TIMP-2 concentrations in serum were inversely correlated with miR-130b expression levels in tumor tissues from patients with NSCLC. Serum concentrations of TIMP-2 were compared according to tumor stage (A), with or without vascular (B), lymphatic (C), and pleura cancer cell invasion (D). (E) Correlations between TIMP-2 concentrations in serum and relative miR-130b expression in tumor tissues of patients with NSCLC were evaluated. (F) TIMP-2 concentration in serum was compared before or after operation. Data are means ± standard deviations. *p < 0.05 and **p < 0.01 for t-tests.
