BACKGROUND For certain types of cancer, resection alone rarely achieves a cure, but patients nevertheless tend to have a prolonged survival before they die of the tumor. For other types of cancer, the opposite scenario prevails, suggesting that those biologic mechanisms that allow a curative resection are not identical to those that determine survival time among uncured patients. METHODS The multivariate log-normal model can be used to detect the association of cured fraction and median… CONTINUE READING
