Abstract

Despite the marked improvement in the chemotherapeutic and irradiation methods in treatment of cancer, therapy is effective only in certain patients. In order to achieve further improvement in oncological treatment, there is a trend today to treat cancer cases with various combinations of the standard therapeutic methods. Data which has accumulated during the past 20 yr suggests that a therapeutic approach based on combined treatment results in a better prognosis and improved results in certain malignant tumors. A discussion is presented of the most commonly used combinations of surgical, irradiation, and chemotherapeutic methods. The importance is stressed of the need for cooperation and coordination between the various hospital departments in treating cancer patients, and of the need for standardization of the treatment schedules in use at the different medical centers.
