Bottom Line: At a median follow up of 57 months, age, gender and Dukes' stage showed an impact on disease-free survival, whereas no biological marker emerged as an indicator of better or worse disease-free survival.Only histological grade and Dukes' stage were found to influence overall survival.Therefore, other markers must be identified to complement clinico-pathological variables in the management of this disease.
