High dose chemotherapy and hematopoietic progenitor cell transplantation for breast cancer


, : High dose chemotherapy and hematopoietic progenitor cell transplantation for breast cancer. Journal of ChemoTherapy 16 Suppl 4: 108-111

Nowhere has there been more controversy in recent years than in the use of high dose chemotherapy (HDC) with autologous hematopoietic stem cell transplantation for breast cancer, both in the adjuvant setting and for advanced disease. Authors review and comment on the data from the studies so far reported and try to indicate what will be next in this field. They also discuss what may be the attitude to take in our everyday clinical practice, taking into account the availability of new chemotherapeutic agents and targeted therapies.
