METHODS One hundred and forty-one patients with breast (n = 115) or(More)
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the frequency of detecting occult tumor cells in peripheral blood stem cell (PBSC) harvests and to determine the impact of infusing such cells on relapses after high-dose chemotherapy (HDC). Peripheral blood stem cell harvests from 223 patients with breast cancer were examined by an immunocytochemistry (ICC) method(More)
The authors determined outcomes for patients with localized high-risk breast cancer undergoing sequential outpatient treatment with conventional-dose adjuvant therapy, chemotherapy, and growth factor mobilization of peripheral blood stem cells (PBSC) and high-dose chemotherapy (HDC) with PBSC support in community cancer centers. Ninety-six patients with(More)
