We investigated whether elevated neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio ( NLR ) was associated with poor anti-tumor immunity and prognosis in patients with intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma ( ICC ). Clinicopathologic data of 102 patients with ICC who underwent hepatectomy was retrospectively analyzed. The Kaplan-Meier method and Cox regression model were used to analyze the survival and prognosis. The percentage of overall lymphocytes , T cells and CD8+ T cells in the high NLR group was lower than that… CONTINUE READING
