Table 2

Cellular composition and total RNA yield of single-pass FNA samples used for TP (n = 38)

The percentage of cancer cells and lymphocytes and the yield of total RNA (μg) from one passage of each FNA specimen is presented in the Table. When the percentage values do not add up to 100%, additional miscellaneous stromal cells account for the difference.
