What Are The Drugs, Timetable And Possible Side Effects Expected With The AC/T Chemotherapy Protocol?

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

Answer: AC/T usually refers to the sequential application of four doses of doxorubicin and cylcophosphamide, followed later by four doses of either a taxane called paclitaxel, or Taxol -- or, less frequently -- docetaxel (or Taxotere). With this regimen, the same kinds of side effects can be anticipated, as seen with others. An important subtlety is that one version of AC/T, called 'dose-dense' therapy, uses specifically two-week dosing intervals, making it faster and more effective.

Next: Are chemotherapy treatments usually given in the hospital, doctor's office or at home?
