  Description
Doxorubicin/Gemcitabine

Doxorubicin was given at 50 mg/m² by IV slow push, followed by gemcitabine 1500 mg/m² IV infusion over 30 minutes on day 1. Patients will receive G-CSF at a subcutaneous dose of 5mcg/kg/day on days 2 or 3 to 10 or neulasta at a dose of 6mg on day 2. Growth factor must be administered as close as possible to 24 hours after the completion of chemotherapy. It is recommended that neulasta be administered only on day 2 due to its prolonged half-life. Cycles were repeated every 2 weeks.

Only eligible and treated patients are included in the analysis.
