Neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NAC) involving two cycles of cisplatin plus fluorouracil is recommended in Japan as a standard treatment for resectable, locally advanced esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC). We have encountered patients who were administered incomplete chemotherapy because of adverse events or the patient's refusal of treatment. Here, we retrospectively investigated the influence on perioperative outcomes and long-term prognosis of patients with ESCC who underwent complete (two cycles) or incomplete (one cycle) NAC.

Drug treatment designed to further diminish the disease toward complete remission following INDUCTION CHEMOTHERAPY. It helps to consolidate the gains during induction chemotherapy and may be followed by MAINTENANCE CHEMOTHERAPY.
Treatment designed to help prevent a relapse of a disease following the successful primary treatments (INDUCTION CHEMOTHERAPY and CONSOLIDATION CHEMOTHERAPY) with a long-term low-dose drug therapy.
Initial drug treatment designed to bring about REMISSION INDUCTION. It is typically a short-term and high-dose drug treatment that is followed by CONSOLIDATION CHEMOTHERAPY and then MAINTENANCE CHEMOTHERAPY.
