Sample text

A recent meta-analysis of several reported randomized trials of chemotherapy and hormonal therapy in 31,510 women with advanced breast cancer suggested that multiagent regimens were associated with higher response rates than were seen with monotherapy. Chemotherapeutic regimens containing an anthracycline were generally more active than those that did not. In the meta-analysis, more intensive therapy tended to produce higher response rates but at the same time led to greater toxicity. The meta-analysis reported an improved survival rate with doxorubicin-containing regimens compared to older drug combinations (7).

As a consequence, the presence of asymptomatic visceral metastases in those with hormone-sensitive breast cancer should no longer be the sole reason to favor chemotherapy over effective endocrine therapy. Prior sensitivity to tamoxifen in advanced disease has been a clinical factor often cited as a predictor for the likelihood of response to a further endocrine agent (16). Patients who have received tamoxifen for advanced disease may be categorized as responders if they show an objective response (CR or PR) or have stabilization of disease for at least 6 months (SD).
