Randomized Study Comparing CMF and Goserelin + Tamoxifen in Premenopausal Receptor-Positive Patients
A Randomized Phase III Study Comparing Cyclophosphamide + Methotrexate + Fluorouracil Vs. Goserelin + Tamoxifen in Premenopausal, Hormone Receptor-Positive, Lymph Node-Positive or -Negative Patients
Primarily, this clinical investigation compared the efficacy of cyclophosphamide + methotrexate + fluorouracil chemotherapy vs. goserelin + tamoxifen treatment in terms of prognosis (disease-free survival, overall survival) in premenopausal patients with potentially curative, operated hormone receptor-positive breast cancer.
