To date, the adjuvant therapy of the malignant tumors does not allow to cure the entire patients. One of the reasons is the great pathogenetic aspects of the cancer which are not taken into account during implement of this strategy. In this regard, it seems relevant to explore new directions that include the use of alternative drugs or methods with the antitumor effects.
