Despite an extensive literature suggesting that high microsatellite instability (
A hospital database of patients following colorectal cancer resection was interrogated for clinical, operative, pathology, adjuvant therapy and follow‐up information.
Among 1009 patients who had a resection between August 2002 and December 2008, and were followed to at least December 2013, there were 114 (11·3 per cent) with
Microsatellite instability status was not an independent prognostic variable in these patients.Read more
