Leonard Salz, MD, on hope and hype

Some regular readers of the cancer literature may want to see an article just published in the Journal of Clinical Oncology by Leonard Salz, MD (a world-famous colorectal cancer specialist) on the way in which language affects perceptions in the world of cancer communication.

The article basically says we all need to be more specific about how we explain things like the difference between “significant” and “statistically significant” or what we mean by “toxicity was tolerable” in a clinical trial. And Dr. Salz makes many good points that The “New” Prostate Cancer InfoLink will do its best to take to heart!
