BACKGROUND: This study investigated the prognostic factors of bone metastases from lung cancer.
MATERIAL AND METHODS: From March 2014 to March 2015, 168 patients with bone metastases from lung cancer treated at our hospital were included and the clinical data were reviewed. The Kaplan-Meier survival curves were calculated and analyzed using the log-rank univariate test. Multivariate regression analysis was conducted using Cox’s regression model.
RESULTS: The overall median survival of the 168 patients was 13 months. The 1-year survival was 54.3% and the 2-year survival was 12.9%. Univariate regression analysis indicated that the pathologic types, number of bone metastases, clinical stage, ECOG scores, and serum ALP levels were significantly correlated with survival (P<0.05). Multivariate regression analysis indicated that the number of bone metastases, clinical stage, and serum ALP levels were significantly correlated with prognosis (P<0.05). The risk associated with multiple bone metastases was 1.72 times of that of single bone metastasis (P=0.029); the risk associated with advanced clinical stage was 1.49 times of that of early clinical stage (P=0.001); and the risk associated with a high serum ALP level was 1.75 times of that of the low serum ALP level (P=0.006).
CONCLUSIONS: Pathologic types, number of bone metastases, clinical stage, ECOG scores, and serum ALP levels were the prognostic factors for bone metastases from lung cancer.
