ABSTRACT: The objective of this study was to investigate the impact of neutrophil–lymphocyte ratio (NLR) and the platelet–lymphocyte ratio (PLR) on the postoperative complication and long-term outcomes in patients with resectable gastric cancer (GC). A total of 377 patients who underwent curative resection for GC were enrolled. In logistic analysis, PLR (p = 0.09) was independently associated with the incidence of postoperative complication. The results of multivariate survival analysis showed the NLR and PLR were introduced as prognostic factors for operable GC, the NLR may represent a useful prognostic index for the prediction of overall survival (OS) in advanced GC (p = 0.021).Biomarkers 06/2014; · 1.88 Impact Factor
