What I liked most about this ASCO presentation, was their titular word, "perioperative".
I could not discern how close to surgery they did "perioperative chemo", days or weeks.
I am big on perioperative, even more aggressive on perioperative since we could use many milder drugs and supplements up until NPO, 12-24 hours before surgery. My wife even did her double dose UFT chemo pills 24 hrs before surgery, so theoretically on chemo until 8-12 hours before surgery (daily chemo pills 2 - 1 - 1 about 8 hours apart, many people do 2 + 2 about 12 hours apart for convenience but my review was that 2-1-1 was better)
I really like the idea of no days off treatment for cancer cells.
