Seven low-mass ions in pretreatment serum as potential predictive markers of the chemoradiotherapy response of rectal cancer.

Abstract

Preoperative chemoradiotherapy (CRT) is generally performed for locally advanced rectal cancer (LARC, cStage 2 or 3) to improve local disease control and patient survival. The pathological tumor response to CRT is a surrogate marker that is associated with oncological outcome. Thus, markers that predict the response to CRT would be valuable for… (More)
