    Prognostic Index for Cancer Outcomes

    Predicts cancer mortality from serum biomarkers.
    When to Use
    Why Use

    Patients with known cancer.

    • The Prognostic Index (PI) has been evaluated across numerous different cancer cohorts and suggests incrementally worsening prognosis with increasing score.
    • Depending upon patient selection, stage, cancer, and other factors the resulting survival numbers vary widely.

    Multiple studies suggest significantly worse outcome in patients with multiple types of cancer.

    CRP ≤10 mg/L
    CRP >10 mg/L
    WBC ≤ 11 x 10⁹/L
    WBC > 11 x 10⁹/L
