Objective

The aim of the current study was to investigate which is the most suitable classification for colorectal cancer, log odds of positive lymph nodes LODDS classification or the classifications based on the number of positive lymph nodes pN and positive lymph node ratioLNR in a Chinese single institutional population.

Design

Clinicopathologic and prognostic data of 1297 patients with colorectal cancer were retrospectively studied. The log-rank statistics, Cox-s proportional hazards model, the Nagelkerke R2 index and a Harrell-s C statistic were used.

Results

Univariate and three-step multivariate analyses identified that LNR was a significant prognostic factor and LNR classification was superior to both the pN and LODDS classifications. Moreover, the results of the Nagelkerke R2 index 0.130 and a Harrell-s C statistic 0.707 of LNR showed that LNR and LODDS classifications were similar and LNR was a little better than the other two classifications. Furthermore, for patients in each LNR classification, prognosis was homologous between those in different pN or LODDS classifications. However, for patients in pN1a, pN1b, LODDS2 and LODDS3 classifications, significant differences in survival were observed among patients in different LNR classifications.

Conclusions

For patients with colorectal cancer, the LNR classification is more suitable than pN and LODDS classifications for prognostic assessment in a Chinese single institutional population.
