Description Epidemiological evidence indicates increased incidence of certain cancers T2DM, worse outcomes and also certain modifying effect of various glucose-lowering therapies. Given the population prevalence of both T2DM and colorectal cancer (CRC) their relationship is especially relevant. Study objective was to analyse tumour-, patient- and treatment-related characteristics explaining possible difference in selected outcomes between CRC subjects with and without pre-existing diabetes by means of in-depth epidemiological analysis of all consecutive patients diagnosed and treated for CRC over the past 10 yrs (stratified by the presence/absence of T2DM) in the largest cancer centre in Czech Rep. - Masaryk Memorial Cancer Institute (MMCI) in Brno.
