A Randomized Phase III Trial of the Value of Early Local Therapy for the Intact Primary Tumor in Patients with Metastatic Breast Cancer
Growing evidence suggests that there is molecular communication between the primary tumor and the pre metastatic niche. Secretion of growth factors, proliferation factors, and stimulatory signals starting from the primary tumor may play a role in the growth of the metastatic lesion.
Data from other tumor types point to a possible survival advantage for
patients with distant metastases undergoing resection of the primary tumor.
