Neoadjuvant Chemotherapy

Increasing Relevance in Cancer Management

Edited by Maurie Markman

The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, United States of America

In the chapters of this excellent text, the authors have described advances in the neoadjuvant chemotherapeutic management of a number of tumor types. Based on the extensive experience with this management concept in breast cancer, several chapters are devoted to this important topic (Section 1). Section 2 deals with the administration of neoadjuvant chemotherapy in non-breast malignancies. Those who read and study the content of the chapters in this book will come away with a far greater understanding of the rationale supporting neoadjuvant chemotherapy, the existing evidence-based data regarding its use, limitations of the approach, and required future investigative efforts to learn how to optimize the benefits of this innovative management concept.
