(15) This policy, which prevents many travellers and overseas residents from benefitting from one of the most effective prophylactic treatments on the market today, thereby indirectly causing a number of pernicious cases of malaria, is based on the unfounded, unproved premise that wide use of this drug would foster the development of méfloquine-resistance or on side-effects, which are in fact rarely of any consequence and always curable.
(16) Smaller tumours are less curable because of inefficient absorption of radiation energy, and larger tumours are less curable because of greater clonogenic cell number.
(17) The best way to eradicate these cancers will be through early detection, when they are still curable by surgery.” Scientists have known for more than a century that some tissue types give rise to cancer millions of times more often than others , but why this should be so has not been clear.
(18) The Surgical Endoscopy Service has been aggressively evaluating gastrointestinal symptoms with colonoscopy and screening asymptomatic patients with flexible sigmoidoscopy in hopes of finding early curable colorectal cancers.

(imp. & p. p.) of Cure
(1) In all cases the polyarthritis is cured by anti-inflammatory treatment in 1-6 months.
(2) Because of the small number of patients reported in the world literature and lack of controlled studies, the treatment of small cell carcinoma of the larynx remains controversial; this retrospective analysis suggests that combination chemotherapy plus radiation offers the best chance for cure.
(3) The results indicated that roughly 25% of patients treated in this way will become hypothyroid after 5 years and that 85% are cured (need no further therapy during the follow-up period) using a single dose of iodine-131.
(4) We report a retrospective study of 107 cases of carcinoma of the sigmoid colon and upper rectum treated for primary cure at the University of California at Los Angeles Hospital between 1955 and 1970.
(5) HDAra-C in combination with anthracyclines is now considered to be a treatment which may afford some hope of a cure in a certain percentage of cases of adult acute non-lymphocytic leukemia.
(6) Since the plasmid-cured strains did not contain DNA sequences homologous to plasmid DNA, the gene for the free-inclusion protein must be encoded in the chromosome.
(7) In Stage I, seven relapses (relapse rate 6%) occurred after irradiation; three of them were cured with second-line therapies.
(8) Although patients treated with postoperative radiation therapy showed significantly extended survival rates as compared to those receiving surgical resection alone, the glioblastoma recurred within a 2cm margin of the primary site in more than 90% of the patients and conventional external radiation therapy with a doses of 50-60 Gy did not result in local cure.
(9) Percutaneous tenotomy performed only in patients recurring after temporary cure, drops the rate of recurrences to 13%.
(10) Long-term health conditions cannot be 'cured' – interventions are themselves long-term – taking place throughout the life of a patient.
(11) These alterations were not dependent on the prophage integration prior to curing, and no phage DNA was detected in cured cells by blot hybridisation.
(12) About 10% of the patients treated had “complete remission”, with no detectable cancer remaining - considered a cure if the patient is still cancer-free five years after diagnosis.
(13) Fifteen apparently normal patients who had been cured of cryptococcosis were found, as a group, to have impaired responsiveness to skin testing with cryptococcin and mumps, minimal leukocyte migration inhibition when stimulated with cryptococcin or C. neoformans, but normal group responses to cryptococcin in Cryptococcus-induced lymphocyte transformation.
