The aim of the present study was to determine the prognostic value of the Glasgow prognostic score (GPS) in endometrial carcinoma (EC). Patients with EC who underwent surgery at the Shimane University Hospital between January 1997 and December 2013 were enrolled (n=118). The associations between pretreatment GPS and clinical parameters, including age, histological type, International Federation of Gynecology and Obstetrics stage, tumor grade, carbohydrate antigen 19-9 and carcinoembryonic antigen levels, progression-free survival (PFS), and overall survival (OS), were investigated...

BACKGROUND: Anemia and malnutrition are frequently observed during lung cancer development, and the associations between them have been researched. However, no study concerning the utility of routinely used nutritional screening tools in predicting anemia in lung cancer has been performed. OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study was to assess the usefulness of routinely used malnutrition screening tools in predicting anemia in lung cancer patients. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Eighty-five male patients were recruited to this study...

PURPOSE: Previous studies reported promising efficacy for celecoxib in the treatment of cancer cachexia. We designed this study to test the hypothesis that combination therapy with megestrol acetate (MA) plus celecoxib is superior to MA alone. METHODS: Ninety eligible gastrointestinal cancer patients randomly received either MA 320 mg/day plus placebo (arm1) or MA 320 mg/day plus celecoxib 200 mg/day (arm2). Patients were evaluated at baseline, then 1 and 2 months after starting interventions...

The aim of the present study was to investigate the prognostic value of the C-reactive protein-to-albumin ratio (CAR) and compare it with other inflammation-based prognostic scores (Glasgow prognostic score, modified Glasgow prognostic score, neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio, platelet-to-lymphocyte ratio, prognostic nutritional index and prognostic index) in patients with esophageal squamous cell cancer (ESCC). A database of 116 patients with primary ESCC who underwent treatment at the Division of Surgical Oncology at Nagasaki University Hospital between January 2007 and August 2014 was retrospectively reviewed and the correlations between CAR and overall survival (OS) were investigated...

BACKGROUND: Discordant assessments of Glasgow Coma Score (GCS) following trauma can result in inappropriate triage. This study sought to determine the reliability of prehospital GCS compared to emergency department (ED) GCS. METHODS: We conducted a retrospective review of traumas from 01/2000 to 12/2015 at a Level-1 pediatric trauma center. We evaluated reliability between field and ED GCS using Pearson's correlation. We ascertained the difference between prehospital and ED GCS (delta-GCS)...

PURPOSES: This study aimed to clarify the prognosis of polytrauma patients presenting to the emergency department (ED) with a Glasgow Coma Scale score (GCS) of 3. METHODS: A trauma registry system has been established at our institution since 2009. The current study reviewed patients in the registry who presented to the ED with a GCS of 3 from January 2011 to December 2015. Surviving and non-surviving patients were compared to identify the prognostic factors of patient survival...

BACKGROUND: The aim of this manuscript was to explore the molecular basis and identify novel biomarkers for the diagnosis and prognosis of patients with chronic disorder of consciousness. METHODS: A coupled isobaric tag for relative and absolute quantitation-based approach was used to screen differentially expressed proteins (DEPs) between patients with chronic disorder of consciousness and healthy individuals. Candidate proteins were identified and measured. The Coma Recovery Scale-Revised (CRS-R) score was used to quantify the severity, and long-term recovery was assessed by Glasgow Outcome Scale (GOS)...

BACKGROUND: S100A12 is related to acute brain injury and inflammation. We investigated the clinical prognostic value of serum S100A12 in patients with severe traumatic brain injury (sTBI). METHODS: Serum S100A12, S100B, C-reactive protein (CRP), interleukin-6 (IL-6), tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-α) concentrations were measured in 102 healthy controls and 102 sTBI patients. We recorded 30-day mortality and in-hospital major adverse events (IMAEs) including acute lung injury, acute traumatic coagulopathy, progressive hemorrhagic injury and posttraumatic cerebral infarction...

BACKGROUND: In spontaneous intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH), black hole sign has been proposed as a promising imaging marker that predicts hematoma expansion in patients with ICH. The aim of our study was to investigate whether admission CT black hole sign predicts hematoma growth in patients with ICH. METHODS: From July 2011 till February 2016, patients with spontaneous ICH who underwent baseline CT scan within 6 h of symptoms onset and follow-up CT scan were recruited into the study...

Perforated gastric cancer is relatively rare disease. Between 2006 and 2016, we treated 8 cases with perforative gastric cancer. These cases accounted for 15%of the 53 cases with the upper gastrointestinal tract perforated cases. The median age of perforated gastric cancer case was 66(37-80)years, which was significantly higher than that of perforated benign upper gastrointestinal ulcer(55, 12-97 years)(p=0.033). These patients were divided into 2 groups; 3 cases who died up to 3 months as poor prognosis group and 5 cases who survived more than 4 months as good prognosis group...

The prognostic relevance of commonly used composite inflammation-based scores remains severely underdiscussed in pancreatic cancer (PC), especially for advanced PC. In this retrospective cohort study, we aimed to discuss the association between multiple inflammatory scores and the short-term overall survival (OS) of advanced pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) patients. A total of 66 histologically confirmed PDAC patients were retrospectively analyzed. A multivariate Cox proportional hazards model was used to explore the association between 6 commonly used inflammatory scores measured right after diagnosis, Glasgow Prognostic Score (GPS), Modified Glasgow Prognostic Score (mGPS), neutrophil to lymphocyte ratio (NLR), platelet to lymphocyte ratio (PLR), prognostic index (PI), prognostic nutritional index (PNI), and the short-term OS of advanced PDAC...

BACKGROUND: To investigate the prognostic value of preoperative systemic inflammation markers in upper tract urothelial carcinoma (UTUC). METHODS: A total of 1137 patients who underwent radical nephroureterectomy with bladder cuff excision at 9 institutions from 2004 to 2015, were retrospectively reviewed. The Glasgow prognostic score (GPS), modified GPS (mGPS), neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio (NLR), and platelet-to-lymphocyte ratio (PLR) for each patient were calculated...

OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to create prediction models for outcome parameters by decision tree analysis based on clinical and laboratory data in patients with aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage (aSAH). METHODS The database consisted of clinical and laboratory parameters of 548 patients with aSAH who were admitted to the Neurocritical Care Unit, University Hospital Zurich. To examine the model performance, the cohort was randomly divided into a derivation cohort (60% [n = 329]; training data set) and a validation cohort (40% [n = 219]; test data set)...

Introduction and Objective: The combination of C-reactive protein and albumin, the Glasgow Prognostic Score (GPS), had independent prognostic value in patients with varying cancers, except for upper tract urothelial carcinoma (UTUC). The aim of this study was to describe the relationship between GPS and survival in patients with UTUC after adjustment for other prognostic factors. Materials and Methods: We queried 2 UTUC databases. Retrospective clinical series on patients with localized UTUC managed by nephroureterectomy with bladder cuff, for whom data from the Yamaguchi Uro-Oncology Group and Osaka Medical College registry, including age, presence of bladder cancer, pT stage, lymphovascular invasion, C-reactive protein (CRP) and albumin, were analyzed...

Anemia is common in colorectal cancer (CRC) but its relationships with tumor characteristics, systemic inflammation, and survival have not been well characterized. In this study, blood hemoglobin levels and erythrocyte mean corpuscular volume (MCV) levels were measured in two independent cohorts of 148 CRC patients and 208 CRC patients, and their correlation with patient and tumor characteristics, systemic inflammatory markers (modified Glasgow Prognostic Score: mGPS; serum levels of thirteen cytokines, C-reactive protein, albumin), and survival were analyzed...
