121 Cases of oral malignancies have been treated by three fractions per week and the results are compared with 109 approximately identical cases treated by conventional five days a week with other parameters being identical. Radical irradiation was done by 6000rad in 6 week (1770 r.c.u) and palliative dose was 4500 rad in 4 week (1530 r.e.u) Tumour regression was found markedly superior by conventional fegime in radically irradiated cases but much less superior for palliative treatment. Acute and late reaction as well as tumour control at one year was better with daily treatment, more in radically treated cases, but superiority of daily regime was less marked in palliative treatment. Three fractions per week can be alternatively used for palliation in advanced cases.
