A RECENT REPORT in the literature was unable to associate the local-regional recurrence rates in breast cancer with devotions from the protocol's recommend dosages. The investigators proceeded to infer that there was acceptable leeway“ in the use of radiotherapy. The present manuscript examines the validity of certain statistical inferences drawn by these investigators.
