In this study, we aimed to investigate whether there is any correlation between the molecular profile and clinical outcome of pTNM stage I CRCs and whether mutations in KRAS, BRAF, NRAS, and PIK3CA genes are associated with histopathological features in this group of tumors.
Univariate analysis (Table 3) showed that, along with pathological types, tumor differentiation, pTNM stages, and clinical stages, G199T polymorphism was an influence factor of both recurrence (HR = 1592, 95% CI 1.047-2.420, p = 0.03) and cancer death (HR = 1.640, 95% CI 1.074-2.505, p = 0.022) risks, while C432G genotype was not.
