Özet

Purpose: Metastatic gastric cancer (mGC) is linked with worse prognosis, and tools are needed for predicting disease course and chemotherapy response. The value of the change in the neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio (NLR) during first-line palliative chemotherapy on the outcomes in patients with mGC is not fully explained. This study aimed to investigate the importance of changes in NLR in predicting disease course and chemotherapy response in mGC.
