Neoadjuvant Therapy in Oncology
Definition of Neoadjuvant Therapy
In oncology, neoadjuvant therapy is performed to promote or to enable curative therapy by reduction of tumor volume. Neoadjuvant therapy may consist of chemotherapy, hormone therapy or irradiation.
In oncology and clinical praxis, the term and definition of neoadjuvant therapy has to be seperated from adjuvant therapy and palliative therapy.
