Inflammation influences cancer development and progression, and a low lymphocyte to monocyte ratio (LMR) has been reported to be a poor prognostic indicator in several malignancies. Here we quantify the prognostic impact of this biomarker and assess its consistency in various cancers. Eligible studies were retrieved from PubMed, Embase and Web of Science(More)
The relationship between urinary collecting system invasion (UCSI) and oncological outcomes in renal cell carcinoma (RCC) patients has attracted extensive attention recent years. However, the reports were inconsistent and remain controversial. Thus, we performed a systematic literature search of PubMed, Embase, Web of Science and The Cochrane Library(More)
We conducted a systematic review and meta-analysis to investigate the clinical values, including clinicopathology, prognosis, and diagnosis of different long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) in renal cell carcinoma (RCC). A total of 14 eligible studies, including 10 on clinicopathological features, 11 on prognosis, and 3 on diagnosis were identified. Results(More)
Previous studies have elevated the prognostic value of survivin in renal cell carcinoma (RCC). To increase statistical power and improve translation, we systematically searched PubMed, Web of Science, and Embase to identify relevant studies until December 2015 and conducted a standard meta-analysis. Based on the inclusion and exclusion criteria, a total of(More)
To examine the prognostic role of inflammatory response biomarkers in sarcomatoid renal cell carcinoma (sRCC). From January 2004 to May 2015, 103 patients with sRCC were enrolled in this study. Preoperative neutrophil to lymphocyte ratio (NLR), derived neutrophil to lymphocyte ratio (dNLR), platelet to lymphocyte ratio (PLR) and lymphocyte to monocyte ratio(More)
BACKGROUND Accumulated studies have investigated the prognostic role of insulin-like growth factor II mRNA-binding protein 3 (IMP3) in various cancers, but inconsistent and controversial results were obtained. Therefore, we performed a systematic review and meta-analysis to investigate the potential value of IMP3 in the prognostic prediction of human solid(More)

The aim of this study was to systematically review articles that investigated the prognostic significance of different microRNAs in bladder cancer (BC). We systematically searched PubMed, Web of Science, and Embase to identify relevant studies until March 2016. After screening, 26 studies that involved 2753 patients were included. Results suggested that(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the prognostic significance of tumor size in pathological T3aN0M0 renal cell carcinoma (RCC) treated by radical nephrectomy. MATERIALS AND METHODS Patients who underwent radical nephrectomy for sporadic RCC with pathological T3aN0M0 RCC at our institution between January 2006 and June 2015 were identified. The entire cohort was(More)
Previous studies have elevated the prognostic value of Ki-67 in renal cell carcinoma (RCC), but the reports are controversial and inconsistent. We conducted a systematic review and meta-analysis to clarify the significance of Ki-67 in RCC prognosis. We systematically searched PubMed, Web of Science, and Embase to identify relevant studies until April 2016.(More)
BACKGROUND The prognostic value of pretreatment lymphocyte to monocyte ratio (LMR) in metastatic clear cell renal cell carcinoma (ccRCC) is not well-described. The purpose of this study was to assess the prognostic role of pretreatment LMR in surgically treated metastatic ccRCC. PATIENTS AND METHODS One hundred forty-five patients with metastatic ccRCC(More)
