BACKGROUND Recently, pretreatment monocyte counts and the lymphocyte/monocyte ratio (LMR) have been proven to be significantly associated with the clinical outcomes of several types of cancer. In this study, we analyzed the prognostic significance of the LMR in stage Ib1-IIa cervical cancer patients who underwent a radical operation. METHODS A total of 485 patients with stage Ib1-IIa cervical cancer were included in this retrospective study. We evaluated the prognostic values of the absolute… CONTINUE READING
