, extensive peritonectomy, etc.) 2 , which increase morbidity of patients. Not all patients are candidates for primary surgery, either due to extend of their disease (unlikely to achieve no residual disease) or due to poor general condition (too ill to undergo an extensive operation). In this situation patients are treated with initial (neoadjuvant) chemotherapy, typically a combination of a platinum-based drug and a taxane. 3 Patients, who are treated with neoadjuvant chemotherapy, are more likely to undergo surgery with no residual disease than patients with primary

Diagnostic accuracy of MRI to evaluate tumour response and residual tumour size after neoadjuvant chemotherapy in breast cancer patients

Introduction Neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NAC) has been used in the management of large operable breast tumours with the purpose of modifying the surgical planning and increase the rate of breast conservative surgery (BCS). 1 – 6 Currently, NAC has been extended to selected patients with early-stage disease to improve the cosmetic outcome of BCS, especially in women with small breast size. 7 – 9 NAC has proved to be equivalent to postoperative chemotherapy in terms of disease-free and overall survival. 10 – 12 However, in the neoadjuvant setting, there is

Primary debulking surgery versus primary neoadjuvant chemotherapy for high grade advanced stage ovarian cancer: comparison of survivals

in evaluating the feasibility of a successful PDS; at this regard recent prospective studies demonstrated a good accuracy of laparoscopic score in predicting residual disease after PDS. 7 However, randomized trials are mandatory to confirm these encouraging results. For patients in whom a complete cytoreduction during primary surgery is not expected, neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NACT) followed by interval debulking surgery (IDS) is considered the most appropriate therapeutic option. 2 , 8 Recent studies demonstrated that such strategy allows higher rate of

They achieved a high rate of pCR, but it was accompanied by higher toxicity and had no impact on survival. 5 , 6 In the search for improving the rate of pCR and the control of micrometastatic disease without causing greater toxicity, the intensification of standard chemotherapy (ChT) treatment in the neoadjuvant setting, namely by integrating
