Abstract

Purpose: Non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) is the most common cancer and the leading cause of cancer-related deaths worldwide. Inflammatory markers, such as C-reactive protein (CRP), neutrophil-lymphocyte ratio (NLR), lymphocyte-monocyte ratio and platelet-lymphocyte ratio (PLR), serve as indexes for the immune status of the host and the degree of tumor progression. In this study, we evaluated NLR and PLR values in early stage lung cancer patients before and after surgery and its correlation with clinical variables and survival.
