Özet

Background: Chronic kidney disease (CKD) tends to progress to end-stage renal disease without any intervention. Neutrophil/lymphocyte (N/L) ratio may be indicative of an underlying inflammatory state. We aimed to investigate the role of N/L ratio for prediction of progression to dialysis in patients with stage 4 CKD.
