The cost implications of some short course chemotherapy regimens are analysed. A methodology for quantification of the benefits of short course chemotherapy taking into account the cost per stable quiescence of some regimens is outlined—other benefits quantified are better response in those who abscond early, those with initial drug resistance and easier amenability of failures to re-treatment it. The study shows that some short course regimens may potentially be cost wise comparable to conventional regimens.
