  1. Comparisons of ST6Gal I activity between clinicopathological features by Dun test. The data represent the value of Dun test, which are indicative of the degree of correlation between the variables. Tumour/Healthy: quotient of the enzyme activity from the two tissues of the same patient. Net increase: difference of the enzyme activity from tumour and healthy tissues from the same patient. n.s.: not significant.
