Abstract

Colorectal cancer remains a significant cause of cancer death, and its treatment is the subject of active, ongoing investigation within all treatment modalities, including surgery, chemotherapy, and radiotherapy. In this review we discuss selected interesting and important research findings since the year 2000 and comment on their potential impact on the adjuvant and advanced disease management of patients with colon and rectal cancer.
