Abstract

Preoperative 5-fluorouracil-based chemoradiation with optimal surgery provides very effective local control in locally advanced rectal cancer. Does adding oxaliplatin as a radiosensitizer provide any additional benefit? Is more always better? Jansen, R. L. H. & Beets, G. L. Nat. Rev. Clin. Oncol. 10, 12-13 (2013); published online 11 December 2012; doi:10.1038/nrclinonc.2012.217
