Summary
Brief summary
This study is evaluating the effect of neoadjuvant chemotherapy with docetaxel and anthracycline in patients with advanced breast cancer. Who is it for? You may be eligible to join this study if you are a female aged 18 years or above who has a diagnosis of locally advanced breast cancer. Study details Participants in this study will be randomly (by chance) allocated to one of two groups. Participants in one group will undergo 4 cycles of chemotherapy with docetaxel followed by 4 cycles of chemotherapy with anthracycline. Participants in the other group will receive the same treatments in reverse order. The overall duration of treatment in each group is 24 weeks. All participants will be monitored for up to 5 years in order to evaluate clinical response and to identify markers that correlate with tumour response to chemotherapy. Assessments required include clinical examinations, mammogram, PET scan, MRI scan, blood tests and biopsy. We believe this study may help us in individualising cancer treatment.
