  Purpose

The main objective of this randomized trial is to compare 6 FEC100 to 4 FEC100 + 4 Taxol in patients with resected node positive breast cancer. Main endpoint is disease free survival. Secondary endpoints are overall survival, time to local recurrence, time to distant metastases, and tolerance. A total of 840 patients have been included in the trial.
