This monograph examines the effectiveness of adjuvant chemotherapy in premenopausal women with breast cancer that has spread to the lymph nodes under the arm. The review focuses on the issue of how the survival of node-positive breast cancer patients has changed over time. It concludes that the survivability benefits from this treatment need further study since no visible improvement was indicated in the findings. (JD)
