Purpose: This randomized, multicenter, phase III study compared doxorubicin and docetaxel (AT) with doxorubicin and cyclophosphamide (AC) as first-line chemotherapy (CT) in metastatic breast cancer (MBC). RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as doxorubicin, cyclophosphamide, and paclitaxel, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from dividing. Protocol reviewed electronically by Medical Oncology Reference committee. Connecting you to information you can trust and support you can count on. Doxorubicin stops damaged cancer cells from continuing to grow, while cyclophosphamide stops cancer cells from reproducing. Link to the independent evaluation of the evidence completed in 2006/7 removed from the evidence section as no longer relevant. After their DNA is damaged, the cells can’t keep dividing, and their growth slows or stops. Routine screening for HBsAg and anti-HBc is recommended prior to initiation of treatment. The cost includes antineoplastic drugs only (not antiemetics, supportive medications or consumables), unless otherwise indicated. Rivaroxaban: avoid concurrent use with strong CYP3A4 and P‑gp  inhibitors. With emerging evidence that six cycles of fluorouracil-doxorubicin-cyclophosphamide (FAC) resulted in better outcomes than six cycles of cyclophosphamide-methotrexate-fluorouracil (CMF), with six cycles of CMF being equally effective as four cycles of AC, randomisation was limited to the six cycle regimen (Amendment 1). The study also compared the sequential use of both AC and CMF treatment to AC alone. Women with cancer of a higher grade and younger women often get this combination. Where there are differing unit costs based on vial sizes and tablet strengths, the mean unit cost is used.

For protocols that already recommend a NK-1 antagonist, the dose reduction of antiemetic dexamethasone has already been taken into account. In 100 people receiving Cyclophosphamide, Doxorubicin, and Paclitaxel, 3 or fewer may have: Severe skin rash with blisters and peeling which can involve mouth and other parts of the body A new cancer including cancer of bone marrow (leukemia) caused by chemotherapy Swelling of the body including the brain which may cause dizziness, confusion Avoid combination or monitor for decreased clinical response to doxorubicin, Increased toxicity of doxorubicin possible due to reduced clearance, Reduced efficacy of doxorubicin possible due to increased clearance, Monitor for decreased clinical response to doxorubicin, Increased effects/toxicity of dexamethasone due to inhibition of its metabolism via CYP3A4, Reduced contraceptive efficacy due to increased clearance. 2. Monitor digoxin serum levels; adjust digoxin dosage as appropriate. Erythematous or inflammatory skin reaction resembling severe sunburn at sites previously treated with radiotherapy can occur with certain antineoplastic drugs. They may vary between institutions and can be substituted to reflect individual institutional policy. Pink/red/orange discolouration of the urine. It would still be called AC-T.

Prophylaxis should be determined according to individual institutional policy. Haematological dose modifications updated as per consensus of the expert clinician group. The risk of clinical cardiotoxicity increases with a number of risk factors including higher total cumulative doses. This stops the cancer cells from growing and dividing.

Doxorubicin and several chemotherapeutic drugs (including cyclophosphamide) cause dyspigmentation. Expert Answer . Note: all dose reductions are calculated as a percentage of the starting dose. Cyclophosphamide works when the cells are in their resting phase (not dividing). Treatment may be resumed at the original dose or reduce the original dose of doxorubicin and cyclophosphamide to 80% of the original dose depending on clinical circumstances. Select here for recommended doses of alternative antiemetics. restricted to retrieving randomised control trials and systematic reviews. doses used prior to stem cell transplant; 60 mg/kg daily or 120 to 270 mg/kg over a few days), Avoid combination or monitor closely for pulmonary toxicity, Delayed effect. The cost of oral continuous therapy is based on a 28 day month. No changes and next review in 2 years. Sometimes the paclitaxel is given weekly at a lower dose instead of every 3 weeks. Both altered antiepileptic and antineoplastic levels may occur, possibly leading to loss of efficacy or toxicity. Docetaxol (taxotere) works in a similar way and is sometimes used instead of paclitaxel. AC was found to be preferable as it was completed more quickly, with less visits to health professionals, less days of chemotherapy administration and required use of less antiemetic medications. Continue safe handling precautions until 7 days after completion of drug(s). Increased risk of bone marrow depression; probably due to reduced clearance of active metabolites of cyclophosphamide, Avoid combination, consider alternative antihypertensive therapy or monitor for myelosuppression, Reduced efficacy of ciclosporin due to reduced serum concentration, Monitor ciclosporin levels; adjust dosage as appropriate; monitor response to ciclosporin, Prolonged apnoea due to marked and persistent inhibition of cholinesterase by cyclophosphamide, Alert the anaesthetist if a patient has been treated with cyclophosphamide within ten days of planned general anaesthesia, Increased risk of doxorubicin-induced cardiotoxicity, Avoid combination or monitor closely for cardiotoxicity, Sensitises the heart to the cardiotoxic effects of doxorubicin; also, doxorubicin may exacerbate cyclophosphamide induced cystitis, Monitor closely for cardiotoxicity and ensure adequate prophylaxis for haemorrhagic cystitis when combination is used, Reduced efficacy of doxorubicin (due to induction of glucose-regulated stress proteins resulting in decreased expression of topoisomerase II, The clinical effect of glucosamine taken orally is unknown.

Reduce dose of antiemetic dexamethasone by approximately 50% when adding a NK-1 antagonist. The schema of treatment was doxorubicin, given at a dose of 50 mg/m²as an intravenous bolus over 3 to 5 minutes, followed by 500 mg/m²of cyclophosphamide, also as an intravenous bolus, and then 1-hour later,75 mg/m² of docetaxel, administered as a 1-hour intravenous infusion.This cycle … A - Adriamycin ® (doxorubicin) Monitor INR regularly and adjust warfarin dosage as appropriate; consider alternative anticoagulant. Although rare, cardiac arrhythmias may occur during or immediately after doxorubicin administration. Anthracycline induced cardiotoxicity has been categorised into acute, early-onset chronic progressive and late-onset chronic progressive and is usually not reversible. The trial compared 4 cycles of 3 weekly AC (doxorubicin and cyclophosphamide) with 6 cycles of 4 weekly CMF (cyclophosphamide, methotrexate and fluorouracil) in patients with breast cancer non-responsive to tamoxifen. Verify antiemetics taken or administer as prescribed. Second, the starting dose of cyclophosphamide is 50% to 75% lower in EPOCH than in CDE, with the initial dose in the EPOCH regimen adjusted based on baseline CD4 counts and subsequent doses based on the neutrophil nadir. The first four treatments are AC, and the next four are paclitaxel (T). This has the potential to cause damage to affected tissue. Patients were treated with nab-paclitaxel 100 mg/m2, doxorubicin 50 mg/m2, and cyclophosphamide 500 mg/m2 on day 1 and nab-paclitaxel 100 mg/m2 on day 8 in a 21-day cycle for 6 cycles total. Low Dose Continuous Cyclophosphamide vs Standard Doxorubicin in Advanced Sarcoma Elderly Patients - Full Text View. AC-T is a standard regimen for breast cancers that require treatment with chemotherapy. The damage stops the cells from dividing, which causes them to die. The following table lists the toxicities found in patients in the NSABP B-15 trial, Quality of life information was not collected by the above trial; however, a sub study (NSABP B23-QOL) specifically compares the differences in the quality of life between women receiving AC and CMF. The drip will go through a pump. IV cannula (IVC) or central venous access device (CVAD) is required to administer this treatment.
