CSC properties of sphere cells in fresh clinical HCC specimens and association between sphere formation and prognosis. a Representative photographs of spheres formed from 5 fresh clinical HCC specimens. Scale bar 50 μm. b Relative expression of CSC-related genes in 5 primary HCC spheres. The expression level of certain gene in sphere cells was normalized according to the expression of that in parental HCC cells. c Positive rates of sphere-formation in 25 patients stratified according to tumor size, number, satellite lesion, and tumor stage
