What does this sentence mean? Thanks a lot ! In the OPTIMOX1 study, the stop and go arm has less incidence of neurotoxicity without negative impact on the efficacy, but the doses of oxaliplatin in the two arms were not balanced . I am not sure the meaning of "the stop and go arm",what does it mean??

I had to Google to find out what the study was about. The patients were divided into two "arms," or sections of the study. One section received oxaliplatin every two weeks until progression, and the other section received it for 6 cycles, then stopped for 12 cycles, and then resumed it again. This second section was the "stop and go arm." Arm" is a somewhat unusual word to use in this situation, but as the study was done in France, perhaps it's a translation issue.

stop and go表示走走停停的、定期停止的,arm在这表示组,应该确实是个translation issue了。。。
