Table 3 Multivariate Cox Regression Analysis considering TNM stage (A), lymph node dissemination (B) and telomere length for 125 patients with non-small cell lung cancer

From: Telomere length and telomerase activity in non-small cell lung cancer prognosis: clinical usefulness of a specific telomere status

(A) Variable HR (95 % CI) P
Mean telomere length in NSCLCs <7.29 Kb 2.70 (1.27–5.76) 0.010
TNM stage, I vs. II or IIIA 0.34 (0.17–0.67) 0.002
(B) Variable RR (95 % CI) P
Mean telomere length in NSCLCs <7.29 Kb 2.26 (1.07–4.76) 0.032
Lymph node dissemination (N), negative (N0) vs. positive (N1 or N2) 0.41 (0.19–0.88) 0.021
