Relationship between phospho-Akt staining intensity vs. Gleason score

Weak staining had scores of 0 and 1+. Strong staining intensity had scores of 2+ and 3+. The staining intensity for phospho-Akt is significantly greater in Gleason grade 8–10 compared with PIN, and all other grades of cancer (P ≤ 0.001).
