Neoadjuvant therapy was defined as a cytoreductive therapy administered prior to a definitive locoregional treatment - surgical resection. While surgical resection can be curative in patients diagnosed with localized early-stage non-small cell lung cancer, patients with nodal (N1, N2) disease are generally not candidates for exclusive surgery. Inductive therapy can improve the microscopic metastatic disease, eradicate the primary tumor and thereby improve survival.
