Methods: A total of 200 consecutive patients who underwent resection for primary CRC were enrolled. The clinicopathological characteristics, serum TNF-α and IL-10 levels, and infectious complications were analyzed. The TNF-α and IL-10 levels were classified using cut-off values based on a ROC analysis. 
Results: Infectious complications developed in 27 (13.5%) patients. Patients with complications had higher serum IL-10 levels than those without complications during the first 5 postoperative days (PODs) (P35.3 ng/L on POD 3 or >20.3 ng/L on POD 5 was associated with the occurrence of infectious complications (all P6.9 ng/L and a TNF-α level >8.1 ng/L on POD 1 and >7.5 ng/L on POD 3 were confirmed as sensitive and specific predictors of complications (P},
