Özet

BackgroundStudies suggest that tumour-infiltrating lymphocytes (TILs) and inflammation markers have independent roles in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), but the relationship between the two pronostic factors remains unclear. In this study, we investigated TILs and inflammation markers in with patients advanced stage NSCLC and assessed the association of their levels with prognosis.
