Clinical Trial Summary

This study will evaluate the efficacy, safety and effect on quality of life of liposomal-encapsulated doxorubicin in combination with cyclophosphamide as first or second line treatment of older patients (≥ 70 years old) with metastatic breast cancer. The efficacy of the combination will be correlated with the functional status of patients according to the comprehensive geriatric assessment

Clinical Trial Description

Elderly individuals make up a large part of the breast cancer population. When treated with chemotherapy for metastatic disease they derive similar benefits to their younger counterparts. Anthracyclines are associated with a cumulative dose-dependent cardiomyopathy with increased rate in patients over the age of 70. Liposomal-encapsulated doxorubicin improves the therapeutic index of doxorubicin by reducing significantly the cardiotoxicity and grade 4 neutropenia and provides comparable antitumor efficacy, when used in combination with cyclophosphamide as first-line therapy for metastatic breast cancer
