In the neoadjuvant setting, patients were administered gemcitabine (800 mg/m2 IV days 1 and 8), epirubicin (75 mg/m2 IV day 1), and docetaxel (30 mg/m2 IV days 1 and 8)repeated every 21 days for 4 cycles
Patients then had either mastectomy or breast conservation surgery and pathologic treatment responses were assessed.
After surgery, 4 cycles of adjuvant gemcitabine (1000 mg/m2 IV days 1 and 8) and docetaxel (35 mg/m2 IV days 1 and 8) were administered at 21 day intervals.
After completion of chemotherapy, local regional radiation therapy and/or anti-estrogen therapy was administered per standard guidelines.
