Gobbi and coworkers attempted to predict expected median survival time (EMST) including deaths from all causes.22 Factors retained in the model were age, gender, clinical stage, histologic subtype, erythrocyte sedimentation rate, and serum albumin. A proposed equation was as follows: EMST = [326.9 - 64.6 erythrocyte sedimentation rate - 70.6 clinical stage - 60.2 histologic type - 40.4 age -29.9 serum albumin - 24.3 gender] X 0.693, that predicts a survival duration in months for a given individual.
