Maintenance therapy

Maintenance therapy, or eradication therapy, is treatment that is given to help keep cancer from coming back after it has disappeared following initial therapy. It may also be used for patients with advanced cancer that cannot be cured to keep the cancer from spreading further. The treatment could be chemotherapy or another treatment.

Depending on a patient’s individual condition, maintenance therapy may be given for a long period of time.
