Logistic regression: Adjusted odds ratios (OR), 95% confidence intervals (95% CI) and p-value of cadherin expression and tumor stage as predictors for lymph node status. Because of quasi-complete separation in the data, differentiation grade was not included as a factor in the logistic regression model.
