such as Erythrocyte sedimentation rate, Haemoglobin and albumin on the survival of patients with Hodgkin's lymphoma.
Univariate analysis of categorical prognostic factors
was performed using the Kaplan-Meier method and a log rank test, whereas a Cox proportional hazards model was used for continuous variables.

for assessing HCC patients following curative resection, particularly for patients without microvascular invasion.
for outcome to salvage HDCT were initially reported on small number of patients at individual centers treated with one specific regimen limiting the generalizability of the findings.
Univariate analysis identified Karnofsky PS (p = 0.005), liver metastasis (p = 0.01), and NLR [greater than or equal to] 5 (p = 0.005) as significant prognostic factors
for poor OS.
We also analyzed the association between maximum standardized uptake values ([SUV.sub.max]) and prognostic factors
based on final pathology.

"Severe bulging is, however, a sign that is difficult to miss even for a less experienced otoscopist, and therefore this prognostic factor
as an indication for antimicrobial treatment could be easily applied into clinical practice."
