  1. ×2 = 19.643, P < 0.001, and linear-by-linear association = 16.246, P < 0.001 for EYA4 mRNA expression in the four groups; χ2 = 69.149, P < 0.001 and linear-by-linear association = 41.994, P < 0.001 for hTERT mRNA expression in the four groups. BCH, Basal cell hyperplasia; ESCD, esophageal squamous cells dyspalsia; ESCC, esophageal squamous cells cancer.
