The rates of severe chemotherapy-induced leukopenia (Grades III-IV) for the entire propensity-matched patients in different chemotherapy regimens. After matching, patients in group 2 had a higher rate of severe leukopenia compared to patients in group 1 (20% versus 6%, ; 5% versus 2%, ; 35% versus 28%, ; 11% versus 7%, , resp.). Chemotherapy. 1: the chemotherapy regimens contain AC/EC (Adriamycin or epirubicin, Cyclophosphamide) and CAF/CEF (Adriamycin or epirubicin, Cyclophosphamide, and 5-Fluorouracil). 2: the chemotherapy regimens contain TC (paclitaxel or docetaxel, Cyclophosphamide) and T (paclitaxel or docetaxel). 3: the chemotherapy regimens contain anthracyclines combined with paclitaxel or docetaxel: TAC/TEC (paclitaxel or docetaxel, Cyclophosphamide, and Adriamycin or epirubicin); TA/TE (paclitaxel or docetaxel, Adriamycin or epirubicin). 4: the chemotherapy regimens contain anthracyclines followed by paclitaxel or docetaxel: AC/EC (Adriamycin or epirubicin, Cyclophosphamide); CAF/CEF (Adriamycin or epirubicin, Cyclophosphamide, and 5-Fluorouracil), followed with T or TH (paclitaxel or docetaxel, Herceptin).
