Integrated therapy for locally advanced bladder cancer: Final report of a randomized trial of cystectomy plus adjuvant M-VAC versus cystectomy with both preoperative and postoperative M-VAC
Antineoplastic Combined Chemotherapy Protocols
Urinary Bladder Neoplasms
These results lend further support to the impression from small randomized trials that, in a high-risk cohort, there is an improved cure fraction by the combination of multiagent chemotherapy and surgery, although we found no preferred sequence. Importantly, it is possible to select appropriate patients for such therapy on the basis of clinical staging information. These results establish a benchmark of outcome for this cohort.
