Abstract

Objective: Neutrophil-lymphocyte ratio (NLR) is a well-known, cost-effective biomarker of inflammatory conditions, and its protumor effect has been shown in different types of cancers. In this study, we aimed to evaluate the relationship between blood parameters, especially NLR, with the risk of progression and recurrence in non-muscle-invasive bladder tumors (NMIBT).
