Figure 5

Correlation of tumor volume with Hsp70 protein and anti-Hsp70 antibody serum levels in patients with SCCHN. Tumor volumes were determined by manually contouring the gross tumor volume (GTV) of patients based on contrast enhanced computer tomography scans before radiation therapy. The assessed tumor volumes in ml were associated with the sHsp70 serum (A, n = 13) and anti-Hsp70 antibody (B, n = 10) levels as determined by ELISA. Linear regression was determined by SigmaPlot statistical software.
