OBJECTIVES:The number of recovered lymph nodes is associated with good prognosis among colon cancer patients undergoing surgical resection. However, little has been known on prognostic significance of lymph node count after adjusting for host immune response to tumor and tumoral molecular alterations, both of which are associated with the lymph node count and patient survival.METHODS:Among 716 colorectal cancers (stages 1–4) in two independent prospective cohorts, we examined patient survival… CONTINUE READING
