Pretreatment absolute granulocyte (less than 6,000/cu mm), lymphocyte (greater than 1,500/cu mm), and monocyte (300 to 900/cu mm) counts are three independent indicators of good prognosis for patients with metastatic gastric cancer. There tests improve the prediction of survival significantly compared with estimates based on ambulatory status alone. If the patient is completely ambulatory, median survival (MS) is 27.6 weeks, and it improves further to 37.6 weeks if results of two hematology… CONTINUE READING
