Treatment is primarily focused to reduce the side effects of chemotherapy and radiotherapy.
During chemotherapy treatment, it is important to minimize side effects, to be better tolerated and to complete the protocol cycles without interruption. It is necessary to control the immunity by leukocyte count test, since if the count is less than 3000, chemotherapy is postponed until it reaches these levels. On the other hand, the immune system is important in the control of cancer growth and once the chemotherapy cycles are finished it is necessary to recover the normal values of leukocytes in the shorter possible time.
