Abstract
Surgery followed by adjuvant treatment has been an evidence-based treatment recommendation for stage III colon cancer and stage II/III rectal cancer since 1990. Clinical trial results are, however, uninformative regarding the definitive outer limit by which adjuvant treatment should be received for optimal survival benefit. The purpose of my thesis research was to assess the effect that the timing of adjuvant therapy has on patient survival in actual clinical practice
