Abstract

A general analysis of data on survival of patients with inoperable lung cancer obtained from 59 publications was undertaken by the linear regression method. It is suggested that the parameters reflecting the kinetics of survival of these patients be used as a "historical control" for assessment of the efficacy of new methods and treatment of lung cancer. It was shown with the aid of this control that antitumor chemotherapy increases the 6-month survival rate of patients with an immediate positive effect after chemotherapy.
