A Novel Scoring System Based on Fibrinogen and the Neutrophil-Lymphocyte Ratio as a Predictor of Chemotherapy Response and Prognosis in Patients with Advanced Gastric Cancer.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE We assessed the clinical applicability of the F-NLR score, which is based on fibrinogen (F) and the neutrophil-lymphocyte ratio (NLR), and the Glasgow Prognostic Score (GPS) to predict the therapeutic effects of chemotherapy or chemoradiotherapy on advanced gastric cancer and the prognoses of patients. METHODS Sixty-eight patients with advanced… (More)
