Accelerated Chemo/Standard Doses

ABSTRACT: Accelerated-Intensified Cyclophosphamide, Epirubicin, and Fluorouracil Compared With Standard CEF in Metastatic Breast Cancer Patients: Results of a Multicenter, Randomized Phase III Study of the Italian Gruppo Oncologico Nord-Ouest-Mammella Inter Gruppo Group

PURPOSE: To evaluate whether an accelerated-intensified cyclophosphamide, epirubicin, and fluorouracil (CEF) chemotherapy regimen with the support of granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (G-CSF) induces a higher activity and efficacy compared with standard CEF in metastatic breast cancer patients.

CONCLUSION: In metastatic breast cancer patients, an 80% increase in dose-intensity of the CEF regimen, obtained by both acceleration and dose intensification, does not improve the activity and the efficacy compared with a standard dose-intensity CEF regimen.
