Multimodal therapy with induction chemotherapy has improved significantly local disease control and overall survival in patients with IBC. This is now considered standard therapy for patients with this disease. Although survival has been improved, well over 50% of these patients will succumb to this disease. Ongoing and future investigations may better define the optimal approach for local control, the optimal duration of maintenance chemotherapy, and the possible role of biologic response modifiers and growth factors in further improving the outcome for patients with this disease.
