Why is it important?

Our study was the first to lead to the understanding of cancer patients' minds who were trying to treat their desperate diseases by taking anthelmintics in South Korea. From this study, we can find some hints to help them avoid the adverse effects of those treatments or follow the right methods to maximize the effectiveness of their cancer treatments.


I had heard from many people including advice professors, editors of several journals, and reviewers that this article was very interesting. This article will give you not only interesting points but also practical insights for developing cancer treatments or making policies governing the blind spots in health security.
