  1. Data are presented as counts (percentage). The histological score (HSCORE) ranged from 0 to 3 and was calculated to assess immunohistochemical staining by the following formula: HSCORE = ΣPi(i) where “pi” represents the percentage of positive cell counts in total cell counts, and “i” represents the intensity). An HSCORE of 0.05 was considered as a threshold to distinguish high expression and low expression
