From: ECM1 promotes migration and invasion of hepatocellular carcinoma by inducing epithelial-mesenchymal transition

Tumor size (>5 vs ≤5 cm) 2.009 1.144–3.529 0.015 2.529 1.464–4.369 0.001
Liver cirrhosis (without/mild vs moderate/severe) 6.879 2.964–15.968 <0.001 6.703 3.078–14.598 <0.001
Vascular invasion (present vs absent) 4.291 1.848–9.960 0.001 3.430 1.563–7.527 0.002
ECM1 (positive vs negative) 4.481 2.021–9.934 <0.001 3.289 1.601–6.758 0.001
  1. P value was generated by multivariate survival analysis performed for all parameters that were significant in the univariate analyses using the Cox regression model. P < 0.05 was considered as statistically significant
