Abstract BackgroundThe platelet‐to‐lymphocyte ratio (PLR) has been found to predict clinical outcomes in borderline ovarian tumors and the other genital neoplasms. However, its prognostic value in patients with ovarian cancer remains controversial. The aim of this study was to assess its prognostic value in ovarian cancer.

According to the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports, Non-Hispanic blacks have the highest age-adjusted rates of obesity (47.8%) followed by Hispanics (42.5%), non-Hispanic whites (32.6%), and non-Hispanic Asians (10.8%).
