Table 5 Combination of carcinoembryonic antigen, age supplementary to UICCa staging system as predictors of colorectal cancer for cancer overall survival by Cox regression analysis

From: Preoperative serum carcinoembryonic antigen, albumin and age are supplementary to UICC staging systems in predicting survival for colorectal cancer patients undergoing surgical treatment

Parameters Regression coefficient Standard error Hazard ratio (95% CI) P value
UICCa stage (III&IV/I&II) 1.238 0.099 3.45(2.84–4.18) <0.001
UICCa Stage III&IV and serum CEAb ≥5 ng/ml 1.979 0.157 7.23(5.31–9.85) <0.001
UICCa Stage III&IV and serum CEAb ≥5 ng/ml and age ≥65 years 2.222 0.203 9.22(6.19–13.74) <0.001
