Table 2 Correlation between pCR and plakoglobin and E-cadherin expression in 39 TNBC and 82 non-TNBC.

From: Circulating tumor cell clusters-associated gene plakoglobin is a significant prognostic predictor in patients with breast cancer

  Parameters plakoglobin p value E-cadherin p value
High (n = 4) Low (n = 35) High (n = 15) Low (n = 24)
TNBC (n = 39) Pathological response
 pCR 3 (75.0%) 16 (45.7%) 0.342 10 (66.7%) 9 (37.5%) 0.105
 non-pCR 1 (25.0%) 19 (54.3%) 5 (33.3%) 15 (62.5%)
non-TNBC (n = 82)   High (n = 17) Low (n = 65)   High (n = 56) Low (n = 26)  
Pathological response
 pCR 4 (23.5%) 25 (38.5%) 0.393 22 (39.3%) 7 (26.9%) 0.328
