Background:Despite several years of research and attempts to develop prognostic models a considerable fraction of stage II colon cancer patients will experience relapse within few years from their operation. The aim of the present study was to investigate the prognostic importance of miRNA-21 (miR-21), quantified by in situ hybridisation, in a unique, large population-based cohort.Patients and methods:The study included 764 patients diagnosed with stage II colon cancer in Denmark in the year… CONTINUE READING
