From: Bax expression measured by AQUAnalysis is an independent prognostic marker in oral squamous cell carcinoma

  Univariate Multivariate
  Hazard Ratio (95% C.I.) p-value Hazard Ratio (95% C.I.) p-value
Bax 0.237 (0.078 - 0.721) 0.005 0.236 (0.076 - 0.731) 0.012
pT Status 2.549 (1.022 - 6.357) 0.043 3.261 (1.234 - 8.618) 0.017
pN Status 7.470 (2.467 - 22.611) <0.001 7.344 (2.090 - 25.803) 0.002
  1. Pathological T-stage and N-stage were included in the multivariate analysis based on their acknowledged clinical significance in OSCC and their significant association with DSS in univariate analysis.
