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… 
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 ratio
Prognostic impact of serum albumin levels on the recurrence of stage I non-small cell lung cancer
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.
A novel prognostic inflammation score predicts outcomes in patients with ovarian cancer.
The preoperative albumin level is an independent prognostic factor for optimally debulked epithelial ovarian cancer
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.
Association between preoperative serum albumin and prognosis in patients with adrenocortical carcinoma after primary resection: a retrospective study
Preoperative albumin might be a significant prognostic factor for ACC patients after primary resection, and may be useful for risk stratification and management of this rare malignancy.
The preoperative prognostic nutritional index is a predictive and prognostic factor of high-grade serous ovarian cancer
It is demonstrated that the PNI could be a predictive and prognostic parameter for HGSC.
Preoperative platelet/lymphocyte ratio is a superior prognostic factor compared to other systemic inflammatory response markers in ovarian cancer patients
Preoperative PLR is superior to other SIR markers (CA-125, NLR, fibrinogen, CRP, and albumin) as a predictor of survival in ovarian cancer patients.
Pretherapeutic Serum Albumin as an Outcome Prognosticator in Head and Neck Adenoid-Cystic Carcinoma
A potential prognostic value of serum albumin in patients with a head and neck ACC is suggested, and a statistically significant difference was observed in context with disease-free survival.


Preoperative serum albumin level is a prognostic indicator for adenocarcinoma of the gastric cardia
Serum albumin: a prognostic indicator in patients with colorectal cancer.
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.
Presurgical Serum Albumin Levels Predict Survival Time from Glioblastoma Multiforme
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.

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.
Malnutrition among gynaecological cancer patients
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.
Nutritional status, nutrition practices and post-operative complications in patients with gastrointestinal cancer.
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.

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.
Serum albumin and CA125 are powerful predictors of survival in epithelial ovarian cancer
The prognostic significance of presentation serum albumin, clinical stage and CA125 levels in ovarian cancer is compared to other types of cancer for which serumalbumin is known to be a biomarker.
