be effective in energy conserving. At the same time, according to the results of Min Dong, different MAC mechanisms should be applied to different SNR regimes. But no existing MAC schemes design(More)
Cripto-1 can promote tumourigenesis and may be a potential prognostic biomarker in several malignancies, yet little is known about this protein in lung adenocarcinoma (LAC). The aim of this study was to evaluate the prognostic value of cripto-1 expression in a cohort of patients with LAC. Tumours from 290 patients with pathologically confirmed LAC were used(More)
The aim of the present study was to investigate the prognostic value of the combination of preoperative platelet count (PLT) and mean platelet volume (MPV) in patients with primary operable non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). We retrospectively analysed data from 546 patients with NSCLC who underwent complete resection at our institution from 2006 to 2010.(More)
