The modal DNA values of 1465 tumours, together with other factors of possible prognostic importance, were related to the survival of the patients, using regression models (Kay, 1977). For most tumour sites except the testis, the distributions of modal DNA values were bimodal, with peaks at the diploid level and in the triploid-tetraploid range. For all tumour sites except the cervix uteri, patients in the low (near-diploid) range showed better survival, the reverse was true for squamous-cell… CONTINUE READING
