Prognostic markers have gained considerable attention in gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GISTs).
To improve the prognostic prediction of GISTs, we designed this study.
We conducted the first investigation of the prognostic value of Onodera’s Prognostic Nutritional Index (OPNI) for GISTs.
In this study, the recurrence-free survival, and the receiver operator characteristic analysis of neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio (NLR) and the platelet-to-lymphocyte ratio (PLR), OPNI, and Ki-67 index, and the correlation between tumor size and NLR, PLR, OPNI and Ki-67 index were detected.
Univariate and multivariate analyses both identified the OPNI as an independent prognostic marker.
The preoperative OPNI could be a prognostic marker for GISTs.
We hope that we could find a valuable parameter for predicting the prognosis of GISTs using peripheral blood samples.
