  • G. Stoter
Part of the Ettore Majorana International Science Series book series (EMISS, volume 8)


The determination of prognostic factors is important in any disease in order to understand the natural history and to optimize the results of therapy, i e maximal therapeutic effect in relation to minimal toxicity.
