Conclusions

This study suggests that with recent guideline recommendations, oncologists are increasingly offering adjuvant chemotherapy to patients aged 70–79, and increased use of adjuvant chemotherapy led to modest improvement in overall survival in patients ages 70–79. However, oncologists still hesitate to treat age 80+ group with adjuvant chemotherapy.
