AIM To determine the significance of increased serum direct bilirubin level for lymph node metastasis (LNM) in Chinese rectal cancer patients, after those with known hepatobiliary and pancreatic diseases were excluded. METHODS A cohort of 469 patients, who were treated at the China-Japan Friendship Hospital, Ministry of Health (Beijing, China), in the period from January 2003 to June 2011, and with a pathological diagnosis of rectal adenocarcinoma, were recruited. They included 231 patients… Expand
Prognostic value of preoperative serum bilirubin levels in ovarian cancer.
TLDR
IBIL is a potential independent prognostic factor for overall survival (OS) and progression-free survival (PFS) in patients with epithelial ovarian carcinoma and the higher the IBL level, the better the prognosis of patients with EOC. Expand

TLDR
Lower DBIL was associated with a poorer prognosis and may be regarded as an independent prognostic marker for patients with OSCC, and higher DBIL had longer overall survival than those with lower DBIL. Expand
Nomograms incorporated serum direct bilirubin level for predicting prognosis in stages II and III colorectal cancer after radical resection
TLDR
Serum direct bilirubin (DBIL) was validated as a significant prognostic factor by univariate cox regression test for both overall survival (OS) and disease free survival (DFS) and it was confirmed that high DBIL level was an independently prognostic factors for both OS and DFS. Expand
A nomogram based on pretreatment levels of serum bilirubin and total bile acid levels predicts survival in colorectal cancer patients
TLDR
TBIL, TBIL and TBA levels are independent prognostic factors in colorectal cancer patients and the nomograms based on OS and DFS can be used as a practical model for evaluating the prognosis of CRC patients. Expand
Is serum bilirubin level a predictor factor in parotid gland carcinoma?
TLDR
It is observed that increased preoperative bilirubin levels are associated with reduced survival time in the postoperative period of patients with parotid gland carcinoma. Expand
A nomogram based on serum bilirubin and albumin levels predicts survival in gastric cancer patients
TLDR
It is suggested that serum Tbil and albumin levels are independent predictors of OS in gastric cancer patients, and that an index that combines TBIL andalbumin levels with the TNM staging system might have more predictive value than any of these measures alone. Expand
Serum liver enzymes serve as prognostic factors in patients with intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma
TLDR
It is demonstrated that liver enzymes albumin, GELO, TP, ALP, ALT, AST, TBIL, DBIL, GGT, and LDH may serve as valuable predictive markers in ICC patients. Expand
A sample model established by S-index predicting overall survival after curative resection of primary hepatocellular carcinoma
TLDR
A precise nomogram is developed that predicts the survival probability of patients with PHCC after radical surgery based on a new indicator, the S-index, combined with other routine clinical parameters and shows excellent results in terms of prognosis. Expand
Albumin, bilirubin, uric acid and cancer risk: results from a prospective population-based study
TLDR
It is indicated that higher levels of albumin and uric acid are related to lower risks of breast cancer and cancer mortality and further studies are needed to assess whether the observed associations are causal. Expand
The prognostic impact of serum bilirubin in stage IV colorectal cancer patients
TLDR
Assessment of the prognostic value of pre‐treatment serum bilirubin in stage IV CRC patients found it to be a promising prognostic factor of non‐liver disease‐related death in various cancers. Expand

Pre-operative predictive factors for intra-operative pathological lymph node metastasis in rectal cancers.
TLDR
Age, abdominal pain or discomfort, allergic history and direct bilirubin were associated with pLNM, which may be helpful for preoperative selection and found to be associated with prognosis. Expand
Drug Allergy and the Risk of Lymph Node Metastasis in Rectal Cancer
TLDR
Patients with drug allergy had a higher percentage of group patients with pT1/pT2; and for type of allergic drug, this inverse association was found for penicillins, not for other allergic drugs. Expand

TLDR
LVI, PD, and pT2 are independent risk factors predicting LNM in pT1–2 rectal carcinoma, and lymphovascular invasion and depth of invasion were significantly related to nodal involvement. Expand
Lymph Node Retrieval in Rectal Cancer is Dependent on Many Factors—the Role of the Tumor, the Patient, the Surgeon, the Radiotherapist, and the Pathologist
TLDR
It is concluded that in pathology laboratories a median of at least 8 lymph nodes need to be examined in rectal cancer specimens, but that higher numbers are desirable and achievable in most cases, even after preoperative radiotherapy. Expand
Depth of Tumor Invasion Independently Predicts Lymph Node Metastasis in T2 Rectal Cancer
TLDR
Depth of invasion is an independent predictor for LNM in T2 rectal cancer in a subset of patients with low risk of LNM who may be candidates of local excision. Expand
Impact of number of nodes retrieved on outcome in patients with rectal cancer.
TLDR
The results suggest that the pathologic assessment of lymph nodes in surgical specimens is often inaccurate and that examining greater number of nodes increases the likelihood of proper staging, and that some patients who might benefit from adjuvant therapy are misclassified as node-negative due to incomplete sampling of lymph node. Expand
Risk factors of lateral pelvic lymph node metastasis in advanced rectal cancer
TLDR
Multivariate analysis showed that LPLN status diagnosed by CT, pathological regional lymph node status, tumor location, and tumor differentiation were significant risk factors for LPLn metastasis. Expand
Predicting lymph node metastases in early rectal cancer.
TLDR
Using the risk stratification-model, with the concept of local excision as a macro-biopsy with standby for subsequent immediate radical resection surgery in high-risk cases, could benefit patients by providing the advantages ofLocal excision yet ensuring adequate oncologic outcome. Expand
Increased international normalized ratio level in hepatocellular carcinoma patients with diabetes mellitus.
TLDR
The association of diabetes mellitus (DM) and international normalized ratio (INR) level in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) patients is determined and the INR was increased in HCC patients with DM and these patients should be monitored for coagulation coagulations. Expand
The Influence of the Number of Retrieved Lymph Nodes on Staging and Survival in Patients With Stage II and III Rectal Cancer Undergoing Tumor-Specific Mesorectal Excision
TLDR
The number of lymph nodes retrieved is closely associated with survival and recurrence in patients with stage II rectal cancer and, for more accurate prognostic stratification, at least 22 and 23 nodes seem to be necessary, respectively, for CSS and for RFS. Expand
