Oligoscore: a clinical score to predict overall survival in patients with oligometastatic disease treated with stereotactic body radiotherapy
to find clinical features that can predict prognosis in patients with oligometastatic disease treated with stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT)
Material and methods
Patients with less than 5 metastases in less than 3 different body sites were included in the analysis. Various clinical and treatment parameters were analyzed to create a Cox proportional hazard model for Overall Survival (OS). Subsequently, significant variables were used to create a score
997 patients were analyzed. Median OS was 2.61 years, 1 and 3 years OS was respectively 85% and 43%. Location of the primary tumor, performance status, site of irradiated metastases, presence of extratarget non irradiated lesions and RT dose were significant prognostic factors for OS. These parameters were used to create a score and to distinguish three different classes, with median OS of 5.67 years in low risk, 2.47 years in intermediate risk and 1.82 years in high risk group.
