Generational switch in chemotherapy – from less effective to best medicines:
What India should have done in 1970s was accomplished in this program – a generational switch in chemotherapy. Instead of primitive and less potent drug-combination (STH regime), every patient would now thankfully be treated with some of the more effective and expensive drugs (SEHRZ) that heal speedily, within 6 months, thus ending 40 years of veiled injustice. This glorious switchover by itself has the potential of benefiting millions, sweepingly and is the most heartening feature of the program.
