[1] Number of participants with different types of tumor such as; ductal carcinoma, lobular carcinoma, invasive ductal carcinoma, invasive lobular carcinoma, papillary carcinoma, medullary carcinoma, mucinous (colloid) carcinoma and others.
[2] Number of participants who had undergone different type of surgeries which included mammectomy, radical resection, radical mastectomy, mastectomy, mammectomy with lymphadenectomy, ovariectomy, mammectomy with lymph node dissection, mastectomy type madden of mammary gland.
[3] Data for this pre-specified outcome measure was collected and reported in individual participant listings but not statistically summarized for analysis.
[4] Number of participants with positive or negative estrogen and progesterone receptors.
[5] TNM was based on size of tumor, if cancer cells had spread to nearby lymph nodes (LN), or distant (to other parts of the body) metastasis had occurred. Stages included: stage 0(no evidence of cancer cells), stage 1(T1N0M0), stage IIA(T0N1M0, T1N1M0, T2N0M0), stage IIB(T2N1M0, T3N0M0), stage IIIA(T0N2M0, T1N2M0, T2N3M0, T3N1orN2M0), stage IIIC(any TN3M0), stage IV(anyT anyNM1), where T0=early form of tumor, T1= <2 centimeter(cm), T2=2-5 cm, T3= >2 cm, T4=large sized tumor, N0=not spread to LN, N1=spread to 1 to 3,N2=spread to 4 to 9,N3=spread >10 axillary LN, M0=no metastasis, M1= Metastasis.
[6] The grade of a cancer depends on what the cells look like and the growth-rate. Lower grade indicates a slower-growing cancer and a higher grade indicates a faster-growing one. Grade 1 (resemble normal cells, not growing rapidly), grade 2 (grow faster than normal cells), grade 3 and 4 (abnormal cells, grow and spread aggressively).
[7] Number of participants who received chemotherapy. Chemotherapeutic drugs included cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin, 5-fluorouracil, paclitaxel, epirubicin, fluorouracil.
[8] Number of participants who received radiotherapy as measured in radiations per centigray (Rads/cGy).
[9] Participants who had a concomitant morbidity in the past; participants with more than one concomitant co-morbidity were counted for each of the co-morbidity classes applicable.

Certain Agreements:  
Principal Investigators are NOT employed by the organization sponsoring the study.
There IS an agreement between Principal Investigators and the Sponsor (or its agents) that restricts the PI's rights to discuss or publish trial results after the trial is completed.
The agreement is:
unchecked The only disclosure restriction on the PI is that the sponsor can review results communications prior to public release and can embargo communications regarding trial results for a period that is less than or equal to 60 days. The sponsor cannot require changes to the communication and cannot extend the embargo.
unchecked The only disclosure restriction on the PI is that the sponsor can review results communications prior to public release and can embargo communications regarding trial results for a period that is more than 60 days but less than or equal to 180 days. The sponsor cannot require changes to the communication and cannot extend the embargo.


Limitations and Caveats
Limitations of the study, such as early termination leading to small numbers of participants analyzed and technical problems with measurement leading to unreliable or uninterpretable data
The study was prematurely discontinued, therefore not all data was analyzed and only one outcome measure timeframe was presented.
