Table 3 Multivariate regression analysis of sMICA and NKG2D-expressing T cells acting in concert in the progression of the lesion

From: Augmented serum level of major histocompatibility complex class I-related chain A (MICA) protein and reduced NKG2D expression on NK and T cells in patients with cervical cancer and precursor lesions

  1. B: regression coefficient in the equation which predicts the grade of the lesion considering to both sMICA and NKG2D expression as independent variables; SEM for B: standard error for the regression coefficients; Beta: standardized regression coefficient which determines the actual weight of the regression coefficient if all variables are expressed in standard units; t: t-test value for the regression coefficient; sig: p value (R 2 = 0.467; p < 0.001).
