abstract

  • These preliminary results suggest that multiple, rapidly cycled courses of high-dose myelosuppressive chemotherapy can be administered. PBPs, harvested during the G-CSF-augmented rebound from CPA-induced cytopenia, produce rapid hematologic recovery in patients undergoing high-dose chemotherapy (HDC). Further follow-up will be necessary to assess the efficacy of this specific regimen in the treatment of metastatic breast cancer.
