DOI : 10.33371/ijoc.v13i1.569
Background: Breast cancer is the most diagnosed cancer among Indonesian women. Adjuvant chemotherapy plays a crucial role in the management of early breast cancer patients, with docetaxel-based regimens as a cornerstone therapy. The Asia-Pacific breast initiative II registry was established to evaluate safety parameters of docetaxel-based regimens in the Asia-Pacific region within 2009–2013 period. The result from Indonesia population is presented in this study.
Methods: This study was a part of International, longitudinal, multicenter, and observational research which included a group of consecutive early breast cancer patients with an intermediate-to-high risk of recurrence that was being treated with various docetaxel-based (anthracycline and non-anthracycline) adjuvant chemotherapy regimens during 2009–2013 in real-world clinical settings.
Results: The analysis included 49 subjects (2.8% of total study population). Majority of subjects received non-anthracycline-containing regimen (79.6%). Docetaxel was mainly prescribed in combination (63.27%). Chemotherapy-related adverse events were reported in all subjects. Mean number of cycles received by subjects was 5.5 cycles with dose intensity of 23.78 mg/m2/week.
Conclusions: The Indonesian result, as part of the Asia-Pacific Breast Initiative II Registry, identified some important factors that are relevant to clinical practice, including patient’s characteristics and treatment pattern of docetaxel use as adjuvant chemotherapy regimens.
