NEW YORK, Dec. 9 /PRNewswire/ — STORY SUMMARY: Breast cancer is the third deadliest form of cancer in the United States. Each year, more than 200,000 women are diagnosed with breast cancer, and this year alone, almost 40,000 women are expected to die of the disease.
While early diagnosis leads to the best chance of survival, fortunately, for patients diagnosed with advanced breast cancer, there are now more treatment options available for the disease. One example is a pill form of chemotherapy called Xeloda. Taken together with another chemotherapy drug, Taxotere, Xeloda has proven effective in treating patients with metastatic breast cancer who’ve failed anthracycline-containing treatment.
For more information about Xeloda visit http://www.xeloda.com or call Roche at 1-800-526-6367.
