  • aFisher exact test (nonmissing values) for categorical variables, Wilcoxon rank-sum test for continuous variables.

  • bGroup Gleason 2 (n = 4); Group Gleason 3 (n = 4).

  • cGroup Gleason 2 (n = 8); Group Gleason 3 (n = 2).

  • dInformation missing in 1 WTC case. 1 WTC case was N+; all cases were M−.
