  1. The mean optical density of (±SD) related with expression of examined antigens assessed in Microimage software (Olympus). Mean values were calculated for 20 tumors of each pathological malignancy. For statistical purposes, the ANOVA + Tukey post-hoc tests were applied (Graph Pad Prism 5.0). The values that differed significantly (p < 0.05) markered as *, whereas the values that differed highly significant (p < 0.01 and p < 0.001) markered as ** and ***, respectively.
