Expression of EpCAM mRNA+ CTC and Treg/CD4+ in HCC recurrence vs no recurrence group. a, Based on 2−ΔΔC q algorithm transformation, the relative EpCAM mRNA expression of CTC in HCC patients with or without tumor recurrence after resection. EpCAM mRNA+ CTC showed significantly higher in recurrence patients (p = 0.001); b, The high ratio of Treg/CD4+ was observed d in recurrence group (p = 0.0197)
