  1. Galectin 3 (Gal3) cell counts (positive cells/mm2) and the ratio of Galectin 3 and CD68 positive cells in cervical lymph nodes of oscc patients depending on histomorphologic parameters of the primary tumor (T-, N-, L-, Pn-Status, Grading). Results for the interfollicular zone (IFZ) and the sinuses of tumor-free lymph nodes are given. Values represent the median, standard deviation (SD) and p-value (ANOVA)
  2. Significant p-values are indicated in bold letters
