Future Needs for Clinical Investigative Studies

Part of the Recent Results in Cancer Research / Fortschritte der Krebsforschung / Progrès dans les recherches sur le cancer book series (RECENTCANCER, volume 4)


It is obvious from this brief survey of laser cancer research that many studies are partially or wholly incomplete probing often of a superficial pilot type of experiments. These attempt to indicate only trends of investigative studies. To forestall the cries of the disturbed and wholly justified critics, it is admitted that, at present perhaps, not even a monograph on the laser is warranted. However, the laser is here. It is more than ready and willing to move out of the physics laboratory and from the area of applied physical science. Also, many studies have been done already. Many of these are basic and well controlled. It is now time to study man.
