This is an open -label randomized phase II study of dose-dense Fluorouracil/Epirubicin/Cyclophosphamide (FEC) administered with Epirubicin of 75mg/m2 (FEC75) and Epirubicin 90mg/m2 (FEC90) in untreated patients with early breast cancer.
Arm A: the FEC75 regimen will be given at the following doses:
Fluorouracil 500mg/m2 by i.v. bolus or infusion. Epirubicin 75mg/m2 by 30 minutes i.v infusion and Cyclophosphamide 500mg/m2 by i.v bolus or infusion. All three drugs will be administered intravenously on Day 1 of each 14-day cycles.
Arm B: the FEC90 regimen will be given at the following doses:
Fluorouracil 500mg/m2 by i.v. bolus or infusion.Epirubicin 90mg/m2 by 30 minutes i.v infusion and Cyclophosphamide 500mg/m2 by i.v bolus or infusion.
All three drugs will be administered intravenously on Day 1 of each 14-day cycles.
Pegfilgrastim fixed dose of 6mg as a single subcutaneous injection will be given in both arms on Day 2 of each cycle.
Six cycles of adjuvant chemotherapy will be administered in both arms (A + B)
Allocation: Randomized, Control: Active Control, Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Treatment

Cyclophosphamide, Methotrexate, and Fluorouracil, With or Without Epirubicin Hydrochloride, in Treating Women Who Have Undergone Surgery for Breast Cancer (Group III Closed to New Patients as of 12/7/2009)
RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as cyclophosphamide, methotrexate, fluorouracil, and epirubicin hydrochloride, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either ...
Adjuvant 6 Cycles of Docetaxel and Cyclophosphamide or 3 Cycles of Cyclophosphamide/Epirubicin/Fluorouracil Followed by 3 Cycles of Docetaxel Versus 4 Cycles of Epirubicin and Cyclophosphamide Followed by Weekly Paclitaxel in Operable Breast Cancer (MATTE
We aimed to evaluate the noninferiority of a short-term anthracycline-free chemotherapy (TC, six cycles of docetaxel and cyclophosphamide) or a short-term anthracycline-based 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...
In this open-label multicenter trial patients with operable or locally advanced breast cancer will be randomized to pre-operative treatment with 8 cycles of che motherapy (docetaxel follow...
The Danish Breast Cancer Cooperative Group (DBCG) wishes to clarify if recurrence-free and overall life expectancy is longer after docetaxel and cyclophosphamide compared to epirubicin and...
It is important to determine whether anthracycline-containing regimens or taxane-containing regimens are more effective in individual patients. The present study compared the efficacy of six cycles of...
Sarcopenia has been reported to be associated with higher mortality and increased toxicity of chemotherapy in breast cancer patients. However, evidence from Asian countries is scarce. Here, we investi...
Background Chemotherapy-induced febrile neutropenia is a common and potentially lethal side effect; therefore, predicting febrile neutropenia development is important. Objective This study examined th...
A wipe sampling procedure followed by a simple ultra-performance liquid chromatography - tandem mass spectrometry (UPLC-MS/MS) method was developed and validated for simultaneous quantification of six...
Increase in breast cancer survivorship, advancements in diagnostic imaging and standardization of contralateral breast screening before breast cancer surgery have resulted in increased detection of co...
A deoxycytidine derivative and fluorouracil PRODRUG that is used as an ANTINEOPLASTIC ANTIMETABOLITE in the treatment of COLON CANCER; BREAST CANCER and GASTRIC CANCER.
Abnormal accumulation of lymph in the arm, shoulder and breast area associated with surgical or radiation breast cancer treatments (e.g., MASTECTOMY).
Metastatic breast cancer characterized by EDEMA and ERYTHEMA of the affected breast due to LYMPHATIC METASTASIS and eventual obstruction of LYMPHATIC VESSELS by the cancer cells.
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.
A infiltrating (invasive) breast cancer, relatively uncommon, accounting for only 5%-10% of breast tumors in most series. It is often an area of ill-defined thickening in the breast, in contrast to the dominant lump characteristic of ductal carcinoma. It is typically composed of small cells in a linear arrangement with a tendency to grow around ducts and lobules. There is likelihood of axillary nodal involvement with metastasis to meningeal and serosal surfaces. (DeVita Jr et al., Cancer: Principles & Practice of Oncology, 3d ed, p1205)
In a clinical trial or interventional study, participants receive specific interventions according to the research plan or protocol created by the investigators. These interventions may be medical products, such as drugs or devices; procedures; or change...
