Xeloda® XeNA Study Analyses of Xeloda, Docetaxel and Herceptin Combination Therapy for Metastatic Breast Cancer Featured at Major New Breast Cancer Symposium


Roche announced today that three clinical data abstracts about its oral chemotherapy treatment Xeloda® have been accepted for presentation at the 2007 Breast Cancer Symposium in San Francisco, Sept. 7 and 8.

Two of the abstracts include data from the XeNA (Xeloda in NeoAdjuvant) trial, a study of Xeloda and docetaxel with or without Herceptin in patients with invasive breast cancer. The third presentation highlights findings that validate efficacy and cost benefits of Xeloda in breast cancer patients.

· Poster No. 100, [General Poster Session C, Sept. 8, 7:00 - 8:00 a.m.], “Distribution of p53 mutations by AmpliChip assay in patients receiving neoadjuvant capecitabine (C) plus docetaxel (D) with or without trastuzumab (T) for newly diagnosed breast cancer (BC).” (Presenter: Nancy Patten)
