Table 6 Comparison of methylation levels at five CpG sites of patients in the recurrence and non-recurrence groups

From: The correlations between DNA methylation and polymorphisms in the promoter region of the human telomerase reverse transcriptase (hTERT) gene with postoperative recurrence in patients with thyroid carcinoma (TC)

Group CpG 1 CpG 2 CpG 3 CpG 4 CpG 5 Methylation levels Mean value P
Non-recurrence group 16% 17% 18% 9% 10% Low 14.0% <0.001
Recurrence group 25% 31% 21% 39% 38% High 30.8%
