Abstract

14 male patients with metastatic breast cancer received a total of 20 chemotherapeutic trials with 2 basic combination regimens, namely, variants of the Cooper's regimen CMFVP and adriamycin-containing combinations. Overall, a 35% response rate was observed. Our data suggest that cancer of the breast in the male is responsive to the same combinations used in the female, with regimens including adriamycin being probably superior to regimens without it.
