The association of studied features with prognosis (univariate survival analysis in the entire cohort)

Feature

P value (Log Rank Test)


Phospho-p38 expression (<15 vs ≥15)*

0.443

Cytoplasmic caspase-8 expression (weak vs moderate/strong)

0.037

Nuclear caspase-8 expression (<10 vs ≥10)

0.257

Bcl-2 expression (<45 vs ≥45)*

0.218

Grade (grade 1/2 vs grade 3/4)

0.019

pT-stage (stage pT1a/pT1b/pT2 vs pT3a/pT3b)

0.712

Age (<54 vs ≥54)*

0.273

Gender (male vs female)

0.660


The association of studied features with prognosis was studied with the Log Rank Test. As shown in the table, grade and cytoplasmic caspase-8 expression are both prognosticators, and of these, Fuhrman's grade is more significant. Numbers in bold: statistically significant.

(*): median values.
