Abstract

Purpose: The neutrophil-lymphocyte ratio (NLR), platelet-lymphocyte ratio (PLR) and lymphocytopenia are markers of poor prognosis in lung cancer patients. The aim of this trial is evaluate the prognostic significance of basal NLR, PLR and lymphocytopenia in patients with extensive stage (ES) small cell lung cancer(SCLC).
