BACKGROUND Various inflammation-based prognostic scores, including the Glasgow prognostic score (GPS), neutrophil to lymphocyte ratio (NLR), platelet to lymphocyte ratio (PLR), prognostic index (PI), and prognostic nutritional index (PNI), have been associated with survival in patients with several types of cancer. This study compared the ability of these scores to predict recurrence-free survival (RFS) in patients with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) after curative hepatectomy. METHODS Data… CONTINUE READING
