Dose-dense administration of chemotherapy and the addition of taxanes to anthracycline-based adjuvant chemotherapy have improved breast cancer survival substantially. However, clinical trials directly comparing the additive value of taxanes with dose-dense anthracycline-based chemotherapy are lacking.

We conducted a randomized phase III trial to determine whether adjuvant chemotherapy improves survival in women with uterine leiomyosarcoma.
Although doxorubicin has been widely used as an anticancer drug, it has dose-dependent toxic effects on ovarian follicle development and apoptosis, oocyte maturation and hormone secretion. Ca2+ signal...
Based on improvement in pathologic complete response (pCR) in the NeoSphere and TRYPHAENA studies, the FDA approved neoadjuvant pertuzumab for HER2+ localized breast cancer. These studies demonstrat...
Breast cancer treatment often includes Doxorubicin as adjuvant as well as neoadjuvant chemotherapy. Despite its cytotoxicity, cells can develop drug resistance to Doxorubicin. Uncovering pathways and ...
Surgery (+ radiation therapy in selected cases) is standard treatment for adult-type localized soft tissue sarcoma (STS). Accumulating randomized clinical evidence also supports adjuvant chemotherapy ...
This study will determine if docetaxel will be administered before or after doxorubicin/cyclophosphamides in an adjuvant chemotherapy regimen to be evaluated in a subsequent phase III tria...
Anthracycline based regimens followed by a taxane (CALGB-9344 trial and NSABP-B28) or reversed (MD Anderson Adjuvant Trial) has already accepted as adjuvant therapy for node positive breas...
This protocol will evaluate the feasibility and toxicity of dose-dense docetaxel followed by doxorubicin and cyclophosphamide with support given as adjuvant or neoadjuvant treatment of wom...
Primary objective : - To compare disease-free survival after treatment with docetaxel in combination with doxorubicin and cyclophosphamide to doxorubicin and cyclophosphamide foll...
A Study Comparing Atezolizumab (Anti PD-L1 Antibody) In Combination With Adjuvant Anthracycline/Taxane-Based Chemotherapy Versus Chemotherapy Alone In Patients With Operable Triple-Negative Breast Cancer
This study will evaluate the efficacy, safety, and pharmacokinetics of adjuvant atezolizumab in combination with paclitaxel, followed by atezolizumab, dose-dense doxorubicin or epirubicin ...
Antineoplastic antibiotic obtained from Streptomyces peucetius. It is a hydroxy derivative of DAUNORUBICIN.
An anthracycline which is the 4'-epi-isomer of doxorubicin. The compound exerts its antitumor effects by interference with the synthesis and function of DNA.
The dose amount of poisonous or toxic substance or dose of ionizing radiation required to kill 50% of the tested population.
Precursor of an alkylating nitrogen mustard antineoplastic and immunosuppressive agent that must be activated in the LIVER to form the active aldophosphamide. It has been used in the treatment of LYMPHOMA and LEUKEMIA. Its side effect, ALOPECIA, has been used for defleecing sheep. Cyclophosphamide may also cause sterility, birth defects, mutations, and cancer.
Radiotherapy given to augment some other form of treatment such as surgery or chemotherapy. Adjuvant radiotherapy is commonly used in the therapy of cancer and can be administered before or after the primary treatment.
