One weapon on this war on cancer is Quality of Life (QoL). On October 27, 2007 Dr. Nikolaou, on behalf of Fox Chase Medical Center (a National Comprehensive Cancer Network) published a double blind placebo controlled study titled “Quality of Life (QOL) Supersedes the Classic Predictors of Survival in Locally Advanced Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC).” The study was designed to evaluate the role of QoL as a prediction for survival. Some 91 percent of patients completed a standardized QoL survey before treatment. All patients were followed for at least 17 months. What they found is quality of life emerged as the most significant predictor of overall patient survival.
