Results of subgroup analysis and sensitivity analysis. Forest plot of the subgroup analysis according to publication year (before 2015 and after 2015), origin of research (Asian and non-Asian), sample size (> 100 and < 100), and PD-L1 positive or high expression rate (< 30% and ≥ 30%) for the prognostic role of PD-L1 in a overall survival (OS) and b recurrence-free survival (RFS) in HCC. Sensitivity analysis revealed that no study exerted a significant influence on the overall pooling result of OS (c) and RFS (d). Sensitivity analysis revealed that no study exerted a significant influence on the overall pooling correlation of PD-L1 and AFP (e), hepatitis history (f), and CD8+ TILs (g). AFP alpha-fetoprotein, CI confidence interval, HR hazard ratio, OR odds ratio, PD-L1 programmed death ligand 1, HCC hepatocellular carcinoma, TIL tumour-infiltrating lymphocyte
