Abstract

Stage I colorectal carcinomas display a highly variable behavior which is not accurately predicted by the available prognostic markers. CD133 is considered a useful marker to identify the so-called cancer stem cells in colorectal cancers (CRCs) and its expression has been shown to have prognostic significance in CRC patients. This study aimed to verify whether immunohistochemical evaluation of CD133 might correlate with the progression risk of stage I CRC patients.
