Changes of the tumor lesions and number of leukocytes. The upper graph shows the changes in the sizes of the target lesions. The liver metastasis showed a transient increase in size at the first assessment (3 months), whereas at the next assessment (5 months) it had shrunk in size, fulfilling the definition of early pseudoprogression. A peritoneal nodule emerged in the CT obtained at the 8-month assessment, but the nodule had regressed at the 12-month assessment (delayed pseudoprogression). The lower graph shows the absolute number of neutrophils, monocytes, monocyte and the serum level of lactate dehydrogenase (LDH). The count of lymphocytes showed a tendency towards increase, while that of monocytes was stable, resulting in elevation of the lymphocyte/monocyte ratio
