Study of the Effects of Carboplatin Used with Usual Chemotherapy Drugs for Breast Cancer

What we are studying

The purpose of this study is to compare the good and bad effects of the chemotherapy drug, carboplatin, given with the usual chemotherapy drugs after surgery, compared to the usual chemotherapy drugs given without carboplatin. The addition of carboplatin to the usual chemotherapy could prevent your cancer from returning, but it could also cause side effects.
