It is suggested that it is best to use radiotherapy in the post-surgical treatment of malignant glioma and to continue the search for an effective chemotherapeutic regimen to use in addition to radiotherapy.

- D. Byar
Results of the Veteran’s Administration randomised trial comparing placebo, pyridoxine and topical thiotepa in preventing recurrence of Stage I bladder tumours have stimulated a new trial to be performed by members of the EORTC Urological Group, scheduled to begin early in 1979.
Evaluation of Response-Time Data Involving Transient States: An Illustration Using Heart-Transplant Data
Modified life tables can be constructed which reflect changes in an individual's status, and associated measures of relative risk and statistical significance calculated, when the group membership of an individual can be arbitrarily varied during a study.
The choice of treatment for cancer patients based on covariate information.
This paper discusses the analysis of data from clinical trials in an effort to determine whether comparisons of treatment in various subsets of patients yield sufficiently different results to…
