Xiaowen Zhang, Chen Han, Hongwei Wang, Xinghong Sun, Xin Dou, Xueying He, Di Wu, Shanmei Shen, Dalong Zhu, Xinlin Zhang, and Yan Bi

and availability limit routine MR application in daily practice. Neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio (NLR), calculated by dividing the absolute count of neutrophils by that of lymphocytes in the peripheral blood, is easy to obtain. NLR proves to be a good

Prognostic role of lymphocyte-to-monocyte ratio in pancreatic neuroendocrine neoplasms

Wentao Zhou, Tiantao Kuang, Xu Han, Wenqi Chen, Xuefeng Xu, Wenhui Lou, and Dansong Wang

the regional inflammatory responses in tumor microenvironment. Quite a few studies proved that preoperative systemic inflammation markers, such as neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio (NLR) and platelet-to-lymphocyte ratio (PLR), were associated with relapse

and worsened prognosis. Neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio (NLR), one of the indicators of inflammation and immunology, is easily measured via peripheral blood sampling and is reportedly useful as a prognosis index of various types of cancer ( 12 , 13
