  1. aInferred from tumor stage. See Methods section for assignment rules
  2. bBased on E-cadherin expression in primary tumor cancer cells measured as a weighted average of tumor cores on a continuous average intensity scale of 0–3. Low E-cadherin expression (below the cut point) is evidence of EMT (EMT-positive)
  3. EMT Epithelial-mesenchymal transition
