Brief Summary:

This study sets up the final study end point and three detailed goals as the following.

The main objective of study: This trial is done to assess the safety and benefit of early adjuvant chemotherapy from 10 to 14 days after surgery compared with conventional commencement after 2weeks for treatment of patients with colon cancer.

Detailed goal of study:

The primary endpoint: This study is designed to assess whether early commencement of adjuvant chemotherapy improves the 3-year disease-free survival, overall survival and recurrence rate.

The secondary endpoint: This study aims to compare short-term cumulative complications between early and conventional commencement of adjuvant chemotherapy after laparoscopic resection of colon cancer. This study will also assess the quality of life and side effects of chemotherapy.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. 3-year disease free survival rate [ Time Frame: up to 3 years after operation ]
    A survival analysis will be performed using the Kaplan-Meier method, for which a comparison of the survival curve will also made using a Log-rank test.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. short-term cumulative surgery-related complications during chemotherapy [ Time Frame: up to 26 weeks after operation ]
    A comparison of the postoperative recovery variables, the postoperative complications and mortality

  2. side effects of chemotherapy [ Time Frame: during chemotherapy period ]
    check Anemia, Leukopenia, Neutropenia, Thrombocytopenia, Edema, Fever, Insomnia, Asthenia, Anorexia, Nausea, Vomiting, Constipation, Diarrhea, Hand foot syndrome, Dyspepsia, Creatinine, AST, ALT, Bilirubin, abdominal pain, GI bleeding, diarrhea
