Abstract
The immune response to tissue damage or infection involves inflammation, a multifaceted biological process distinguished by immune cell activation, mediator secretion, and immune cell recruitment to the site of injury. Several blood-based immune-inflammatory biomarkers with prognostic significance in malignancies have been identified. In this issue of the World Journal of Gastrointestinal Surgery, they examined the prognosis of liver cancer radical resection in relation to preoperative systemic immune-inflammation and nutritional risk indices. Comparing older and younger individuals often reveals compromised nutritional and immunological statuses in the former. Therefore, performing preoperative evaluations of the nutritional status and immunity in geriatric patients is critical. In addition to being a primary treatment modality, radical resection is associated with a significant mortality rate following surgery. Insufficient dietary consumption and an elevated metabolic rate within tumor cells contribute to the increased probability of malnutrition associated with the ailment, consequently leading to a substantial deterioration in prognosis. Recent studies, reinforce the importance of nutritional and immune-inflammatory biomarkers. Prior to surgical intervention, geriatric nutritional risk and systemic immune-inflammatory indices should be prioritized, particularly in older patients with malignant diseases.
