What Is Dose-Intense Chemotherapy for Breast Cancer?

Question: What is dose-intense chemotherapy for breast cancer?

Answer: Dose-intense chemotherapy is a more general expression, because what it means is not only high doses of chemotherapy but perhaps multiple smaller doses of chemotherapy given very quickly. The whole concept is that either at a single point in time or over a relatively short time period that more drug, or more drugs, are delivered to patients than using standard techniques. The goal, again, is to try to kill more cancer.
