New Evidence Points to NLR as an Important Prognostic Tool

While recent studies have concluded that the neutrophils to lymphocytes ratio or NLR may be a poor indicator of cancer, new research suggests that NLR may be a helpful prognostic tool with respect to developing mesothelioma treatment protocols. The study published in Oncotarget conducted an analysis of 10 other studies which covered the cases of 1,500 mesothelioma patients.

NLR is a marker for inflammation in the body and therefore NLR provides a snapshot of the overall health of the immune system, a function vital to fight malignant cancer cells and to fight against new tumors. Improved treatment strategies could be key in extending survival times or quality of life during those survival times. NLR has also shown promise in helping approving mesothelioma patients for clinical trials.
