|Official Title:||Effect of Temperament, Anxiety and Depression on Immuninity in Colorectal Cancer Patients.|
- Temperament in non-metastatic colorectal cancer patients [ Time Frame: 24 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]Evaluation if Temperament can be considered as dependent or indipendent prognostic factor for survival in non-metastatic colorectal cancer patients
Biospecimen Retention: Samples Without DNA
Blood samples for cell-mediated immunity evaluaion

120 prospective patients, with non-metastatic colorectal cancer, will be evaluated with questionnaires and auto-questionnaires in order to assess temperament, anxiety and depression. The immunity status will be assessed by a blood sample with the aim to evaluate cell-mediated immunity.
Survivall will be related to level of anxiety/temperament/depression and cell-mediated immunity.
Univariate and multivariate model analisys will be performed in order to evaluate if anxiety/temperament/depression and cell-mediated immunity can be considered as prognostic factors.
