What is the standard treatment of taxotere/cytoxan chemo for idc with an oncotype score of 37? My oncologist wants me to do 6 cycles but 4 is normal.

In brief: 4 is standard

There is an ongoing trial of 4 vs 6.
My suspicion is there will be no difference, however, until the data is out 4 is the standard. Hope this helps.

If lymph nodes are negative, 4 cycles are adequate at this time of TC regimen. A high oncotype score does not mean 6 cycles be given.
