Randomized Phase II Study of Dose-Dense Fluorouracil Plus Epirubicin 75 Plus Cyclophosphamide (FEC75) and Fluorouracil Plus Epirubicin 90 Plus Cyclophosphamide (FEC90) as Adjuvant Therapy for Early Breast Cancer
Arm A: the FEC75 regimen will be given at the following doses:
Fluorouracil 500mg/m2 by i.v. bolus or infusion. Epirubicin 75mg/m2 by 30 minutes i.v
infusion and Cyclophosphamide 500mg/m2 by i.v bolus or infusion. All three drugs will be
administered intravenously on Day 1 of each 14-day cycles.
Arm B: the FEC90 regimen will be given at the following doses:
Fluorouracil 500mg/m2 by i.v. bolus or infusion.Epirubicin 90mg/m2 by 30 minutes i.v
infusion and Cyclophosphamide 500mg/m2 by i.v bolus or infusion.
All three drugs will be administered intravenously on Day 1 of each 14-day cycles.
Pegfilgrastim fixed dose of 6mg as a single subcutaneous injection will be given in both
arms on Day 2 of each cycle.
Six cycles of adjuvant chemotherapy will be administered in both arms (A + B)
Allocation: Randomized, Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Treatment
The primary objective of this randomized phase II is to determine the relative dose intensity (RDI) of six adjuvant cycles of FEC75 and FEC90 regimens given every 14 days with pegfilgrastim (Neulasta) support in subjects with early breast cancer.
