This is on the plateau part of the dose-response curve where no benefit would be expected from relatively small increases in dose intensity. On the other hand, an increase in received dose intensity on the linear portion of the curve should improve outcome. This may explain why CMFYP was superior to CMF in patients with more than three positive nodes (Wood 1983). The size of the tumor burden also conditions the relationship between treatment outcome and dose intensity in other situations, e. , cisplatin therapy of testicular cancer (Samson et al.

However, these schedules and schemes have obscured dose-response relationships and have led to confusion. Dose-response relationships can be rediscovered and the confusion can be cleared by expressing all treatments in terms of how much drug is given per unit time. This is dose intensity (Green and Dawson 1980). Dose intensity may be calculated from intended drug doses ("projected dose intensity") or from doses received after reductions and delays because of toxicity ("received dose intenstiy") (Hryniuk and Bush 1984).
