Title

Complete pathological response (ypT0N0M0) after preoperative chemotherapy alone for stage IV rectal cancer

Abstract Complete pathological response occurs in 10-20% of patients with rectal cancer who are treated with neoadjuvant chemoradiation therapy prior to pelvic surgery. The possibility that complete pathological response of rectal cancer can also occur with neoadjuvant chemotherapy alone (without radiation) is an intriguing hypothesis.
