Taxotere(R)-Based Chemotherapy Significantly Improved Overall Survival Compared With Standard Anthracycline-Based Chemotherapy in Early Stage Breast Cancer

Oral Presentation of the US Oncology Adjuvant Trial 9735 at 2007 San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium Showed Taxotere(R) and Cyclophosphamide

Improved Overall Survival Versus An Anthracycline Combination

SAN ANTONIO, Dec. 13 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Results presented at the 30th annual San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium (SABCS) showed that for women with early stage breast cancer who have had surgery, treatment with the investigational chemotherapy combination of Taxotere(R) (docetaxel) Injection Concentrate and cyclophosphamide significantly improved overall survival compared to standard chemotherapy. The presentation reports results with a median follow-up of seven years and has been updated since the last report was published with 5.5 years median follow-up [Jones S et al. J Clin Oncol, 2006, 24:5381-7]. This latest report has also been updated from the abstract submitted to SABCS 2007.

In the updated analysis, overall survival at seven years was statistically higher among women treated with Taxotere(R) and cyclophosphamide (TC) versus those treated with doxorubicin and cyclophosphamide (AC): 87% versus 82% (HR: 0.69, [95% CI, 0.50, 0.97]). The 31% reduction in the risk of death was statistically significant (p=0.032). At seven years, the disease-free survival (DFS) was also statistically greater among women treated with TC than those treated with AC: 81% versus 75% (HR: 0.74, [95% CI, 0.56, 0.98]). The 26% reduction in the risk of cancer recurrence among women treated with TC was statistically significant (p=0.033). The disease-free survival benefit seen in the elderly patients (aged 65 years or older; 31% risk reduction of recurrence) is consistent with that in the overall patient population.

Principal study investigator Dr. Stephen Jones, medical director and co-chair, breast cancer research committee of US Oncology, helped develop the regimen combining the anthracycline doxorubicin with cyclophosphamide, which became a
