Abstract

PURPOSE: To know and to evaluate the opinion of cancer patients tumors who chose voluntarily to undergo the traditional anti-cancer treatment about Di Bella's therapy when the scientific debate was at its climax. MATERIALS AND METHODS: From March 1, 1998 to May 25, 1998 a questionnaire was distributed to 50 cancer patients. The questionnaire was anonymous, self-administered and included 9 questions. RESULTS: Overall, 35 (70%) patients were in favour of Di Bella's method.; 39 (78%) patients think that it is a successful step against cancer; 35 (70%) patients were willing to undergo the treatment. CONCLUSIONS: The main reasons for the complete trust in Di Bella's therapy were: mass media's power, Prof. Di Bella's image, the absence of toxicity in his therapy. These reasons will be reevaluated at the end of the trial.
