abstract

  • Although Tl-201 scintigraphy was used as a tool for the assessment of response to chemotherapy in patients with OS, the AR did not appear to be predictive of EFS in this small group of patients. It is necessary to use the outcome variables of ultimate interest-EFS and overall survival- and not rely on surrogates for outcome to evaluate potential prognostic factors.
