Dose-Dense Chemotherapy Plus Bevacizumab Followed by Nab-Paclitaxel Appears Cardiac Safe in Early-Stage Breast Cancer: Presented at SABCS

Abstract:
A dose-dense anthracycline-based therapy that includes bevacizumab followed by nanoparticle albumin-bound paclitaxel (nab-paclitaxel) appears to avoid serious cardiac toxicity in its role as adjuvant treatment for early-stage breast cancer, researchers reported at the 31st Annual San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium (SABCS).

Heather McArthur, MD, Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, New York, New York and colleagues enrolled 80 women with early-stage breast cancer into a trial in which patients were treated with bevacizumab 10 mg/kg administered intravenously every 2 weeks for 8 cycles, concurrently with doxorubicin 60 mg/m2 and cyclophosphamide 600 mg/m2 every 2 weeks for 4 cycles, and then nab-paclitaxel 260 mg/m2 every 2 weeks for 4 cycles. After 8 cycles, for the rest of 1 year, bevacizumab was administered at a dose of 15 mg/kg every 3 weeks. Pegfilgrastim was administered on day 2 of each chemotherapy cycle.
