Purpose. Preoperative elevation of serum C-reactive protein (CRP) is a prognostic indicator for some malignant tumors. We investigated the clinicopathologic importance of an elevated preoperative serum CRP value in gastric carcinoma patients. Methods. We studied the relationship between the preoperative serum CRP value and clinicopathologic characteristics in 204 patients who underwent curative resection of gastric carcinoma. Results. The patients with preoperative CRP elevation had significantly poorer survival than those without CRP elevation (P < 0.0001). According to multivariate analysis, the factors independently associated with an unfavorable prognosis were a high preoperative CRP value (P = 0.024), lymphatic invasion (P = 0.017) and advanced tumor stage (P = 0.016). Conclusion. Preoperative serum CRP elevation can be an independent prognostic indicator in patients with gastric carcinoma.
