Endoscopic treatment for T1 Colorectal Cancers (CRC) generates a risk of metastasis in the draining lymph nodes that have been left in place, and of recurrence after Local Resection (LR). Depending on the risk of Lymph Node Metastasis (LNM) determined by the pathologic assessment, approximately 70% of patients with T1 CRC are classified as high risk, whereas postsurgical pathologic results demonstrate that around 20% of these patients actually have LNM. This highlights the limited diagnostic ability of post-endoscopic pathological examination to predict LNM. There is a need for additional biomarkers to allow robust detection of high-risk patients with T1 tumors, minimizing secondary radical surgery, reducing patient complications, physical burdens, and associated health care costs. The objective of this review is to provide an update on the latest advances in predictive biomarkers for LNM of T1 colorectal tumors. A particular focus will be made on the immune component assessment contribution and Immunoscore test.
