Table 3 Multivariate analysis for complete response (CR)

From: Circulating lymphocyte is an important determinant of the effectiveness of preoperative radiotherapy in advanced rectal cancer

Variables Odds ratio (95% CI) p value
N stage: N1 vs N0 0.041 0.034-1.138 0.067
Clinical Stage: 2 vs 3/4 6.864 0.541-9.354 0.193
Circumferential extent: 60%> vs 60% < 0.560 0.396-1.338 0.332
CRT vs RT 2.313 0.855-2.887 0.156
Lymphocytes(%): 25.7% ≤ vs 25.7% > 4.000 1.057-4.455 0.032
  1. Five variables, N stage, Clinical stage, chemotherapy, circumferential extent, % lymphocytes which may have possible correlation with CR rate and their independency were analyzed with stepwise logistic regression analysis using JMP software 8.0.
