Table 4 Scoring results of IL-8 immunostaining.

From: Impaired leukocyte influx in cervix of postterm women not responding to prostaglandin priming

IL-8 Leukocytes
(median and range)
Glandular epithelium
(median and range)
NP (n = 6) resp (n = 4) 0 (0–1) 0 (0–1)
TP (n = 8) resp (n = 5) 0 (0–1) 1 (0–1)
PP (n = 10) resp (n = 10) 2 (1–2) § 2 (1–3) *
C (n = 18) resp (n = 9) 2 (1–3) 2 (1–3)
R (n = 13) resp (n = 2) 2 (1–3)  
NR (n = 10) resp (n = 1) 0 (0–3) #  
  1. Glandular epithelium (GE) was not present in all samples why the n is less there. In the post term study it was not possible to do statistical calculations of IL-8 immunostaining in GE.
  2. § = significantly different to NP and TP groups.
  3. * = significantly different to the NP group.
  4. # = significantly different from the C and R groups.
