From February 1983 to January 1985, 497 patients with advanced breast cancer were randomly allocated to receive either epirubicin or doxorubicin in the following combination chemotherapy regimen: fluorouracil (5-FU) 500 mg/m2 intravenous (IV) on days 1 and 8; epirubicin or doxorubicin 50 mg/m2 IV on day 1; cyclophosphamide 500 mg/m2 IV on day 1 (FEC or(More)
The authors treated 39 heavily pretreated breast cancer patients, median age 72, with a combined oral regimen featuring idarubicin and cyclophosphamide, administered without hospitalization in cycles repeated every 4 weeks for a total not to exceed idarubicin 400 mg/m2. Treatment was remarkably well tolerated, with generally mild hematological toxicity and(More)
