Abstract

Purpose: Colorectal cancer is the third most common cancer in men and second in women, estimated to cause 694,000 deaths worldwide in 2012. Although 5-year survival rate of CRC has increased, inoperable metastatic colorectal cancer (mCRC) is almost always fatal. The aim of this systematic review is to outline the maintenance strategies that increase the chance and duration of survival with less toxicity and sustained quality of life.
