Abstract

Gemcitabine or carboplatin-gemcitabine (CG) are commonly used in the treatment of advanced breast cancer. We retrospectively compared the efficacy and safety of these treatment regimens in a heterogeneous patient population. Despite a trend toward a higher rate of objective responses, CG was associated with more frequent adverse events and no evidence of better progression-free survival compared to single-agent gemcitabine.
