Neutrophil-Lymphocyte Ratio Predicts Overall and Recurrence-Free Survival After Liver Transplantation for Hepatocellular Carcinoma Academic Article uri icon


  • The goal of this study is to evaluate whether an elevated neutrophil-lymphocyte ratio (NLR) at the time of diagnosis predicts survival of patients with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) after liver transplantation (LT). We hypothesize that the NLR is predictive of overall survival (OS) and recurrence-free survival (RFS) in patients with HCC who undergo LT.
