  • NOTE: Pairwise contrast (logistic regression) between tissue categories are comparing (a) Smad3 average scores of <1.5 versus average scores of ≥1.5 and (b) N-cadherin average scores of 0 versus average scores of ≥1.5.

  • * Cox proportional hazards regression analysis using Smad3 or N-cadherin as a continuous variable.
