abstract

  • 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.
