Ellence (el-LENCE, epirubicin)

Pharmacia & Upjohn will market Ellence (el-LENCE, epirubicin)...for chemotherapy after surgery for early breast cancer.

Ellence is similar to doxorubicin (Adriamycin). In fact, they're the same molecule...just in different configurations.

At equal doses, the two drugs have similar efficacy...but Ellence causes less nausea, neutropenia, and cardiotoxicity.
