Current status of the taxanes as adjuvant therapy for breast cancer
Adjuvant chemotherapy for breast cancer reduces the risks of recurrence and death in many subsets of patients. The quest for better regimens, defined as both more effective and less toxic has led to numerous clinical trials testing the taxanes in the adjuvant setting. These trials are generally positive but do not clearly identify a single best or ideal regimen for all patients. This paper reviews the available data in this area of clinical research.
