Figure 5. Identification of three clusters of HCC patients that exhibited distinct ASE features and clinical outcomes using consensus clustering. (A) Cumulative distribution function for k = 2 to 10. (B) Relative change in the area under the CDF curve for k = 2 to 10. (C) Tracking plot for k = 2 to 10. (D–F) Consensus clustering matrix for k = 2, 3, and 4. (G) Heatmap of the consensus matrix. aP< 0.01, bP< 0.001. (H) Kaplan-Meier OS curves for the 343 HCC patients stratified by cluster.
