What is Neoadjuvant Chemotherapy ?
Neoadjuvant chemotherapy is a type of chemotherapy prescribed to patients in order to shrink a cancer prior to surgery. Chemotherapy is actually a term which covers a wide variety of chemical treatments used to curb the spread of rapidly dividing cells in the body. Several medical terms referring to courses of chemotherapy treatment are often confused. Adjuvant, neoadjuvant, and induction are chemo therapies which perform different functions related to destroying cancer cells or preventing a recurrence of cancer.
Adjuvant chemotherapy is given to kill ‘left-over’ or microscopic cells that may linger after a known tumor is removed by surgery lowering the chance of recurrence. Induction chemotherapy is giving to induce a remission and is usually part of a treatment for acute leukemia.
