Table 2 Relationship between known prognostic factors and CXCL1 protein expression in breast cancer stroma

From: Elevated CXCL1 expression in breast cancer stroma predicts poor prognosis and is inversely associated with expression of TGF-β signaling proteins

  1. Association between CXCL1 protein expression and commonly used prognostic markers was determined in DCIS and IDC stromal tissues using Spearman Correlation analysis. Significance was determined by p<0.05. r= correlation coefficient.
