Table 4 Contribution of various potential prognostic factors to disease free survival by Cox regression analysis in colon cancer patients

From: Increased expression of CD133 and reduced dystroglycan expression are strong predictors of poor outcome in colon cancer patients

  Hazard 95% confidence  
Variable ratio interval p value
Tumor grade* 1.438 0.801-2.583 0.223
pT parameter# 2.027 0.806-5.094 0.133
Node status** 3.000 1.532-5.876 0.001
CD133§ 2.386 1.365-4.171 0.002
Dystroglycan§§ 1.629 0.950-2.794 0.076
  1. The risk ratio is given as: * higher (G3) versus lower grade (G1/2); # higher (pT3/4) versus lower (pT1/2) pT parameter; ** node-positive vs node-negative; § positive vs negative and §§ negative vs positive.
