Primarily, this clinical investigation compares the rates (percentages) of pathological complete remissions attained at the time of final surgery following 6 cycles each of epirubicin + docetaxel + capecitabine-containing chemotherapy vs. epirubicin + docetaxel-containing chemotherapy.

Docetaxel Followed by CEF (Cyclophosphamide, Epirubicin and 5-Fluorouracil) Compared to Docetaxel and Capecitabine Followed by CEX (Cyclophosphamide, Epirubicin and Capecitabine) as Adjuvant Treatment for Breast Cancer
This study compares two chemotherapy regimens as adjuvant treatment for breast cancer. The study participants are randomly allocated to receive either 3 cycles of docetaxel followed by 3 c...

UCBG 2-08: 5-year efficacy results from the UNICANCER-PACS08 randomised phase III trial of adjuvant treatment with FEC100 and then either docetaxel or ixabepilone in patients with early-stage, poor prognosis breast cancer.
UNICANCER-PACS08 compared adjuvant FEC (5-FU; epirubicin; cyclophosphamide) then docetaxel to FEC then ixabepilone in poor prognosis early breast cancer (BC). We evaluated whether replacing docetaxel ...

To examine how, and for what interactional purpose, a surgeon raises the risk of death with an early-stage breast cancer patient.
Nonhematologic adverse events (AEs) of docetaxel constitute an extra burden in the treatment of cancer patients and necessitate either a dose reduction or an outright switch of docetaxel for other reg...
Limited evidence suggests that inherited predisposing risk variants might affect the disease outcome. In this study, we analyzed the effect of genome-wide association studies-identified breast cancer-...
