Table 1 Characteristics of head and neck squamous cell carcinoma and esophageal cancer data

From: The cox-filter method identifies respective subtype-specific lncRNA prognostic signatures for two human cancers

 Patients (#)Deaths (#)Median survival time (days)p-value (log-rank test)
Esophageal cancer
 Squamous Cell Carcinoma [ESCC]8129763 
 Adenocarcinoma [EAC]83388010.721
Head and Neck Squamous Cell Carcinoma [HNSCC]
 Laryngeal [LSCC]89251838 
 Hypopharyngeal [HSCC]620.839
  1. The log-rank tests indicated histological subtype but had no prognostic value for esophageal cancer or HNSCC. For esophageal cancer, this is consistent with previous results. For HNSCC the discrepancy may be attributable to the small sample size of HSCC subtype
