Part of the Cancer Treatment and Research book series (CTAR, volume 76)


Carcinoma of the breast ends the life of nearly 50,000 women each year in the United States [1]. Refinements in surgery and radiation have improved cosmesis and local control but have failed to deal with the insidious systemic nature of this disease. Conventional dose adjuvant chemotherapy has also failed to impact national mortality figures [2]. At historically applied doses, adjuvant chemotherapy represents inadequate systemic therapy for a large proportion of patients.
