From: Co-administration of dexamethasone increases severity and accelerates onset day of neutropenia in bladder cancer patients on methotrexate, vinblastine, adriamycin and cisplatin chemotherapy: a retrospective cohort study

Neutropenia Dex (−) (n = 6) Dex 1 day (n = 12) Dex multiday (n = 6)
G3 (%) 50.0 41.7 0
P value   1.0 0.18
G4 (%) 0 50.0 100.0
P value   0.054 0.002
G3/4 (%) 50.0 91.7 100.0
P value   0.08 0.18
  1. P values are for G3, G4 and G3/4 neutropenia with Dex (1 day or multiday) versus DEX (−), as determined by Fisher’s exact test
