Table 2 Univariable analyses of associations between MVDs and tumor growth, Mann-Whitney U tests

From: Angiogenesis and radiological tumor growth in patients with glioblastoma

  Slow-growing tumors Fast-growing tumors p-values
vWF-MVD Median: 13.7 95% CI (12.9, 18.2) Median: 17.3 95% CI (15.5, 22.7) p = 0.211
Range: 2.7–44.7 Range: 0.7–62.0
N = 49 N = 52
CD105-MVD Median: 11.7 95% CI (11.0, 16.2) Median: 16.3 95% CI (14.2, 20.5) p = 0.049*
Range: 1.0–42.7 Range: 0.7–50.0

  1. vWF-MVD Microvessel density count of von Willebrand factor. CD105-MVD Microvessel density count of CD105. CI Confidence interval. N Number of cases. * Statistically significant associations, p < 0.05. a One case was excluded from the vWF-MVD assessment, and another from the CD105-MVD assessment. These two cases were in different growth groups, which caused the change in number of cases for each group
