Introduction
Colorectal cancer (CRC) is traditionally regarded as the most commonly diagnosed gastrointestinal malignant disease. Nevertheless, despite advances in diagnosis and novel therapeutic options, the clinical outcomes of patients are still unsatisfactory.

Aim
To investigate the clinicopathological and prognostic roles of GRP94 expression, the immunohistochemical investigation was performed on samples of CRC tumour tissues, adjacent non-pathological mucosa, and metastatic foci in regional lymph nodes in Caucasian patients.

Material and methods
Paraffin-embedded adenocarcinoma samples were assessed immunohistochemically for GRP94 protein and scored according to the percentage of cells with positive reaction combined with staining intensity. Connections between GRP94 immunoexpression and clinicopathological factors including the overall survival (OS) were evaluated.

Results
The level of the GRP94 immunohistochemical reactivity was correlated with the grade of the histological differentiation (H (2.92) = 25.906; p < 0.001), size of the primary tumour (Z = –4.010; p < 0.001), regional lymph node involvement (Z = –6.547; p < 0.001), and perineural invasion (Z = –6.235; p < 0.001). Kaplan-Meier survival analysis showed that the survival time for patients with a low expression of GRP94 was significantly longer than that for patients with a moderate or strong level of GRP94 immunoreactivity (p < 0.001).

Conclusions
An enhanced level of GRP94 immunoexpression was significantly associated with malignancy-related clinicopathological factors and reduced the 5-year overall survival in CRC patients. However, a multivariate analysis demonstrated that GRP94 was not revealed as an independent risk factor for CRC prognosis.
