PLEASE NOTE on CHART of DRUGS USED IN TREATMENT OF MBC:


* It does not include supportive medications to treat symptoms of the cancer or side effects of treatment.


* Some drugs are approved for use in other cancers and other diseases.


* Doctors may use drugs to treat metastatic breast cancer even though they are not FDA approved for this particular use. If there is high-quality research supporting the treatment, insurance and Medicare will usually reimburse. This is known as "off-label" use. Many treatments for MBC are used off-label.


*New research is constantly being presented at conferences or published in peer-reviewed oncology journals looking at whether these and other drugs, used singly or in combination, will benefit mbc patients.
