The trial was stopped after accrual of 144 patients. After median follow up of 4.4 years, there was no survival benefit with chemotherapy (hazard ratio 0.84, 95 per cent confidence interval 0.52 to 1.35, P=0.466). Chemotherapy did reduce the number of lymph node metastases at operation, but also increased the risk of perioperative complications: 27 vs. 16 per cent, P=0.09.Pubmed Link
