Abstract

Recently, Bataini et al. [4] reported that overall time was the major treatment-related determinant of local control in 465 squamous carcinomas of the tonsillar region. They did not, however, quantify the relationship or relate it to the doubling time of tumorigenic cells, except qualitatively. This note reports an attempt at that quantification.
