Study Design
Endpoint Classification: Pharmacokinetics Study, Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Treatment
Name: Epirubicin
Type: Drug
Overall Status
Epirubicin is a common chemotherapy medication used in the treatment of breast cancer. However, chemotherapy dosing is calculated based on people's height and weight, which may not be the most accurate way. The purpose of this study is to see if epirubicin dosing based on people's genetic profiles is better than the usual methods.
