Abstract

ACR-CH, which consists of aclarubicin (ACR) adsorbed onto activated carbon particles, was developed for locoregional chemotherapy for breast cancer. Thirty patients with breast cancer received an ACR (10 mg) injection intra- and peritumorally, either as ACR-CH or as ACR aqueous solution (ACR-AQ) 5 min before the operation for breast cancer. The ACR concentrations were significantly higher in the peritumoral regions and regional lymph nodes, and were also significantly lower in the blood plasma in patients given ACR-CH versus patients given ACR-AQ
