  1. Overall, 17 resected stage III CRC patients undergoing the CapeOX regimen were recruited. These patients were divided into experimental group (CID+) and control group (CID−) according to whether they had diarrhea or not. The patient’s clinical information was shown in thus table. The clinical stages conformed to the criterion of stage III CRC according to AJCC. Smoking and drinking history over the course of 1 year were collected. Blood samples of patients before chemotherapy were collected for serological examination
