Table 3 Relationship between cytoplasmic FABP7 expression and tumor thickness in primary melanomas

From: The fatty acid binding protein 7 (FABP7) is involved in proliferation and invasion of melanoma cells

Tumor type Expression No of patients Average depth of growth (mm) P
SSM Negative* 41 1.59  
  Positive 48 2.17 0.021
NM Negative* 15 4.32  
  Positive 41 4.78 0.697
  1. * Considered negative if < 5% tumor cells showed positive immunoreactivety of FABP7
