BACKGROUND Bilirubin levels have been associated with risk of several malignancies. The association between pretreatment serum bilirubin levels and survival of curatively resected non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) is unclear. METHODS This analysis was performed retrospectively in a cohort of 1617 consecutive patients with bilirubin levels within the range considered normal, who received curative resection for NSCLC. The receiver operating characteristic (ROC) curve analysis was performed to… CONTINUE READING
