ents had stable disease and two patients had progressive disease. The critical dose-limiting toxicities (i.e., dose-limiting toxicities in cycle 1) occurring in the 5 mg daily treatment group included grade 3/4 neutropenia, grade 3 stomatitis, grade 3 fatigue and grade 3 anorexia. In the 30 mg weekly treatment group, grade 3/4 neutropenia was the only critical dose-limiting toxicity. There were no critical dose-limiting toxicities in the 20 mg weekly RAD001 treatment arm. The most commonly reported grade 3/4 adverse events (greater than or equal to 10%) suspected of being related to study treatment were neutropenia, stomatitis and leukopenia.

About breast cancer
