The author reflects on the chemotherapy of sarcomata in Great Britain. He states that chemotherapy can produce worthwhile responses in cases of sarcoma. The cases where this tumor has developed overt metastases we know of none surviving more than three years. He suggests that one must present themselves every week at the joint clinic and hope to give better services to patients through experts treatment.
