Objective: Colorectal cancer is one of the first lines when examined the death cause of cancer. It is well known that family history, and racial and ethnic background and daily life are related with colorectal cancer and its treatment options are surgery, chemotherapeutic agents, and radiotherapy. One of the factors that play a critical role in the development of colorectal cancer is the oxidative stress. In this research, we aimed to investigate the association of level of glutathione peroxidase 1 (GPX1) and selenium element with colon cancer.
