Condition breast cancer
Treatment doxorubicin-hpma conjugate
Phase phase 2
Sponsor University of Glasgow
Start date December 1997
Trial size 25 participants
Trial identifier NCT00003165, CDR0000065966, CRC-PHASE-II-PH2/038, EU-97028


RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die. Giving drugs in different forms may kill more tumor cells.

PURPOSE: Phase II trial to study the effectiveness of doxorubicin in treating women with advanced metastatic breast cancer.
