Abstract:

Adjuvant chemotherapy is currently one of the most important «tools» in the treatment of many malignant tumors. However, if in the treatment of certain diseases its role and effectiveness is clear and understandable (breast cancer, colorectal cancer, melanoma, sarcomas), then for other pathologies, such as soft tissue sarcomas, its effectiveness and appropriateness is unproven.
