  • NOTE: Mean values were from eight pairs of BP samples and from one to two samples/patients obtained from 10 MP and from 10 tumor specimens. Numbers in parentheses are the number of patients when samples were analyzed. Specimens from 2 of 12 patients included either tumor or peritoneum.

  • * Denotes significantly different from tumor: P = 0.004.

  • Denotes significantly different from tumor: P = 0.003.
