Abstract

PURPOSE: To evaluate the opinion of patients with tumors who chose spontaneously to undergo the traditional anti-cancer treatment about Di Bella's therapy after the negative results of the experimental trial. MATERIALS AND METHODS: From November 23rd, 1998 to December 10th, 1998 a questionnaire was distributed among 50 patients with tumors. The questionnaire was anonymous, self-administered and included 9 questions. The data were compared, when possible, with those obtained in a previous study. RESULTS: Overall, 40 (70%) patients accepted favourably the conventional therapy; 27 (54%) patients did not believe in the experimental trial, as it was performed; 34 (68%) patients think the experimental trial should be repeated. CONCLUSIONS: The negative results of the experimental trial caused a distrustful feeling towards the Di Bella multi-therapy; but there is much confusion. There is a strong feeling that the conventional medicine is linked to powerful interests of the international pharmaceutical firms.
