There were no significant difference between modern conventional treatment with CAM in NPC patients on late stage group(P = 0.444),aged 41-50 years old group(p=0.473) , male group (p=0.548), and female group(p=0.308) . Conclusion: Analysis of survival rates concluded that the use of CAM therapies do not affect survival rates of NPC patients.
