Arm Intervention/treatment

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Occurrence of a febrile neutropenic episode defined as fever (>=38.5°C once or >=38°C twice within 12 hours interval) and neutropenia (ANC < 0.5 IU) [ Time Frame: At the beginning of 2nd chemotherapy cycle, no more than 30 days after randomization ]

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Need for unplanned hospitalization [ Time Frame: At the beginning of second chemotherapy cycle, no more than 30 days after randomization ]
    Unplanned hospitalization is defined as the need to admit a patient outside of the schedule that was planned for chemotherapy administration

  2. Complicated febrile neutropenic episode [ Time Frame: At the beginning of the second chemotherapy cycle, no more than 30 days after randomization ]
    A complicated febrile neutropenic episode is defined as a febrile neutropenic episode (see above) that does not resolve without the occurrence of serious medical complication as defined in Klasterky J et al; JCO 2000 : 3038-3051

  3. Mortality any cause [ Time Frame: 30 days from randomization ]
