Table 1 Immunohistochemical detection of activated caspase-3 positive cells in the upper part of crypts

From: Mitotic and apoptotic activity in colorectal neoplasia

  Apoptotic index of activated caspase-3 positive cells in the upper part of crypts (%)
Controls Median 0.00, IQR 0 (13)
Non-advanced-adenoma Median 1.37, IQR 1.42–1.18 (8) 1
Advanced adenoma Median 1.84, IQR 2.03–1.72 (10) 1, 2
Colorectal carcinoma Median 0.86, IQR 1.05–0.77 (9) 1, 2, 3
  1. Results are conveyed as median and interquartile range (IQR) of apoptotic indices. Number of compartments evaluated in particular group are in brackets
  2. 1: statistically significant difference when compared to control: p< 0.05
  3. 2: statistically significant difference when compared to non-advanced adenoma (non-a-A): p< 0.05
  4. 3: statistically significant difference when compared to advanced adenoma (a-A): p< 0.05
