Table 3 Numerical distribution and statistical significance of ligand/VEGFR-2 correlations in tumor cells of CC tissue

From: The relevance of cell type- and tumor zone-specific VEGFR-2 activation in locally advanced colon cancer

VEGFR-2 VEGF-C p-value VEGF-D p-value
+ - (r) + - (r)
Tumor center
+ 30 22 NS 33 12 0.0001
- 11 16   12 27 (0.425)
Tumor budding
+ 27 9 NS 29 10 0.0002
- 20 10   10 21 (0.421)
  1. Positive tumoral expression of VEGFR-2 is positively correlated with positive tumoral VEGF-D expression in tumor center and tumor budding regions. r = Spearman rank correlation coefficient. p < 0.05 was taken as statistically significant. NS, not significant
