Erman Akkus, Medical Oncology Fellow at Ankara University shared a post on X:

“Is oncologic treatment of very advanced disease associated with improved survival?

No differences in OS between patients treated at the highest and the lowest NQF 0210 quintiles

  • NQF 0210 (patients receiving chemotherapy in the last 14 days of life).
  • breast cancer, colorectal cancer, non–small cell lung cancer [NSCLC], pancreatic cancer, renal cell carcinoma, and urothelial cancer.
