What does CMF mean?
- Cyclophosphamide Methotrexate Fluorouracil is a commonly used regimen of breast cancer chemotherapy that combines three anti-cancer agents: cyclophosphamide, methotrexate, and 5-fluorouracil. While it is no longer considered most efficient all-around chemotherapy it retains a great importance in the treatment of elderly patients with luminal cancers and may become important for the treatment of estrogen receptor negative androgen receptor positive luminal breast cancer. The regimen was designed in order to mimic the highly successful regimen developed to treat Hodgkin's lymphoma.
