ABSTRACT
The article discusses combination chemotherapy regimens for the treatment of metastatic breast cancer. Combination drug therapy regimens include both cytotoxic and noncytotoxic agents including ixabepilone with capecitabine and lapatinib with capecitabine. Endocrine agents are the first-line treatment for patients with metastatic breast cancer involving tumors which express estrogen or progesterone receptors. The safety and efficacy of combination chemotherapy requires further study.
