Adjuvant therapy is defined as the treatment given in addition to the primary (initial) treatment. In other words it is an additional treatment that is designed to help to reach the ultimate goal. Adjuvant therapy for cancer usually refers to surgery followed by chemo- or radiotherapy to help decrease the risk of the cancer recurring. Adjuvant therapy is most beneficial for advanced stages or aggressive cancers. It can be used in treatment of Brain Cancer, Breast Cancer, Lung Cancer, Throat & Stomach Cancer, Pancreatic Cancer, Colorectal Cancer, Prostate Cancer, Cervical Cancer, Ovarian Cancer, Bladder Cancer, Endometrial Cancer and Testicular Cancer etc. Adjuvant therapy is extremely strenuous, and not every patient will be physically able to handle extra treatment therefore it is important that people are healthy enough to handle adjuvant therapy. For this reason, it is important for people that they discuss their options with a doctor. An ideal patient for adjuvant treatment consideration is a patient with moderate to high risk of cancer recurrence, without any other serious illnesses, such as heart or liver disease, and with a good performance status. Patient undergoing adjuvant therapy will benefit from the extra treatment, enough so that it outweighs the drawbacks of potential side effects and the inconvenience of ongoing treatment.
Adjuvant treatment of breast cancer is designed to treat micro metastatic disease, or breast cancer cells that have escaped the breast and regional lymph nodes but have not yet had an established identifiable metastasis. Adjuvant therapy is often useful after primary treatments, such as surgery or radiation. Therapy given before the main treatment is neoadjuvant therapy. This type of adjuvant therapy can also decrease the chance of the cancer coming back. Neoadjuvant therapy is often used by physicians to make the primary treatment, such as an operation or radiation treatment easier or more effective.

Agents used in adjuvant breast cancer chemotherapy include Taxane, Anthracyclines, Tamoxifen, Aromatase Inhibitors. Combination chemotherapy regimens are standard recommendations in the adjuvant setting. Radiation therapy is highly localized & uses high power X-rays to kill breast cancer cells. Hormone therapy acts either by limiting a breast tumor’s ability to ‘accept’ hormones or by reducing the body’s production of certain hormones. Immunotherapy supplements the body’s defense systems. Targeted therapy limits the ability of a particular cellular abnormality to grow and flourish, the overall growth of the tumors may be slowed or even halted.
