Abstract : Neoadjuvant chemotherapy is the application of cytotoxic treatment prior to a definitive surgery or radiation with intent to cytoreduce the tumor bulk mak- ing it amenable for a complete resection or definitive radiation. Neoadjuvant chemotherapy has a role in the treat- ment of stage II and III urinary bladder cancer. The current standard for muscle-invasive bladder cancer patients is cisplatin-based neoadjuvant chemotherapy followed by radical cystectomy and pelvic lymph-node dissection.
