Predictive Importance of Platelet to Lymphocyte Ratio and Neutrophil to Lymphocyte Ratio for Pathologic Complete Response in Locally Advanced Breast Cancer Patients Receiving Neoadjuvant Chemotherapy

Author: Caglayan Geredeli, Serdar Arici

Category: Healthcare

Abstract:Background: The peripheral blood platelet\?lymphocyte ratio (PLR) and neutrophil- lymphocyte ratio (NLR) has been proposed as an indicator for evaluating systemic inflammatory responses in cancer patients.
Materials and Method: PLR and NLR was evaluated retrospectively in 167 breast cancer patients treated with the NACT and subsequent curative surgery.
Results: A total of 167 patients were analyzed.The median age of patients was 50 (min 22 \? max 84). 113 patients (67,6%) were stage II and 54 (32,4%) were stage III. Patients with pathologically complete response (pCR) according to Miller-Payne grading system, constituted 55 (32.9%) of all patients 76.3% of patients with pCR had stage IIdisease and of 23.7% had stage III disease. Complete pathologic response rate was statistically significant higher in stage II group than stage III group (p=0.001). In subgroup analysis, pCR rates were 44.2%, 26.9%, 29.7% and 17.6% in HER 2 positive, Luminal B, triple negative and Luminal A groups, respectivly. No statistically significant relationship was found between peripheral blood NLR, PLR before neoadjuvant therapy and pCR in all groups (p = 0.244). However, there was a significant difference between peripheral blood PLR before neoadjuvant therapy in Stage II patients and pCR (p = 0.002)
Conclusion: In peripheral blood NLR and PLR was not effective predictive marker for pCR in patients who will receive NACT for stageII and stage III breast cancer but in peripheral blood low PLR was an effective predictive marker for pCR in patients who will receive NACT for stage III breast cancer.

Introduction

Globally, breast cancer is the most frequently diagnosed malignancy, It is also the leading cause of cancer death in women worldwide(1).

Most patients with non-metastatic breast cancer should receive neoadjuvant chemotherapy therapy (NACT). The goal of treatment is to induce a tumor response before surgery and enable breast conservation. In a meta-analysis, by Mieog JS et al. demonstrated outcomes of NACT; compared with adjuvant chemotherapy reduced risk of radical mastectomy, increased risk of locoregional recurrence and equivalent overall survival and disesase free survival (DFS)(2). Mostly anthracycline based regimens used in neoadjuvant setting but non-anthracycline based regimens may be used. All of patients treated with NACT should undergo surgery.

Pathologic complete response (pCR) is associated with improvement in DFS (3,4). Miller-Payne histopatologic scoring system is used to asses the patholocig response by comparing cancer cellularity in core biopsy (before treatment) with the resected tumor (after treatment). pCR shows reduction in tumor cellularity higher than 90% and no residual invasive cancer(5).

Inflammation and cancer are closely related to each other. As a parameter that can reflect inflammation and host immune reaction, elevated blood neutrophil to lymphocyte ratio (NLR) has been reported to be correlated with poor prognosis in a variety of cancers, one of them breast cancer(6-10). Some studies reported controversial results (11,12).

Recently, platelet-to-lymphocyte ratio (PLR) has become an attractive, convenient, and cost-effective blood-derived prognostic marker as well as an inflammation-related and immune-related prognostic score to evaluate the prognosis of several solid tumors likely NLR. Association between PLR and colorectal, gastric and lung cancer is evaluated in some trials and reported PLR was a predictive marker for poor prognosis(13-17). However, breast cancer and PLR association is controversial.

In this study, we aimed to determine predictive impact of PLR and NLR by comparing with pCR, in patients treated by NACT.

Material and methods

This study was planned as a retrospective single center study. Medical informations wereobtained from the archive files of patients who were treated anthracyclin and taksan-based neoadjuvant chemotherapy between 2010-2017 years, for breast cancer in the medical oncology clinic of Istanbul Okmeydan education and research hospital. Patients without pathology report and laboratory test results were excluded. Disease staging was performed according to TNM 7. The age, menopausal status, pathologic results such as tumor size, histological type, lymph node status, grade, hormonal status, human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2) receptor status and laboratory data were obtained from the archive files of patients.  Neutrophil lymphocyte ratio (NLR) and platelet lymphocyte ratio (PLR) were calculated from complete blood count obtained before first chemotherapy. The histologicalresponse for breast and axilla was assesedaccording to Miller-Payne grading system (MPG) .

Statistical Methods

SPSS 15.0 for Windows program was used for statistical analysis. Descriptive statistics was given as number and percentage for categorical variables, average, standard deviation, minimum, maximum for numeric variables. Two independent group comparisons of the numerical variable were performed with the Mann Whitney U test when normal distribution condition was not achieved. Comparisons of categorical variables ratios in groups were made with Chi Square Analysis. Monte Carlo simulation was applied when conditions were not met. Statistical significance level of alpha was accepted as p <0,05

Results

For this study, 183 patients files who received NACT between 2010 and 2017 years, were scanned. Pathologic responses of 167 patients were reached from archive files. The median age of patients was 50 (min 22 – max 84). 113 (67,6%) patients were stage II and of 54 (32,4%) were stage III. The median age of patients with stage II disease was 49.6 (min 24 – max 84) and of patients with stage III disease was 52.6 (min 27 – max 77). Avarage tumor diameters were 25mm, 22 mm and 31 mm for general, stage II group and stage III group, respectively. There was statistically significant difference of tumor size between stage II and III groups (p=0.018). While, 48.8% of patients were post-menoupausal, 51.2 % of were pre-menoupausal. (Table. 1)

61 pateints (36.5%) were HER 2 positive, 22.1% of were triple negative, 31.1% of luminal B and 10% of luminal A. Histologically, 160 of patients had invasive ductal carcinoma. (Table. 1)

Patients with pathologically complete response (pCR) according to Miller-Payne grading system, constituted 55 (32.9%) of all patients (Table. 1). 76.3% of patients with pCR had stage IIdisease and of 23.7% had stage II disease. Complete pathologic response rate was statistically significant higher in stage II group than stage III group (p=0.001). In subgroup analysis, pCR rates were 44.2%, 26.9%, 29.7% and 17.6% in HER 2 positive, Luminal B, triple negative and Luminal A groups, respectivly. (Table. 2)

When pCR patients and non-pCR patients were evaluated in terms of NLR and PLR, There were not statistically significant differences between the two groups in NLR (2.46) in Stage II patients with PCR and NLR (2.94) in stage II patients without pCR (p = 0.244 (Table 3). There were statistically significant differences between the two groups in PLR (144) in Stage II patients with PCR and PLR (169) in stage II patients without pCR (p = 0.002) (Table 3).

There were not statistically significant differences between the two groups in NLR (2.51) in Stage III patients with PCR and NLR (2.69) in stage III patients without pCR (p = 0.595) (Table 3). There were not statistically significant differences between the two groups in PLR (148) in Stage III patients with PCR and PLR (139) in stage III patients without pCR (p = 0.384) (Table 3).

In subgroup analysis, there were not statistically significant differences between the NLR and pCR, PLR and pCR  in the HER2 positive group, the triple negative group and in the luminal B group  (Table 3).

Discussion

This was a retrospective analysis to determine the predictive effect of NLR and PLR in patients with breast cancer treated by NACT.

In the present study, patients with pathologically complete response (pCR) according to Miller-Payne grading system, constituted 55 (32.9%) of all patients (table1) and pCR rates were 44.2%, 26.9%, 29.7% and 17.6% in HER 2 positive, Luminal B, triple negative and Luminal A groups, respectively. Liedtke C et al reported that pathological response of 1118 women with breast cancer who received NACT. Overall, 163 patients (15%) experienced pCR compared with 945 patients (85%) with residual disease. In multivariate analysis, increased pCR rates were observed for patients with triple negative breast cancer (TNBC) compared with non-TNBC (3). von Minckwitz G et al described pCR as a predictive marker for DFS in patients who treated with NACT (4).

In a trial of Noh et al, were detected and showed poorer disease-specific survival patients with elevated pretreatment NLR than patients without elevated NLR (18). Ery?lmaz MK et al study showed no relationship between the pCR and pretreatment NLR values. (19) However in Cihan YB et al study, there was no effect of NLR on prognosis in patients with breast cancer who underwent surgery and received adjuvant systemic therapy and radiotherapy (11). In our study, there was not statistically significant correlation between pretreatement NLR value and pCR.

In a meta-analysis included 24 studies with a total of 13719 patients with colorectal cancer, were reported that increased PLR predicated a worse OS and DFS in patients who underwent surgery, and this prognostic role also shown both in metastatic and nonmetastatic patients (13). In another meta-analysis involving a total of 13 trials, was showed a high PLR significantly predicted poor OS in Caucasian populations, patients with gastric cancer receiving chemotherapy and patients at advanced stage (15). Similarly, in another meta-analysis involving patients with lung cancer, the data showed that elevated PLR predicted poor OS and poor DFS /PFS (17). Yuka Asano et al showed that  for patients with breast cancer treated with NACT, a low PLR indicated high chemotherapy sensitivity, suggesting that PLR could serve as a predictive marker of the therapeutic effect of NACT. (20) In our study, there was statistically significant correlation between low PLR and pCR in patients with stage 2 disease. Breast cancer treated with NACT.

There were limitations in our study. First, we could not offer DFS in our study because of the inability to reach median time. But there is proven correlation between DFS and pCR for this reason we presented correlation between pCR and NLR and PLR. Second limitation of our study was low number of patients in groups for subgroup analysis. Therefore additional large trials are needed to correct subgroup analysis.

Conclusion

In conclusion peripheral blood  NLR and PLR was not effective predictive marker for pCR in patients who will receive NACT for stage II and stage III breast cancer but in peripheral blood low PLR was an effective predictive marker for pCR in patients who will receive NACT for stage 2 breast cancer. The predictive utility of PLR might help to selection of patients for using NACT
