A three-long non-coding RNA-expression-based risk score system can better predict both overall and recurrence-free survival in patients with small hepatocellular carcinoma

Figure 5. Establishment of the RFS nomogram for sHCC patients using the TCGA dataset. (A) Nomogram for predicting RFS of sHCC. There are three components in this nomogram: the three-lncRNA score, ECOG and liver cirrhosis. Each of them generates points according to the line drawn upward. And the total points of the three components of an individual patient lie on “Total Points” axis which corresponds to the probability of 1-year and 3-year RFS rate plotted on the two axes below. (B) Calibration plots of the nomogram for predicting RFS rate at 1 year (Left) and 3 years (Right). The predicted and the actual probabilities of RFS were plotted on the x- and y-axis, respectively. (C) Kaplan-Meier curves of three risk subgroups stratified by the total points the nomogram gives.
