MYRON P. NOBLER, M.D.
The laboratory, clinical, and technical evidence and achievements of the past 40 years have been briefly summarized as an approach to the rationale for the present aggressive, large-field, high-dose radiation treatment of the lymphomas, which is curative in intent. Although there are still a great many questions unanswered and there are still many patients who do not survive, the survival figures most recently obtained show a striking improvement and a magnificent gain for humanity in terms of the rescue or prolongation of many otherwise lost lives. It is our fervent hope that the improved treatment techniques discussed below, used alone or in combination with the newer chemotherapeutic agents, will show an even greater rewards in terms of preservation of human life and in dealing with this challenging and puzzling group of malignancies.
