Systemic Inflammation Predicts All-Cause Mortality: A Glasgow Inflammation Outcome Study

Markers of the systemic inflammatory response, including C-reactive protein and albumin, as well as neutrophil, lymphocyte and platelet counts have been shown to be prognostic of survival in patients with cancer. The aim of the present study was to examine the prognostic relationship between these markers of the systemic inflammatory response and all-cause, cancer, cardiovascular and cerebrovascular mortality in a large incidentally sampled cohort.
