  1. The Galectin 3 (Gal3) cell count (positive cells/mm2) in diagnostic biopsies (biopsy), tumor resection specimens (tumor) and lymph node metastases of oscc patients. Results for the epithelial tumor compartment (epithelial), the tumor stroma (stroma) and the whole analyzed area (epithelial + stroma) are given. Values represent the median, standard deviation (SD) and p-value (ANOVA)
  2. Significant p-values are indicated in bold letters
