Ninety-eight patients with multifocal metastatic breast carcinoma were treated with simultaneous combinations of thio-triethylenephosphoramide (TEPA) plus methotrexate (TP + MTX), cyclophosphamide (Cytoxan®) (Cyt) plus 5 fluorouracil (FU), TP + MTX + FU, or Cyt + MTX + FU. Maintenance alkylating agent (Alk) therapy (TP or Cyt) and intermittent courses of metabolic inhibitors (MTX or 5 FU) were given for 1 to 2 years. Central nervous system (CNS), hepatic, and diffuse preterminal disseminated metastases were also treated with moderate prednisone dosage. Hematostimulative supportive therapy included aqueous crystalline testosterone to masculinization, and monthly vitamin B12.
