Table 2 TFPI and TF tumor mRNA expression across clinicopathological breast cancer subtypes

From: Tumor expression, plasma levels and genetic polymorphisms of the coagulation inhibitor TFPI are associated with clinicopathological parameters and survival in breast cancer, in contrast to the coagulation initiator TF
