  1. The number of cases is illustrated, percentages are in brackets. The number of patients with missing data is indicated. Positive expression was taken as an immunohistochemistry score of > 90 and High positive expression was taken as an immunohistochemistry score > 150. P values calculated by Chi2 test are indicated
