Table 4 Multivariate Cox Regression Analysis considering TNM stage (A), lymph node dissemination (B) and T/N ratio 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 T/N ratio <0.97 2.02 (1.03–3.97) 0.041
TNM stage, I vs. II or IIIA 0.42 (0.21–0.81) 0.010
(B) Variable RR (95 % CI) P
Mean T/N ratio <0.97 1.93 (0.98–3.81) 0.058
Lymph node dissemination (N), negative (N0) vs. positive (N1 or N2) 0.44 (0.21–0.95) 0.036
