Table 1 Association of S100A9-positive inflammatory cell count in cancer tissues with clinicopathological parameters in gastric cancer patients

From: Presence of S100A9-positive inflammatory cells in cancer tissues correlates with an early stage cancer and a better prognosis in patients with gastric cancer
