Abstract: Background/Aim: Gemcitabine/carboplatin is efficacious in breast cancer but results in significant hematologic toxicities. We employed a multi-gene approach to identify variants to predict its toxicities. Patients and Methods: Twenty-six gemcitabine and platinum-based DNA repair pathway polymorphisms were correlated with gemcitabine pharmacokinetics, hematologic toxicities, response and survival in 41 Asian breast cancer patients receiving gemcitabine/ carboplatin. Results: The combined effects of solute carrier family (SLC)28A1+1528C>T and thymidylate synthetase (TYMS)+1494del6 significantly influenced hematologic toxicities: 89% of patients who possessed either SLC28A1+1528TT or TYMS+1494ins6/ins6 (n=9) developed grade 4 thrombocytopenia, versus 14% with neither genotype (n=29; p
