TI  - Prognostic Value of Albumin/Globulin Ratio in Patients with Upper Tract
      Urothelial Carcinoma Patients Treated with Radical Nephroureterectomy.
PG  - 2329-2334
AB  - BACKGROUND/AIM: We investigated the prognostic role of the albumin/globulin ratio
      (AGR) in patients with upper tract urothelial carcinoma (UTUC) undergoing radical
      nephroureterectomy (RNU). PATIENTS AND METHODS: AGR was calculated as follows:
      AGR=serum albumin/(serum total protein-serum albumin). Associations of
      preoperative AGR with disease-free (DFS) and overall (OS) survival were assessed 
      in 105 patients with UTUC undergoing RNU. RESULTS: Patients with preoperative AGR
      <1.24 and >/=1.24 were classified into the low (n=46, 44%) and high (n=59, 56%)
      groups, respectively. The 5-year DFS and OS were 77% and 78%, respectively. On
      multivariate analysis, high preoperative AGR was an independent predictor for
      both better DFS (hazard ratio(HR)=0.34, p=0.038) and OS (HR=0.24, p=0.006). The
      5-year DFS and OS were significantly longer in the high-AGR group than in the
      low-AGR group (90% vs. 60%; 89% vs. 65%, both p<0.001). CONCLUSION: The AGR has
      prognostic value in patients with UTUC undergoing RNU.
