Original Source: Prognostic significance of response to preoperative radiotherapy, lymph node metastasis, and CEA level in patients undergoing total mesorectal excision of rectal cancer.

PURPOSE: The aim of this study was to investigate the prognostic significance of the response of primary rectal lesions to preoperative radiotherapy, pathological nodal status, and carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA) levels before and after radiotherapy in rectal cancer patients treated with a total mesorectal excision. METHODS: We investigated the prognostic significance of the clinical and pathological factors in 97 patients treated with preoperative radiotherapy (50-50.4 Gy over 5-6 weeks) followed by curativ...
