Granulocyte Colony-Stimulating Factor
Taxol is highly active as initial chemotherapy for metastatic breast cancer. Administration of rhG-CSF reduced the incidence, depth, and duration of neutropenia, compared with published prior experience. Further studies of Taxol in breast cancer, including combinations with other active agents, are clearly warranted.
