• kidney
  • Where the cancer has not metastasised (spread to other organs) or burrowed deeper into the tissues of the kidney, the five-year survival rate is 65-90%, but this is lowered considerably when the cancer has spread. (wikipedia.org)
  • significantly
  • OS was significantly reduced after radical nephrectomy compared with NSS (P = .012), a survival difference that remained significant [hazard ratio (HR) 0.042, 95% confidence interval (CI) 0.221-0.972, P = .in multivariate analysis, together with age at diagnosis (HR 1.065, 95% CI 1.026-1.106, P = .001) and American Society of Anesthesiology score (HR 2.361, 95% CI 1.261-4.419, P = .007).

  • Also renal function assessed by estimated glomerular filtration rate significantly correlated to survival in univariate analysis, but did not remain independent after multivariate analysis. (lu.se)
  • The sunitinib group had a significantly longer median disease free survival compared to the placebo group. (mhmedical.com)
  • Cases
  • Very little improvement in survival rate could be ascribed to actinomycin D. The reasons for this and for the variations found in earlier reports on selected cases are possibly the addition of other components of treatment and differences in drug regimens. (bmj.com)
