Abstract: Colorectal cancer (CRC) is the third most common cancer worldwide, and its incidence is expected to increase to over 2.2 million new cases in 2030. Stage II CRC is classified as localized disease, while stage III CRC has spread to regional lymph nodes. The 5-year survival rate is over 80% for patients with stage II CRC, but less than 60% for patients with stage III CRC. Proteins, especially plasma proteins that are detectable in easily obtained blood samples, that differ between stage II and III CRC could be useful for predicting and monitoring disease progression. CRC displays differences depending on primary tumor location (right colon, left colon, or rectum), and how plasma protein expression changes during CRC progression from stage II to III depending on primary tumor location is not well-characterized.
