Abstract

Not long ago, disseminated disease was almost invariably fatal, but now patients with metastatic as well as localized tumors are routinely cured at rates of 90% or more. Development of synergistic platinum-based regimens, administered in high doses for short periods, spearheaded the breakthrough. When properly timed, radiotherapy and surgery remain important and effective modalities.
