was also related to the postoperative survival time ( P = 0.030).
However, patients with stage 3 disease treated with adjuvant therapy
did display a trend towards improvement with a 3.89-year longer median RFS.
may significantly improve long-term survival and should be considered an important part of treatment for patients diagnosed with stage III NSCLC.

and patients without adjuvant therapy
Trastuzumab as adjuvant therapy
for early breast cancer, the importance of accurate human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 testing.
The significance of anterior segment invasion as a putative risk factor for extraocular relapse is uncertain and adjuvant chemotherapy has been recommended by some authors, (13,14) whereas some authors recommend withholding the adjuvant therapy
in such cases.
A survey of surgeons at 6 New York hospitals treating 119 women, who did not receive guideline-recommended adjuvant therapy
, points out some contributing factors contributing to this.
Recombinant interferon alpha-2b and coenzyme Q10 as a postsurgical adjuvant therapy
for melanoma: a 3-year trial with recombinant interferon-alpha and 5-year follow-up.
A new adjuvant therapy
trial based on sensitivity profiling of each individual's tumour, and subsequent randomisation between a standard therapy or one based around the profile (e.g.
It is obvious that adjuvant therapy
methods, which probably show smaller effects, need especially large and cost-intensive RCTs.
In addition to surgery, adjuvant therapy
is used to kill any cancer cells that may have spread.
The results showed that the addition of Herceptin to standard adjuvant therapy
"significantly" reduced the risk of breast cancer recurrence, the primary endpoint of the studies, by 52 percent (or a hazard ratio of 0.48) in women with HER2-positive breast cancer, compared to those patients who received standard adjuvant therapy
alone, according to Genentech.
