Table 4 Correlation of the CRP/Alb ratio with other nutrition and/or inflammation-based prognostic scores

From: A novel inflammation-based prognostic score in esophageal squamous cell carcinoma: the C-reactive protein/albumin ratio

Characteristic No. of Patients (%) Pvalue
CRP/Alb ≤ 0.095 CRP/Alb > 0.095  
mGPS    <0.001*
0 276 (100) 69 (46.9)  
1 0 70 (47.6)  
2 0 8 (5.4)  
PNI 53.8 (41.9 - 70.6) 50.4 (33.5 - 59.6) <0.001*
NLR 1.9 (0.5 - 28.0) 3.2 (1.2 - 27.7) <0.001*
PLR 111.5 (0.8 – 990.0) 147.1 (55.2 – 830.0) <0.001*
CRP (mg/L) 1.2 (0.1 – 4.5) 10.6 (3.9 – 233.0) <0.001*
WBC (×10^9/L) 6.7 (1.7 – 15.7) 8.4 (3.8 – 23.9) <0.001*
Albumin (g/L) 43.8 (36.1 – 54.6) 41.7 (29.5 – 48.6) <0.001*
BMI (Kg/ m2) 21.5 (14.9 – 30.1) 20.6 (13.4 – 32.2) 0.001*
  1. *Statistically significant differences of distribution between patients with the CRP/Alb ratio ≤ 0.095 and patients with the CRP/Alb ratio > 0.095.
  2. Abbreviation: CRP/Alb the C-reactive protein/Albumin ratio, mGPS the modified Glasgow Prognostic Score, PNI the prognostic nutritional index, NLR the neutrophil lymphocyte ratio, PLR the platelet lymphocyte ratio, CRP C-reactive protein, WBC white blood cell, BMI body mass index.
