Explanation of Data Bases and Bar Graphs
SOMAscan affinity proteomics data:
SOMAscan signals reflecting relative levels of protein mediators in ascites, plasma from ovarian cancer patients (OC-plasma) and patients with non-malignant gynecologic diseases (N-plasma) (Finkernagel et al., 2019).
Box pots show medians (horizontal line), upper and lower quartiles (box), range (whiskers) and outliers/fliers (diamonds).
Association of transcriptome and survival data:
RFS associated with TCGA microarray data.
SOMAscan ascites protein levels / RFS data for HGSC (Finkernagel et al., 2019).
TCGA, KMP: data split at best fitting quantile; PRECOG: data split at median.
A z-zcore of >1.96 or <-1.96 corresponds to a logrank p-value of <0.05.
Positive z-scores indicate a hazard ratio >1 (shorter survival); negative z-scores indicate a hazard ratio <1 (longer survival).
