BMI, BMI Change, and Overall Survival in Patients With Lung Cancer
This study of over 25,000 pts from the International Lung Cancer Consortium identified underweight and severly obese patients as having poorer survival than others, whereas a survival advantage was evident among patients who were overweight or mildly obese. Decreased BMI (wt loss) was associated with poorer outcomes across all BMI categories.
