37 patients with advanced breast cancer resistant to anthracyclines were treated with paclitaxel 200 mg/m2 by 3-h infusion and carboplatin at an area under the curve of 7 mg · min/ml every 4 weeks with G-CSF support. There were 5 (14%, 95% CI 3-25%) complete and 11 (30%, 95% CI 15-45%) partial responders. Median duration of response was 11.5 months (range 5.2-16.8+), median time to progression 8 months (range 0.26-16.8+) and median survival 12 months (range 0.5-19.6+). Grade 3-4 leucopenia (27%), thrombocytopenia (10%) and diarrhoea (5%) were noted. In conclusion, the combination of paclitaxel and carboplatin is active and well tolerated in patients with advanced breast cancer resistant to anthracyclines.
