NSABP Clinical Trials Overview

Protocol B-16
A Three-Arm Clinical Trial Comparing Tamoxifen Alone with L-PAM, 5-FU, Adriamycin and Tamoxifen or with Short, Intensive Adriamycin-Cyclophosphamide and Tamoxifen in Positive-Node Patients Having the Following Age and Receptor Criteria:
50-59 Years - PR = 10 fmol or more, regardless of ER
60-70 Years - All Patients

Specific Aims
To determine, in patients with histologically positive axillary nodes who are classified as tamoxifen-responsive, whether tamoxifen alone is as effective as (1) PAF + tamoxifen, or (2) short-course, intensive chemotherapy with AC + tamoxifen, with respect to disease-free survival and survival. The efficacy of ACT relative to PAFT will also be evaluated.
