Question: What Are The Drugs, Timetable And Possible Side Effects Expected With The TC Chemotherapy Protocol?

Answer: Doxorubicin and cyclophosphamide -- frequently referred to as AC -- is one of the most widely used, standard, and oldest combination chemotherapy approaches. It is a fairly simple regimen consisting of both drugs -- doxorubicin and cyclphosphamide -- given once every two or three weeks historically, a total of four times. On that regimen, patients will typically lose their hair; they may have trouble with low blood counts and a suppression of their immunity; beyond that, there are many other toxicities that can be seen, to varying degrees.
