  1. A non-parametric Kruskal-Wallis rank-sum test was used for testing differences in receptor expression of estrogen receptor (ER) α, nuclear ERβ, cytoplasmic ERβ and progesterone receptor (PR) among the groups. p-values < 0.05 were considered statistically significant (indicated by using bold font)
