Docetaxel/Doxorubicin/Cyclophosphamide in the Treatment of Metastic Breast Cancer

June 01, 1997

A pilot phase II study examined the feasibility of 75 mg/m² of docetaxel (Taxotere) in combination with 50 mg/m²of doxorubicin and 500 mg/m² of cyclophosphamide (Cytoxan, Neosar) in the first-line treatment of metastatic breast cancer. This study was designed to evaluate the efficacy and toxicity of the docetaxel/doxorubicin/cyclophosphamide combination both alone and as induction before high-dose chemotherapy, supplemented by autologous peripheral blood stem-cell transplantation.
