Ovarian cancer is associated with high mortality due to asymptomatic nature of the disease and advance stage at presentation. In advanced stages, it is associated with cachexia and ascites leading to malnutrition. Nutritional status of a patient with cancer has been well known to be associated with survival and can be assessed by level of albumin in blood. Therefore, in this study, we sought to determine preoperative serum albumin as prognostic predictor of survival in patients with ovarian… Expand
Preoperative prognostic nutritional index is a powerful predictor of prognosis in patients with stage III ovarian cancer
Many established inflammation- and nutrition-related factors have been investigated as potential independent prognostic factors in various cancers, including the C-reactive protein/albumin ratioExpand
Prognostic impact of serum albumin levels on the recurrence of stage I non-small cell lung cancer
TLDR
Serum albumin levels appear to be a significant independent prognostic factor for tumor recurrence in patients with stage I non-small cell lung cancer who have undergone complete resection. Expand
A novel prognostic inflammation score predicts outcomes in patients with ovarian cancer.
TLDR
The novel prognostic inflammation score (PIS) was shown to be a significant predictor for OS and PFS according to multivariate analysis and is a significant prognostic marker adjusted for clinicopathologic characteristics to further identify patients' survival differences. Expand
The preoperative albumin level is an independent prognostic factor for optimally debulked epithelial ovarian cancer
TLDR
The preoperative albumin level is an independent prognostic factor for overall survival in optimally debulked EOC patients and further investigations about preoperativealbumin level in prognostic models will contribute to the literature. Expand

Background Adrenocortical carcinoma (ACC) is a rare and aggressive malignancy with a poor prognosis. Given the limited treatment options, prognostic assessment of ACC is increasingly crucial. In thisExpand
Value of the pretreatment albumin to globulin ratio in predicting long-term mortality in breast cancer patients.
TLDR
Pretreatment AGR is an independent, significant predictor of long-term mortality in breast cancer patients, even in patients with normal albumin levels. Expand
The preoperative prognostic nutritional index is a predictive and prognostic factor of high-grade serous ovarian cancer
TLDR
It is demonstrated that the PNI could be a predictive and prognostic parameter for HGSC. Expand
Preoperative platelet/lymphocyte ratio is a superior prognostic factor compared to other systemic inflammatory response markers in ovarian cancer patients
TLDR
Preoperative PLR is superior to other SIR markers (CA-125, NLR, fibrinogen, CRP, and albumin) as a predictor of survival in ovarian cancer patients. Expand
Preoperative C-Reactive Protein/Albumin Ratio Predicts Prognosis of Patients after Curative Resection for Gastric Cancer
TLDR
The preoperative CRP/Alb ratio, a system inflammation-based prognostic score, is a superior predictor of OS in patients undergoing curative resection for GC and may help to identify the high-risk patients for treatment decisions. Expand
The prognostic value of the preoperative c-reactive protein/albumin ratio in ovarian cancer
TLDR
The CRP/Alb is a novel independent marker of poor prognosis among ovarian cancer patients and shows superior prognostic ability compared to the established inflammation-based prognostic indices. Expand

Preoperative serum albumin level is a prognostic indicator for adenocarcinoma of the gastric cardia
TLDR
It is recommended that postoperative adjuvant therapy be given to all patients with hypoalbuminemia preoperatively, as serum albumin level and the pathologic T, N statuses were independent factors correlated with prognosis. Expand
Serum albumin: a prognostic indicator in patients with colorectal cancer.
TLDR
Using the Cox proportional hazard model, age, tumour stage (Dukes' stage) and tumour differentiation were shown to be independent prognostic factors for survival in patients with localized colorectal cancer and the pre-treatment serum albumin concentration was found to be anindependent prognostic indicator.

The presence of a systemic inflammatory response (the GPS) appears to be a useful indicator of poor outcome independent of treatment in patients with metastatic breast cancer. Expand
Presurgical Serum Albumin Levels Predict Survival Time from Glioblastoma Multiforme
TLDR
The association between serum albumin level and time until death persists when adjusted for demographic and treatment variables using Cox proportional hazards regression, and it is speculated that the results may be attributable to an association between low serumalbumin levels and physiological events associated with angiogenesis.

TLDR
A new prognostic inflammatory and nutritional index is described allowing the correct follow-up of most pathological conditions, and provides a more sensitive tool for the diagnosis and prognosis of stressed patients than any other method available to date. Expand
Malnutrition among gynaecological cancer patients
TLDR
Malnutrition in gynaecological cancer patients is a significant problem, especially among those patients diagnosed with ovarian cancer, and ovarian cancer patients were 19 times more likely to be categorized as PG-SGA class B compared to patients with benign conditions. Expand
Nutritional status, nutrition practices and post-operative complications in patients with gastrointestinal cancer.
TLDR
Malnutrition is prevalent among surgical patients with gastrointestinal cancer and poor nutritional status coupled with delayed and inadequate post-operative nutrition practices are associated with worse clinical outcomes. Expand

TLDR
Compelling evidence suggests that serum hepatic protein levels correlate with morbidity and mortality, and they help identify those who are the most likely to develop malnutrition, even if well nourished prior to trauma or the onset of illness. Expand

TLDR
Krebs' and Goplerud's score (based on age, nutritional status, tumor status, ascites, previous chemotherapy and irradiation) seems to offer reliable eligibility criteria for those patients who can benefit from surgery. Expand
