Preoperative C-Reactive Protein/Albumin Ratio Predicts Prognosis of Patients after Curative Resection for Gastric Cancer.

Liu X, Sun X, Liu J, Kong P, Chen S, Zhan Y, Xu D - Transl Oncol (2015)

Bottom Line: An elevated preoperative C-reactive protein/albumin (CRP/Alb) ratio has been reported to be associated with a poor prognosis for hepatocellular carcinoma.However, several other systemic inflammation-based prognostic scores (neutrophil lymphocyte ratio, platelet lymphocyte ratio and systemic immune-inflammation index, Glasgow Prognostic Score, modified Glasgow prognostic score, and high-sensitivity modified Glasgow prognostic score) were not.In addition, the CRP/Alb ratio had a higher area under the curve value (0.625) compared with several other systemic inflammation-based prognostic scores (P < .001).

f0010: The predictive ability of the seven inflammation-based prognostic scores was compared by ROC curves.

Mentions: Considering correlations among the markers of the systemic inflammatory response, we constructed ROC curves to further assess their discrimination ability (Figure 2). The discrimination ability of the CRP/Alb ratio, as assessed by AUC, was 0.625 (95% CI: 0.572-0.678; P < .001), which was higher than that of other markers (Table 4).
