Objective This study investigated whether the inflammation-based Glasgow prognostic score (GPS) predicted the prognosis of patients with endometrial cancer (EC) in terms of progression-free survival (PFS) and overall survival (OS). Study design Pretreatment GPS was examined to determine the correlations with recurrence and survival in 431 patients with EC. Statistical analyses were performed using the Mann–Whitney U test. PFS and OS were analyzed using the Kaplan–Meier method. Cox's proportional hazard regression was used for univariate and multivariate analyses. Results Median PFS and OS were 49.7 and 52.7 months, respectively. The follow-up range was 1 to 140 months. Kaplan–Meier analysis revealed that patients with EC cancer and high GPS (GPS 2) had a shorter PFS and OS than those with lower GPS (GPS 0 + 1) (PFS: P < 0.001; OS; P < 0.001). On multivariate analysis, GPS (GPS 2) was an independent predictor of both recurrence (P < 0.001) and survival (P < 0.001) for all cases of EC. Conclusion GPS can be useful as an indicator of poor prognosis in patients with EC.
