recommendations for hepatocellular carcinoma patients after surgery using the Shanghai Score
Figure 2 compares Middlesex Hospital data (2010-2012) to data of the same stage and adjuvant treatment
type from the National Cancer Database, Community Cancer Center Data.
The long inclusion period of this cohort inadvertently causes differences in adjuvant treatment
between patients diagnosed in 2002 versus 2008, the most important of which is the addition of oxaliplatin to adjuvant therapy in 2004.
08 lymph nodes (mean [+ or -] SD) Adjuvant treatment
Post-operative adjuvant treatment
in high-risk group after optimal R0 surgery is not evaluated prospectively due to rarity of tumours.
Thus postoperative staging by CT scanning should be performed to exclude distant metastasis before the commencement of adjuvant treatment
, and systemic therapy should be a high priority in the design of adjuvant treatment
with zoledronic acid should be considered for premenopausal endocrine-responsive women to improve the standard of care, Dr.
Yet, in many cases, surgeons were unaware whether their patient was resistant to taking adjuvant therapy (56 percent of patients), understood the risks and benefits of adjuvant treatment
(54 percent), or could not tolerate adjuvant treatment
2) Adjuvant treatment
is employed when patients (1) require more than 4 surgical procedures per year, (2) manifest distal spread, or (3) experience airway distress following rapid regrowth of papillomas.
The current standard-of-care for high-risk malignant melanoma is surgical treatment and no effective adjuvant treatment
currently exists, which leaves this patient category wide open for new, effective products.
Food and Drug Administration has approved Herceptin (Trastuzumab) for use in the adjuvant treatment
of HER2-positive node-positive breast cancer.
2) In the United States, seven statistical models independently developed to investigate the reduction in death rates from breast cancer 1975-2000 show that mammographical screening and adjuvant treatment
contributed almost equally.
