Abstract

Micro-AbstractImproved outcomes in metastatic colorectal cancer are allowing patients to consider periods of reduced-intensity chemotherapy, however real-world use of these modifications is poorly described. In this population-based cohort, 39% of patients used either intermittent or maintenance chemotherapy during treatment and modifications were associated with improved outcomes, suggesting physicians can appropriately select patients who are safe to undergo treatment modifications.
