A multicenter comparative trial of mitomycin C and futraful (MMC+FT), with or without protein-bound polysaccharide (PSK), was carried out by the Study Group for Surgical Adjuvant Chemotherapy for Gastric Cancer from 1978 to 1981. In 751 patients who underwent macroscopically curative resection preoperative granulocyte and lymphocyte count ratios (G/L) were measured. These patients were stratified with a preoperative cut-off of G/L:2.0, and those with or without PSK were compared in terms of… CONTINUE READING
