We collected information about age, sex, primary tumor site, NLR, serum albumin levels, serum LDH levels, ascites parameters (glucose, albumin, LDH, coenocyte, monocyte, and coenocyte-to-monocyte ratio), the serum-ascites albumin gradient, and ascites-serum LDH ratios.
Lipids originating from the lamellar bodies in the stratum gradulosum, secrete into the epidermis, acting in a similar way to waterproof mortar between the coenocytes (flattered cells) of the horny layer This chemical and PH balance maintains the thickness of the epidermis (Cork, M.J et al 2009).
