  66. 66. Effective biomarkers are needed to optimize chemotherapy in two directions:
  67. 67. To identify patients that can be spared from toxic chemotherapy
  68. 68. To define the optimal Cht regimen for each individual patient
  69. 69. Better understanding of long term side effects of Cht might help us to further refine our strategies. </li>
