Table 5 Correlation among per area of collagen fibers, the expression level of luciferase and MMP-2 in lung of KM and FM3A SiLN removal groups

From: Evaluation of metastatic niches in distant organs after surgical removal of tumor-bearing lymph nodes

   KM group FM3A group
collagen fibers MMP-2 P = 0.016, r = −0.847 P = 0.013, r = − 0.748
collagen fibers Luciferase P = 0.012, r = − 0.865 P = 0.030, r = − 0.681
  1. P < 0.05 was considered significant; r: Spearman correlation coefficient
