Abstract

Micro-AbstractConversion to resection after chemotherapy in metastatic colorectal cancer (CRC) patients with various organ metastases has not yet been investigated in detail. Multivariate analyses showed that single organ metastasis and liver metastasis and the use of biologic agents correlated with successful conversion therapy. Kaplan-Meier analyses suggested that the survival of patients who received successful conversion therapy was similar to that of stage IV CRC patients initially treated with curative surgery.
