Analysis of Tumor Microenvironmental Features to Refine Prognosis by T, N Risk Group in Patients with Stage III Colon Cancer (NCCTG N0147) (Alliance).
Tumor-infiltrating lymphocytes (TILs), tumor budding, and micropapillary architecture may influence tumor growth and metastatic potential, thereby enhancing prognostic stratification. We analyzed these features and their relative contribution to overall outcome and in low (T1-3 N1) and high (T4 and/or N2) risk groups that are used to inform the duration of adjuvant chemotherapy in patients with resected stage III colon cancers.
