Table 4 pAkt level in relation to distant metastases and local recurrence

From: Clinical significance of Akt and HER2/neu overexpression in African-American and Latina women with breast cancer

  Distant metastases P value Local recurrence P value
  Yes (%) No (%)   Yes (%) No (%)  
HER2+/High pAkt 61.9 38.1 0.007 12.5 87.5 0.259
HER2+/Low pAkt 21.4 78.6   18.2 81.8  
HER2-/High pAkt 56.3 43.7   7.1 92.9  
HER2-/Low pAkt 31.3 68.7   0 100  
  1. HER2+, HER2/neu 3+ determined by immunohistochemistry (IHC); HER2-, HER2/neu 2+ and 1+ and negative determined by IHC; High pAkt, pAkt level above median level (>36); Low pAkt, pAkt level of less than or equal to 36.
