Kaplan-Meier survival analysis and statistical analysis according to the individual and co-expression pattern of NGF and HO1 in gastric carcinomas. a Gastric carcinomas were grouped into four sub-groups according to co-expression pattern of NGF and HO1 and subjected to Kaplan-Meier survival analysis for the overall survival and relapse-free survival. NGF/HO1, NGF-negative and HO1-negative. NGF+/HO1, NGF-positive and HO1-negative. NGF/HO1+, NGF-negative and HO1-positive. NGF+/HO1+, NGF-positive and HO1-positive. b Receiver operating characteristic curve analysis for the event of overall survival (death of patients) according to the NGF-positivity, HO1-positivity, and co-expression pattern of NGF and HO1 sub-grouping gastric carcinomas into four or three. The area under the curve is largest when the gastric carcinomas are divided to three sub-groups according to co-expression pattern of NGF and HO1 (NGF/HO1, NGF+/HO1 or NGF/HO1+, and NGF+/HO1+)
