Table 4 Association of reduced SOD2 expression in primary TSCC and lymph node metastasis (pN)

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

  n SOD2  
   Average Variance
Patient Cohort #1    
pN + 27 1.18 0.19
pN - 26 1.29 0.21
    (p = 0.043)
Patient Cohort #2    
pN + 40 1.06 0.57
pN - 60 1.62 0.58
    (p = 0.0004)
  1. One-way ANOVA was used to assess the association of SOD2 with pN.
  2. The expression levels of SOD2 for Patient Cohort #1 were based on the relative mRNA level. The expression levels of SOD2 for Patient Cohort #2 were generated from Immunohistochemistry. The p-values were computed using one-way ANOVA.
