Univariate analysis using Cox's hazards model revealed that operative removal (P=0 000?8) and lymphatic metastasis around hepatic hilum (P=0 000?96) were statistically significant independent prognostic factors.

But multivariate logistic regression analysis showed that initial level of consciousness(OR=2.606, P<0.01)and hemorrhage size (OR=1.038, P<0.01)were significant independent risk factors, the time of stereotaxic aspiration(OR= 0.645 , P<0.05) was significant independent protective factor of 30 day mortality.

In N0 disease,the present of retropharyngeal lymphadenopathy was significant independent predictor for OS,locoregional relapse-free survival(LRRFS)and DMFS(P=0.007,0.023 and 0.008,respectively).

Linear regression analysis revealed that disturbed global functional health, larger volume of infarcts and severity of aphasia were significant independent explanatory factors for poorer QL (adjustedR2 = 22%).

Multiple logistic regression revealed that female sex, increased length of stay, elective admission, surgical operation, and transurethral and repeated intermittent catheterization were all significant independent risk factors for HAUTI.

A Cox regression analysis revealed that p120ctn expression was a significant independent factor in the prediction of survival for patients with non-small-cell lung cancer (P=0.008).

Cox's multivariate model revealed that Ki-67 positivity at threshold of 50% was a significant independent prognostic factor.

The singular importance of occupational status in Japan is noted and contrasted with the United States, where occupational status, social class, and education all have significant independent effects on job income.

A randomized complete block design of three replications was adopted in a-three-year experiment. The seeds of wheat var. "77-Zhong-2882" and "79p-17" were treated with CO_2 Laser and Nd-glass laser irradiation. Eleven characters were studied and statistically analysed.The experiment results showed heading time of the treated plant was 2～4 days earlier than the control. The genefic coefficient varibilits (GCV) of characters were grater for grain number on the main spike, grain number per spikelet, effective spike...

A randomized complete block design of three replications was adopted in a-three-year experiment. The seeds of wheat var. "77-Zhong-2882" and "79p-17" were treated with CO_2 Laser and Nd-glass laser irradiation. Eleven characters were studied and statistically analysed.The experiment results showed heading time of the treated plant was 2～4 days earlier than the control. The genefic coefficient varibilits (GCV) of characters were grater for grain number on the main spike, grain number per spikelet, effective spike number/plant and heading time showing great potential for selection for the characters.The estimated values of heritability(h~2%) of fentile spikelet number and spike length were high for selection in early geeretions. The h~2 (%) of characters for grain weight per plant etc. were lower so that selection for these characters made in high generations was recommended.The relative genetic advance(RGS) were greater for grain number on main spike, 1000-grain weight, feritile spikelet number and plant height, indieating that the selection might be effective.The optimal multivariate linear regression equation of the main agr onomic characters on yield/plant significant independent variables were plant height, effective spike No./plant, the multivariate correlation coefficient were highly significant.Path analysis showed the direct path coefficients of grain wt of ma in spike was greater. indirect path coefficient was the greatest for grain NO. of main spike through grain wt. of main spike. This showed that laser breeding of wheat should lay stress on selection for a combination of charaoiers.

A randomized complete block design of three replications was adopted in a three-years experiments.The seeds of two wheat varieties were treated with CO2 laser,Nd-glass laser irradiation.Eleven characters ?were studied and statistically analyzed The results showed that the significant independent variables or characters in the optimal multivariate linear regression,equation of the main agronomic characters on yield per plant were grain weight per spike,No.of effective spike per plant,No.of grain on main...

Eighty one elderly patients with paroxysmal atrial fibrillation were studied with respect to clinical features,effect of antiarrhythmic drugs and prognosis.35(43.2%)patients were associated with coronary artery disease and / or hypertention,while 23(28.4%) patients had no other cardiovascular diseases.The latter condition was significantly less in patients over 60 years old when they had the first paroxysmal attack.Atrial fibrillation became permanent in 18(22.2%) patients.

Eighty one elderly patients with paroxysmal atrial fibrillation were studied with respect to clinical features,effect of antiarrhythmic drugs and prognosis.35(43.2%)patients were associated with coronary artery disease and / or hypertention,while 23(28.4%) patients had no other cardiovascular diseases.The latter condition was significantly less in patients over 60 years old when they had the first paroxysmal attack.Atrial fibrillation became permanent in 18(22.2%) patients. Left atrial enlargement and abnormal cardiac function were significant independent factors affecting the type of atrial fibrillation, During an observation period of 12～84 months, the incidence of cerebral embolism and cardiac death were 6.1% and 4.9% respectively in all cases.We did not find that the prognosis of pa-tients was affected by the types of atrial fibrillation.
