effects than benefits from the additional chemotherapy, which cost about 13,400 yuan ($2,000) per patient.
The findings, published in the journal Lancet Oncology in 2012, drew the attention of
Western experts, and the United States and Europe revised their treatment guidelines.
More recently, Ma added a new drug to the original dual drug ch
emotherapy regimen, and moved post-radiotherapy chemotherapy to pre-radiotherapy.
