NOTE: HSP90 in IHCC showed a significant association with macroscopic type (P < 0.001), histologic classification (P = 0.002), intrahepatic metastasis (P = 0.008), pathologic tumor status (P = 0.013), lymph node metastasis (P = 0.032), and pathologic stage (P = 0.007).

  • aSignificantly different (P < 0.05).
