Colon cancer combined with obesity indicates improved survival- research on relevant mechanism

Figure 1. Obesity is an independent prognostic factor for improved overall survival. (A) The association of BMI and Overall Survival (OS) performed by Kaplan-Meier analysis. Patients were divided into 3 groups according to WHO standard (normal weight: BMI<25, overweight: 25≤BMI<30 and obesity: BMI≥30 kg/m2). (B) All patients redistributed into 2 groups (combined normal weight and overweight patients as normal group: BMI<30 vs obesity group: BMI≥30 kg/m2) and performed by Kaplan-Meier analysis. (C) Disease-Free Survival of normal group and obesity group performed by Kaplan-Meier analysis. (D) Progression-Free Survival of normal group and obesity group performed by Kaplan-Meier analysis. (E) Risk factors of OS analyzed by univariate Cox regression model. (F) Risk factors of OS analyzed by multivariate Cox regression model. (*p<0.05, **p<0.01, ***p<0.001).
