OBJECTIVE Preoperative methods to estimate disease-specific survival (DSS) for resectable gastroesophageal (GE) junction and gastric adenocarcinoma are limited. We evaluated the relationship between DSS and pretreatment neutrophil to lymphocyte ratio (NLR). BACKGROUND The patient's inflammatory state is thought to be associated with oncologic outcomes, and NLR has been used as a simple and convenient marker for the systemic inflammatory response. Previous studies have suggested that NLR is… CONTINUE READING
