Final eligibility for a clinical trial is determined by the health professionals conducting the trial.
Patients will be randomly assigned to receive one of three different doses of doxorubicin plus cyclophosphamide for 3 months. Within each of these groups, patients will be further randomized to receive either 3 additional months of chemotherapy with paclitaxel or no further treatment. Some patients from all groups will also receive tamoxifen by mouth once a day for 5 years. Patients will be evaluated every 3 months for 1 year, every 6 months for 2 years, and once a year thereafter.
