Association of Treatment Adherence With Oncologic Outcomes for Patients With Rectal Cancer

Postby CRguy » Wed Jul 22, 2020 2:26 pm

TAKE-HOME MESSAGE

The authors of this post hoc analysis of a randomized phase III trial evaluated the impact of treatment adherence to neoadjuvant chemoradiotherapy and/or adjuvant chemotherapy on disease-free survival among 1232 patients with locally advanced rectal cancer. Complete adherence to neoadjuvant chemoradiotherapy compared with reduced adherence was associated with improved 3-year disease-free survival. However, complete versus incomplete adherence to adjuvant chemotherapy was not associated with disease-free survival.

Future trials should be designed to facilitate the delivery of optimal neoadjuvant chemoradiotherapy.
