Ignazio Tarantino, Rene Warschkow, Bruno Schmied, Ulrich Gueller, Markus Mieth, Thomas Cerny, Markus W Büchler & Alexis Ulrich
This is the first population-based investigation of a large cohort of exclusively stage I rectal cancer patients providing compelling evidence that elevated preoperative CEA level is a strong predictor of worse overall and cancer-specific survival.
