Description
Background : The C-reactive protein (CRP)–albumin ratio (CAR) was reported as a prognostic factor of resectable hepatocellular carcinoma. The aim of this study was to analyse the significance of CAR in resectable pancreatic cancer. Patients and Methods : 163 patients with curative resection for pancreatic cancer were enrolled in this retrospective study. Cases of non-curative resection were excluded. The CAR was calculated with the preoperative plasma CRP and albumin values, with a cut-off value of 0.06, as calculated in a previous report. Results : Patients in the low CAR group had significantly better overall survival (OS) and disease-free survival (DFS) compared with the high CAR group (P < 0.05). On multivariate analysis, for high CAR, CA19-9 > 300 U / ml and receipt of adjuvant chemotherapy were independent risk factors for OS and DFS. High CAR was significantly associated with advanced T stage. Conclusion : The CAR might be a prognostic factor for patients with resectable pancreatic cancer.
