|Abstract:||Evaluate microtubule-associated variables as potential predictors of response and clinical outcome in patients with advanced breast cancer receiving single-agent docetaxel or doxorubicin chemotherapy. Expression of total alpha- or beta-tubulin, classes II to IV beta-tubulin isotypes, and tau protein was evaluated by immunohistochemistry on the primary breast cancer. Patients with "high" expression of class III beta-tubulin isotype had a higher probability of response to docetaxel than to doxorubicin treatment. This study suggests that the superiority of docetaxel over doxorubicin seems restricted to the subgroup of patients with "high" expression of class III beta-tubulin isotype.|
