High-dose chemotherapy with AHPCS for the treatment of breast cancer. The University of Colorado results.


Conference Paper

In summary, the administration of effective high-dose chemotherapy regimens at a time of minimal tumor burden should eradicate disease in selected breast cancer patients who otherwise have little chance of prolonged disease-free survival following standard-dose treatments. The results are particularly promising for breast cancer patients with high-risk stage II/III, and NED or responsive stage IV disease. Many studies to confirm these hypotheses are in progress. New high-dose chemotherapy regimens, together with methods to reduce tumor contamination of the graft and new treatment modalities should improve the current results in patients with breast cancer.
