SARI -Though adjuvant chemotherapy has been a standard in the systemic treatment of many cancers, its adverse side effects are of considerable concern. The possible side effects include anemia, fatigue, gastro-intestinal dysfunction, hair loss, infection, memory changes, etc. (1).

In addition, chemotherapy is associated with a life-long reduced rate of employment (3).
