Addition Of Epirubicin To Tamoxifen Reduces Recurrence Of Node-

Positive Breast Cancer



WESTPORT, Jul 16 (Reuters Health) - Adding six cycles of

epirubicin to long-term tamoxifen therapy helps prevent relapse

in postmenopausal women with node-positive breast cancer, but it

does not appear to improve overall survival, according to

findings published by the International Collaborative Cancer

Group.  During a median 5.7 years of follow-up, the combination

regimen reduced the risk of breast cancer recurrence by nearly

28% compared with tamoxifen therapy alone, Dr.  J. M. Bliss, of

Charing Cross Hospital in London, UK, and multinational

investigators report in the July issue of the Journal of Clinical

Oncology.
