Adjuvante zytostatische Chemotherapie: Zellkinetische Grundlagen

  • P. Dörmer
Conference paper
Part of the Hämatologie und Bluttransfusion book series (HAEMATOLOGY, volume 22)


Wenn man die Diskussion der adjuvanten zytostatischen Chemotherapie mit den zellkinetischen Grundlagen beginnt, dann könnte der Eindruck entstehen, daß die Zellkinetik die Entwicklung dieser Therapieform lenke. Es wird demgegenüber im folgenden zu zeigen sein, daß der Zellkinetik eher eine interpretative Rolle darüber zukommt, was in der Klinik an Ergebnissen gesammelt worden ist.
