Aim: To identify predictors of poor prognosis of patients with colon cancer (CC) who underwent surgery with curative intent, we investigated the association between the albumin to globulin ratio (AGR) with clinicopathological findings such as overall (OS) and disease-free (DFS) survival. Patients and Methods: We conducted a retrospective study of clinicopathological findings, including preoperative laboratory data, for 248 patients with stage I-III CC. Results: Patients with low AGR had shorter DFS and OS compared to those with high AGR. Multivariate analyses identified low AGR as an independent variable independently associated with recurrence and poor prognosis of patients with CC who underwent surgery with curative intent regardless of lymphnode metastasis. Conclusion: The preoperative AGR was an independent predictor of recurrence and poor prognosis of patients with CC who underwent surgery with curative intent. The AGR indicates that these patients may benefit from intensive adjuvant therapy.
