“The Contribution of Cytotoxic Chemotherapy to 5-year Survival in Adult Malignancies” (PDF)

Studied were the 5-year survival rates of chemotherapy on 22 types of cancers in the US and Australia.

154,971 Americans & Australians cancer patients, age 20 and older, were treated with chemotherapy.

Study Conclusion:“As the 5-year survival rate in Australia is now over 60%, it is clear that cytotoxic chemotherapy only makes a minor contribution to cancer survival.To justify the continued funding and availability of drugs used in cytotoxic chemotherapy, a rigorous evaluation of the cost-effectiveness and impact on quality of life is urgently required.”

Chemotherapy contributed on average only 2,1% to the overall survival rate! Continue reading »
