0.001). In a subgroup analysis according to primary site, a high NLR also correlated with a lower PFS and OS, except in oropharyngeal cancer, where a high NLR only exhibited a trend towards lower survival. In a multivariate analysis, a high NLR remained an independent prognostic factor for PFS and OS. Conclusion: Head and neck cancer tends to be mo...
albumin and HDL were lower in metastatic patients. We found that platelet, PCT, NLR and PLR, albumin, HDL, and CRP levels aided in lung cancer diagnosis and the detection of late-stage disease. Furthermore, these inflammatory and biological markers are thought to be particularly useful in following the severity of lung cancer.
The neutrophil/lymphocyte ratio (NLR), platelet/lymphocyte ratio (PLR), and red cell distribution width (RDW) are markers of systemic inflammation with prognostic significance for cancers. The aim of the study was to investigate the predictive significance of pretreatment values of NLR, PLR, and RDW in cervical cancer. We retrospectively analyzed 5...

NLR is a valuable clinical marker in preoperative estimation as well as prognosis prediction for patients with primary small-cell carcinoma of the esophagus.

Objective To determine whether neutrophil/lymphocyte ratio (NLR) differed between patients with isolated coronary artery disease (CAD), isolated coronary artery ectasia (CAE), coronary slow flow and normal coronary anatomy. Methods Patients who underwent coronary angiography were consecutively enrolled into one of four groups: CAD, coronary slow fl...

We found that the MPV value may serve as a marker of the absence of acute-phase disease, and the NLR level as a marker of the presence of such disease, in patients with RA. More detailed analysis of disease activity is required to further explain the associations of the markers described above with disease activity.

A high degree of correlation was determined among albuminuria, glomerular filtration rate and NLR levels. These results may suggest the notion that diabetic nephropathy involves an inflammatory process.

The main aim of this diagnostic case-control study of 136 patients with ovarian cysts (44 patients with ovarian torsion and 92 controls) was to determine the diagnostic value of haematologic inflammatory markers (neutrophil/lymphocyte ratio [NLR], red cell distribution width [RDW] and platelet distribution width [PDW]) for torsioned ovarian cysts. ...
Ocular immunology and inflammation
Patients with AMD have higher NLR compared with controls, and NLR correlates with disease severity. NLR may be used as a biomarker of inflammation in AMD.

HAIC is a candidate for treatment of advanced HCC, and NLR may be a useful prognostic indicator for suitability of HAIC.
