Table 3 Correlation between STAT3 protein expression and post surgery recurrence/metastasis

From: STAT3 expression correlates with prognosis of thymic epithelial tumors

  Recurrence or metastasis No recurrence or metastasis Total χ 2 P value
STAT3 protein(+) 12 24 36   
STAT3 protein(−) 2 42 44   
Total 14 66 80 11.366 <0.01
  1. The ratio of recurrence and metastasis between Stat3 protein positive and negative is significantly different (χ 2 = 11.366, P < 0.01).
