Neoadjuvant Therapy of Breast Cancer

Neoadjuvant Therapy of Breast Cancer Primary systemic therapy is defined as the first systemic treatment a patient receives after cancer is diagnosed, and indicates that subsequent therapies are intended. It is also known as preoperative, induction, or neoadjuvant systemic therapy. Because of high tumor regression rates, primary systemic chemotherapy has become part of the standard of multidisciplinary care for patients with locally advanced and inflammatory breast cancer. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png American Journal of Cancer Springer Journals

Abstract

Primary systemic therapy is defined as the first systemic treatment a patient receives after cancer is diagnosed, and indicates that subsequent therapies are intended. It is also known as preoperative, induction, or neoadjuvant systemic therapy. Because of high tumor regression rates, primary systemic chemotherapy has become part of the standard of multidisciplinary care for patients with locally advanced and inflammatory breast cancer.
