Neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio (NLR) recently demonstrated predictive value for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) recurrence after thermal ablation. Microwave ablation (MWA) has been shown to induce changes in the immune landscape after HCC treatment. This study aims at identifying predictors of local tumor progression (LTP) and post-treatment NLR kinetics after MWA.

Abstract

Neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio (NLR) recently demonstrated predictive value for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) recurrence after thermal ablation. Microwave ablation (MWA) has been shown to induce changes in the immune landscape after HCC treatment. This study aims at identifying predictors of local tumor progression (LTP) and post-treatment NLR kinetics after MWA.
