Comparison of ER-α mRNA RT-qPCR results with histological diagnosis

 Groups ER-α mRNA RT-qPCR

Positives* Negatives
Cancer patients 15 (85.0) 5 (25.0)
CIN3 patients 8 (40.0) 12 (60.0)
CIN1 patients 11 (55.0) 9 (45.0)
Normal subjects 5 (25.0) 15 (75.0)
Total 39 41

Values are presented as N (%).

The positive rates of cervical cancer and normal groups were calculated based on cut-off of ER-α mRNA levels.

Abbreviations: ER-α, estrogen receptor alpha; CIN, cervical intraepithelial neoplasia.
