Abstract To evaluate the prognostic value of preoperative serum carbohydrate antigen19-9 (CA19-9), carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA), and carbohydrate antigen 125 (CA125) for overall survival (OS) in patients with colorectal cancer (CRC). Preoperative serum CA19-9, CEA, and CA125 levels were detected by C12 protein chip diagnostic system in 80 patients with CRC, and the association of their preoperative status with the patients' OS was analyzed. Patients with positive preoperative serum CA19-9, CA125, and CEA had a worse survival comparing with those negative patients, the difference in CA19-9 and CA125 reached statistical significance (Log rank test, P<0.05), but the difference of CEA did not achieve statistical significance (Log rank test, P>0.05). The OS of patients with CRC with three positive tumor markers (TMs)<1 or 2 positive TMs
