    Very hard to disagree. The excellent/long term responders possess some factor - either in their tumor cells, or in their immune system, that has placed them in the forefront. This is one area in which government research might be helpful, as they are definitely not profit driven. MTD is a concept from the stone-age of chemotherapy, when maximum doses were all that was known. It was likely driven by the then-current belief that chemotherapy was "the cure." Viewed strictly as an upper limit, MTD is good to know, but should not be the only factor investigated.
