Table 1 Multiparametric logistic regression analysis to express the relationship of classification by the combined BPA/UPA proteomic test with demographic and clinical variables for the prediction of overall survival within the first year of clinical follow-up after proteomic analysis. The regression coefficient in the table expresses the amount of change in the logit function related to one unit change in the predictor
