Abstract

A significant amelioration of treatment results is achieved by sequential chemotherapy and radiotherapy in patients with lymphogranulomatosis of stage IIb to IVb and in patients with non-Hodgkin's lymphomas in corresponding stages. Similar results will probably be obtained in patients with small cell bronchial carcinomas in a limited stage. Patients suffering from an initially inoperable ovarian cancer often reach an operable condition by sequential chemotherapy and radiotherapy. In the stages Dukes B2 and C of the rectum carcinoma, preoperative and/or postoperative irradiation significantly reduces the recurrence rates and increases the survival times. A considerable reduction of recurrence rates is obtained by postoperative radiotherapy in soft tissue sarcomas of the stages T1 to T3. Another improvement is anticipated by a neutron or neutron boost irradiation for stage T3 and by adjuvant chemotherapy for G3 tumors. In the osteosarcoma of adult persons, the results of the limb-sparing sequential therapy will not be worse than the results achieved by amputation. Retrospective analyses of the long-term results of radical mastectomy and conservative operation with postoperative irradiation in case of mammary carcinoma did not show any difference for the stages T1 to T3, N0 to N1.
