    It has been reported that a docetaxel-carboplatin combination as first-line chemotherapy for ovarian cancer showed a level of progression-free survival similar to that of paclitaxel-carboplatin while reducing neurotoxicity and improving quality of life. We investigated the recommended doses of...
