A Randomized Phase III Trial of Adjuvant Therapy Comparing Doxorubicin Plus Cyclophosphamide Followed by Weekly Paclitaxel With or Without Carboplatin for Node-Positive or High-Risk Node-Negative Triple-Negative Invasive Breast Cancer
This randomized phase III trial studies how well doxorubicin hydrochloride and
cyclophosphamide followed by paclitaxel with or without carboplatin work in treating
patients with triple-negative breast cancer. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as doxorubicin
hydrochloride, cyclophosphamide, paclitaxel, and carboplatin, work in different ways to stop
the growth of tumour cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or
by stopping them from spreading. It is not yet known whether doxorubicin hydrochloride and
cyclophosphamide is more effective when followed by paclitaxel alone or paclitaxel and
carboplatin in treating triple-negative breast cancer.
