Hemoglobin, Neutrophil to Lymphocyte Ratio and Platelet Count Improve Prognosis Prediction in Nasopharyngeal Carcinoma
RATIONALE In patients with nasopharyngeal carcinoma, there is sometimes a discrepancy between actual clinical outcome and TNM stages because it is an anatomy-based system in which functional factors are not concerned. Hemoglobin, neutrophil to lymphocyte ratio and platelet count were proved to improve prognosis prediction of TNM staging system in our previous retrospective study. PURPOSE To validate that the prognostic index based on complete blood count and TNM system had higher prediction efficiency on survival in nasopharyngeal carcinoma than TNM system alone.Start: August 2014
