Recent studies have revealed the Glasgow prognostic score (GPS) to aid in the prediction of postoperative outcome in colorectal cancer patients. However, whether GPS predicts poor prognosis in curative colorectal cancer patients has yet to be ascertained. Furthermore, there is no information on the association between GPS and adjuvant chemotherapy in stage II or III colorectal cancer patients. A total of 219 patients with stage II and III colorectal cancer were included in this trial. The… CONTINUE READING
