Table 2 The protein expression of SOD2 in TSCC

From: Deregulation of manganese superoxide dismutase (SOD2) expression and lymph node metastasis in tongue squamous cell carcinoma

  Strong Moderate Weak No
Normal: n (%) 0 (0.00) 5 (33.33) 9 (60.00) 1 (6.67)
Premalignant: n (%) 3 (9.68) 14 (45.16) 11 (35.48) 3 (9.68)
TSCC: n (%) 25 (25.00) 29 (29.00) 42 (42.00) 4 (4.00)
LN metastasis: n (%) 10 (31.25) 11 (34.38) 10 (31.25) 1 (3.12)
  1. The SOD2 levels were measured by immunohistochemistry (IHC) on cohort #2. The cases were categorized based on relative SOD2 level (IHC staining) as strong, moderate, weak, and no staining.
