The treatments were otherwise identical, including the intensification therapy, the concomitant hormonal therapy for ER-positive or -unknown patients, etc. With standard FAC we stopped adriamycin at 450 mg/m 2 , going on to CMF.

Although generally employed on a standard intermittent bolus schedule, preclinical studies in L1210 leukemia has demonstrated marked schedule dependency for this agent (10), supporting a rationale for continuous infusion. In addition, pharmacokinetic studies have demonstrated a relatively short plasma half-life of approximately one hour (T one-half alpha) and five hours (T one-half beta) (11). Clinical trials employing a variety of schedules with bolus delivery in small cell carcinoma indicate a higher response rate with a consecutive or every other day regimen compared to a weekly regimen (12).
