Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Number of Participants Who Received Concomitant Treatment Strategies to Manage Palmar-Plantar Erythrodysesthesia (PPE) [ Time Frame: Participants will do a single visit, but cases will be collected during a period of 12 months. ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

    Participants treated with Caelyx who developed PPE and the categories of specific treatment strategies that were prescribed to manage the symptoms of PPE.

    Participants counted under the strategies: Keep Skin Hydrated; Avoid Sweating and Physical Activity; Avoid Tight-Fitting Clothing; Local Cooling of Hands and Feet; were those who either always or sometimes followed it.

  • Number of Participants That Received Curative Treatment and/or Prophylaxis Treatment for PPE [ Time Frame: Participants will do a single visit, but cases will be collected during a period of 12 months. ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    The number of participants who were treated with Caelyx, and who received either prophylactic treatment alone, or curative treatment alone, or both prophylactic and curative treatment for PPE.
