We speculate that APT value may be a useful biomarker for assessing rectal pathological characteristics, which could have a potential impact on the clinical therapeutic strategies for patients. We have established a baseline for the APT values in rectal cancer, which was shown significantly correlated with pathologic features (eg. tumor grade and Ki-67 index).
