  5. Her2/neu negative tumor demonstrated by immunohistochemistry (IHC 0 or 1+) or by fluorescence in situ hybridation (FISH -). A patient with tumor assessed as 2+ by IHC can be enrolled if the tumor is negative by FISH.
  6. ECOG performance status of 0 to 2

An ECG must be obtained within 4 weeks prior study entry and must demonstrate no clinically significant abnormality.
  8. Patients are required to have at least one measurable lesion according to RECIST guidelines

  10. Negative pregnancy test (urine or serum) within 7 days prior to registration for all women of childbearing potential
  11. Written informed consent prior to beginning specific protocol procedures must be obtained and documented according to the local regulatory requirements

Exclusion Criteria

  1. Prior therapy for advanced or recurrent disease
  2. Previous cumulative exposure to epirubicin > 600 mg/m² or to doxorubicin > 300 mg/m²
  3. Previous radiation therapy having involved more than 25% of bone marrow; incomplete recovery from toxicity of radiation therapy
  4. Symptomatic brain metastases and clinically diagnosed leptomeningeal metastases
  5. Isolated unmeasurable bone lesions, serous pleural effusion or pulmonary lymphangiitis (i.e., unmeasurable disease according to the RECIST guidelines)

    3. Active uncontrolled infection
    4. Active peptic ulcer, uncontrolled diabetes mellitus
  9. Past or current history of neoplasm other than breast carcinoma, except:

  14. Concurrent treatment with any other anti-cancer therapy, except adjuvant hormone therapy started > than or = to 12 months prior to study enrollment. Bisphosphonates for management of bone metastases or osteoporosis/osteopenia are allowed
  15. History of hypersensitivity to docetaxel (or drugs formulated in polysorbate 80), epirubicin or doxorubicin
  16. Mental condition rendering the subject unable to understand the nature, scope, and possible consequences of the study
  17. Subject unlikely to comply with protocol, e.g., uncooperative attitude, inability to return for follow-up visits, and unlikelihood of completing the study
