From: The role of protein inhibitor of activated STAT3 and miRNA-18a expressions in breast cancer

  Tumor group Normal group Z p value

 Mean ± SD 3.5 ± 7.4 2.5 ± 3
  1. Z Wilcoxon signed-rank test which is used to compare between two related samples, Min minimum, Max maximum, SD standard deviation
  2. *Statistically significant at p ≤ 0.05
  3. p value for comparing between the studied groups
