The dominant drug type used for neoadjuvant and adjuvant chemotherapy include: • Anthracyclines like epirubicin and doxorubicin • 5-fluorouracil • Taxanes like docetaxel and paclitaxel • Carboplatin • Cyclophosphamide In many cases, combinations of two or even three of these drugs tend to be the standard. For advanced breast cancer victims, however, the chemotherapy drugs are: • Platinum agents • Gemcitabine • Vinorelbine • Taxanes like docetaxel, paclitaxel, and albumin-bound paclitaxel • Anthracyclines • Capecitabine • Eribulin • Ixabepilone
