We investigated the role of the lymphocyte-to-monocyte ratio (LMR) at diagnosis in patients with small cell lung cancer (SCLC) treated with standard chemotherapy. We retrospectively reviewed all SCLC patients who received frontline platinum-based chemotherapy or chemoradiotherapy. The cut-off LMR value at diagnosis was 4.19 according to time-dependent receiver-operating characteristic analysis. A total of 188 patients were divided into two groups according to the LMR at diagnosis (low vs. high… CONTINUE READING
