Lower immune abundance in metastatic breast tumors (METs) compared to primary breast tumors (PBTs) (a) Total immune score in PBT/MET pairs in Pan-MET dataset, together with the paired changes (MET-PBT). b Paired changes of total immune score removing BRMs in (a). c Total immune score grouped by MET sites. d Stromal tumor infiltrating lymphocytes (sTILs) percentages of 49 pairs of PBT/BRMs in BRM-sTIL dataset. e Spearman’s correlation between sTILs percentages and total immune score for 15 pairs of PBT/BRMs overlapped by Pan-MET and BRM-sTIL. ****p < 0.0001, ***p < 0.001, **p < 0.01, *p < 0.05 from two-sided Wilcoxon signed rank test in (a-d) and correlation test in (e)
