Various approaches are employed to manage Ca, especially those with metastasis.
Chemo is most commonly employed targeting cell cycle and DNA repair mechanisms. Radiation is also used to attack large inop tumors or residual tumor in the tumor bed. Target therapies are usually immunogenic agents targeting various growth factors and immunogenic proteins. Transplantation replaces damaged marrow
