    These are the three chemo
    These are the three chemo agents I received. Adriamycin, Cytoxin and Taxol. At least I believe that is what they stand for. If I'm wrong, someone please correct me!

    Be Well,

    Right
    ACT are the three most common drugs used to treat breast cancer. I am on a study out of Johns Hopkins, trying to determine if ACT versus CT are just as effective, eliminating the Adrymiacin. That is the strongest of the three drugs. I was in the group of 1000 who took all three drugs, and the study continues for another two years. So far they are finding that eliminating Adrymiacin does not change the percentage of recurrence, but the study continues. I will let you know when they publish the final results. Hugs, Judy

    A/C and T
    I had 4 rounds of A/C (Adriamycin/Cytoxan) spaced 2 weeks apart and 12 rounds of Taxotere once a week. My last infusion was in August 2010.
