Abstract

Today’s strategies for treatment of neoplastic disease, including extensive surgery, chemotherapy and radiotherapy, alone or in combination, have given acceptable results in a limited number of tumors. However, the results obtained in over thirty years with these methods cannot be considered satisfactory in the large majority of malignant tumors.
