Al's Comment:

 Finally good news for those of us with a weight problem.  The study is too small to prove anything but they found that obese individual had a 5 month increase in median survival compared to non obese patients. It would be interesting to check this on other databases and see if it is real.  If it is, then we have to account for BMI in clinical trials as the 5 month difference is more than the difference needed to get a drug approved.
