Table 1 Correlation among HGF expression, cell proliferation, IMD value and clinicopathological parameters of patients with gliomas

From: Tumor-derived hepatocyte growth factor is associated with poor prognosis of patients with glioma and influences the chemosensitivity of glioma cell line to cisplatin in vitro
