RECENT ADVANCES IN TREATMENT OF CANCER

RECENT ADVANCES IN TREATMENT OF CANCER The pattern of recent advances in the treatment of cancer differs somewhat from that of the past. It represents, perhaps, an indication of a new trend, long foreseen, toward more radical surgery on the one hand and toward new biochemical approaches on the other. This denotes a strengthening of the position of surgery as a curative agent, coincidentally with an intensified search for new means of palliation and control. The procedure devised by Mohs,1 entitled "Chemosurgical Treatment of Cancer," has recently been the subject of a review of five year end results of its application to neoplasms of the ear. The method is beyond question an interesting one and deserving of careful consideration. Of 19 patients with squamous cell carcinoma treated, 9 are well after five years. It is unfortunate that no figure is given for the five year salvage in cases of disease recurrent after efforts at therapy http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png JAMA American Medical Association

Abstract

The pattern of recent advances in the treatment of cancer differs somewhat from that of the past. It represents, perhaps, an indication of a new trend, long foreseen, toward more radical surgery on the one hand and toward new biochemical approaches on the other. This denotes a strengthening of the position of surgery as a curative agent, coincidentally with an intensified search for new means of palliation and control. The procedure devised by Mohs,1 entitled "Chemosurgical Treatment of Cancer," has recently been the subject of a review of five year end results of its application to neoplasms of the ear. The method is beyond question an interesting one and deserving of careful consideration. Of 19 patients with squamous cell carcinoma treated, 9 are well after five years. It is unfortunate that no figure is given for the five year salvage in cases of disease recurrent after efforts at therapy
