The therapeutic efficacy of the combination of epirubicin + dibromodulcitol was evaluated in 108 previously treated or untreated patients with advanced breast cancer. The overall response rate was 39.8%, complete remission 3.7% (mean duration 6.3 months) and partial remission 36.1% (mean duration 3.5 months). The response was rated in function of age, menopausal status, performance status and previous therapy. Toxicity (in case of 115 patients) was evaluated according to the WHO recommendation. The similar therapeutic effectiveness and less toxicity of the above drug combination compared to ADM + DBD regimen are demonstrated.
