    In tumors with absent (0) or weak (1+) expression of factor X no differences in tumor characteristics or survival data were observed. On account of this we have formed two groups of positive (2+) or negative (0 or 1+) staining for factor X, respectively.


    Gibt es Bedeutungsunterschied zwischen "on THIS account" oder "on THAT account" in diesem Zusammenhang?

    No material difference. There can be a slight connotation of liking things referred to as "this" and of disliking things referred to as "that", but I don't know if that is true of everyone.

    I don't know exactly why, but in the context you offer I'd just as soon see "for that/this reason..."

    @tinear:

    Thanks!

    So you mean I should replace "on this account" with:
    .....were observed. For this reason we have formed two groups....

    Yes, that´s also an alternative which came into my mind.....it sounds somewhat less "pompous" / "highbrow" / "over the top" ;-) But I was just interested because I saw that there exist these two composed expressions for account in LEO and got suddenly aware that there might be a faint difference between this and that I never had cared for until now.

    Cheers!
