Introduction: Neutrophil/lymphocyte ratio (NLR) is an indicator of systemic inflammation and has been proven to be associated with an increased risk of extravesical disease, decreased cancer specific survival and overall survival in bladder cancer patients. A large proportion of healthy African Americans have a WBC count that is persistently lower than the normal range defined for individuals of European ancestry, this condition has been called "benign ethnic neutropenia". The purpose of our study was to determine if NLR was different in patients of African ancestry (AA) vs European ancestry (EA) across different tumor grades and stages at the time of transurethral resection of bladder tumor(s) (TURBT)...

The neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio (NLR) is an inflammation marker that has prognostic value for various tumors, but its prognostic value in urothelial carcinoma (UC) remains controversial. This meta-analysis investigated the prognostic value of NLR in UC. A systematic search was performed on PubMed, ISI Web of Science, and Embase for studies focusing on the association between NLR and clinical features or prognosis of UC and published until November 2016. Prognostic outcomes and clinical features were collected and analyzed...

Although neutrophils are a histologic hallmark of psoriasis, it is unclear whether neutrophils are simply effector cells or drive pathogenesis. A recent psoriasis study with murine models evaluated various chemokines, lipids, and cytokines proposing that neutrophils are key players in positive feedback loops perpetuating the disease.(1) Additionally, when neutrophils are depleted in pustular psoriasis, the disease drastically improves.(2) There is mounting evidence supporting the use of neutrophil to lymphocyte ratio (NLR) as a marker of inflammation in active psoriasis...

The prognosis of patients with gastroesophageal junction (GOJ) adenocarcinoma depends mainly on the clinical staging, as described by the new AJCC8 (American Joint Committee on Cancer 8th edition). Evidence suggests that peripheral blood neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio (NLR) may be of prognostic significance in patients with upper gastrointestinal cancers. We examined the prognostic significance of NLR in the era of the new AJCC8 staging system. In this single-centre cohort study, retrospective data on patients with operable GOJ adenocarcinoma treated with perioperative chemotherapy were analysed...

Chronic inflammation is a well-known epidemiologic factor of ovarian clear cell carcinomas (OCCC), but has an uncertain role in prognosis. We developed a systemic inflammation score (SIS) based on preoperative serum albumin and neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio (NLR) for predicting progression-free survival (PFS) and overall survival (OS) in OCCC patients. A retrospective review was performed in 155 patients with OCCC undergoing primary debulking and chemotherapy at a single institute between 1995 and 2010. Cox regression models were fitted to analyze the effect of prognostic factors on PFS and OS...

BACKGROUND: Regional anesthesia has anti-inflammatory effects. Recent studies suggest that regional anesthesia might improve the survival of patients with cancer. We hypothesized that the use of a scalp block (SB) during craniotomy for glioblastoma (GB) decreases the postoperative systemic and local inflammatory response and extend their survival. METHODS: This retrospective study included 119 patients with GB who underwent tumor resection. We divided patients into 2 groups based on the use of SB during surgery...

A differential diagnosis of testicular torsion and epididymitis has serious importance for testicular health. In emergency conditions, if testicular torsion goes unnoticed and epididymo-orchitis is diagnosed, organ loss may occur. This study aimed to evaluate the usefulness of haematologic parameters for the diagnosis of both testicular torsion and epididymo-orchitis and for differential diagnosis of these two diseases. Patients were divided into three groups as those undergoing surgery for testicular torsion, those receiving medical treatment for epididymitis and a healthy control group...

Recently, neutrophil/lymphocyte ratio (NLR) has been proved to be a useful indicator of inflammation and cardiovascular risk. Brachial-ankle pulse wave velocity is an indicator for early atherosclerotic changes. It is unknown whether NLR differs in subtypes of hypertension, and little research has been performed on the relationship between NLR and arteriosclerosis in subtypes of hypertension. The purpose of this article was to investigate their relationship. A total of 217 consecutive patients with hypertension and 132 persons without hypertension were included...

INTRODUCTION: The neutrophil lymphocyte ratio(NLR) is a marker of systemic inflammation. We hypothesized that admission NLR is related to mortality and that epinephrine application during resuscitation influences NLR in patients after successful resuscitation from out of hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA). METHODS: This retrospective cohort study is based on a registry including all OHCA patients who had a presumed cardiac cause of cardiac arrest and achieved sustained ROSC prior to admission between 2005 and 2014...

Neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio (NLR), platelet-to-lymphocyte ratio (PLR) and platelet count (PC) were shown to be prognostic in several solid malignancies. We analysed 603 R0 resected patients to assess whether NLR, PLR and PC correlate with other well-known prognostic factors and survival of patients with colorectal cancer (CRC). Receiver operating characteristic (ROC) curve analysis was performed to define cut-off values for high and low ratios of these indices. Univariate and multivariate analysis were used to determine the prognostic value of NLR, PLR and PC for overall and cancer-related survival...
