Prognostic scale for survival prediction of terminal ill cancer patients

Index Parameters Performance
Palliative prognostic index (PPI) [8] Palliative performance status; Oral intake; Edema; Dyspnea at rest; Delirium ✓ Above cutoff point of 6.0, the 3-week survival prediction sensitivity 80%, specificity 85%
✓ Above cutoff point of 4.0, the 6-week survival prediction sensitivity 80%, specificity 77%
Palliative prognostic score (PaP) [9] Dyspnea; Anorexia; Karnofsky performance status; Clinical prediction of survival; Total white blood count; Lymphocyte percentage ✓ Evaluated by comparing mortality rates in the 3 prognostic risk categories
✓ Median survival was 76 days in group A (with 86.6% probability of 30-day survival), 32 days in group B (with 51.6% probability of 30-day survival), 14 days in group C (with 16.9% probability of 30-day survival)
Objective prognostic score (OPS) [30] Anorexia resting dyspnea; ECOG performance status leukocytosis; Elevated bilirubin; Elevated creatinine; Elevated LDH ✓ Above cutoff point of 3.0, the 3-week prediction sensitivity 74.7%, specificity 76.5%
✓ The overall accuracy 75.5%

ECOG, Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group; LDH, lactate dehydrogenase.
