Methods: A systemic literature search of PubMed, EMBASE, the Web of Science, the Cochrane Library, China National Knowledge Infrastructure (CNKI), Wanfang, VIP and SinoMed databases was performed from January 1, 1966 to April 15, 2019, to identify potential studies that assessed the prognostic role of the pretreatment SII in NSCLC. The hazard ratio (HR) and 95% confidence interval (CI) were combined to evaluate the correlation of the pretreatment SII with overall survival (OS), disease-free survival (DFS), progression-free survival (PFS) and cancer-specific survival (CSS) in NSCLC patients.
Results: A total of 9 studies involving 2,441 patients were eventually included. An elevated pretreatment SII indicated significantly poorer OS (HR =1.88, 95% CI: 1.50–2.36; P},
