Table 5 The sensitivity and specificity for the positive expression of hTERT and EYA4 mRNA combing the traditional risk factors by discrimination analysis

From: Relationship between the expression of hTERT and EYA4 mRNA in peripheral blood mononuclear cells with the progressive stages of carcinogenesis of the esophagus

  1. Note: The discrimination model 1 and model 3 included variables of the hTERT and EYA4 and the five traditional risk factors (sex, age, smoking, alcohol drinking and family history of esophageal cancer). The discrimination model 2 and model 4 only included the five traditional risk factors. ESCD, esophageal squamous cells dyspalsia; ESCC, esophageal squamous cells cancer.
