Breast: Metastatic Clinical Trials

  • Doxorubicin Hydrochloride and Cyclophosphamide Followed by Paclitaxel With or Without Carboplatin in Treating Patients With Triple-Negative Breast Cancer
  • This randomized phase III trial studies how well doxorubicin hydrochloride and cyclophosphamide followed by paclitaxel with or without carboplatin work in treating patients with triple-negative breast cancer. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as doxorubicin hydrochloride, cyclophosphamide, paclitaxel, and carboplatin, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. It is not yet known whether doxorubicin hydrochloride and cyclophosphamide is more effective when followed by paclitaxel alone or paclitaxel and carboplatin in treating triple-negative breast cancer.

  • A Study of Palbociclib in Combination With Fulvestrant or Tamoxifen as Treatment for Metastatic Breast Cancer
  • Approximately 70 patients with HR+ advanced breast cancer will be enrolled. All patients will receive either fulvestrant (500 mg IM every 2 weeks x 3 then every four weeks) or tamoxifen (20 mg PO daily by physician choice). Pre-menopausal women must be in chemical menopause. Arm 1 will receive palbociclib 100 mg qd, days 1-21 every 28 days. Arm 2 will receive palbociclib 125 mg qd, days 1-21 every 28 days. Restaging will be performed every 8 weeks. Therapy will be continued until PD or unacceptable toxicity. Patients will be randomly allocated in a 1:1 ratio to take either 100 mg or 125 mg of palbociclib. Randomized treatment assignments will be made by permuted blocks, generated by our collaborating statistician at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.

  • Avoiding Growth Factor During Paclitaxel Treatment in Breast Cancer
  • This research study is testing the safety and feasibility of delivering the 4 cycles of 'dose-dense' paclitaxel without the use of Neulasta (Pegfilgrastim) as a Granulocyte Colony-stimulating Factor (G-CSF) support. The research study is for participants who have early stage breast cancer and have been recommended to receive a standard chemotherapy regimen, doxorubicin/cyclophosphamide (AC) plus Paclitaxel (T), in what is called a "dose-dense" fashion to prevent recurrences.

  • ZK219477 (Sagopilone) in Patients With Breast Cancer and Brain Metastases
  • The purpose of this research study is to determine the effects (good and bad) of ZK219477(sagopilone) on participants and their cancer. ZK219477 is a chemotherapy drug that is thought to work by interfering with the ability of cancer cells to grow and divide. It is a part of a group of drugs called "epothilones" which appear to cause shrinkage of cancer in some patients with breast cancer. It is generally difficult for chemotherapy to enter the brain. However, it is believed that ZK219477 crosses into the brain. We are also studying whether an investigational MRI scan procedure may eventually help to predict which patients will benefit from ZK219477.

  • Palbociclib With Everolimus + Exemestane In BC
  • This research study is studying a combination of targeted therapy and hormonal therapy as a possible treatment for breast cancer that has spread to other places in the body and is hormone receptor positive (HR+) and HER2-negative. The names of the study interventions involved in this study are: - Palbociclib - Everolimus - Exemestane

  • Novel Social Media Intervention For Older Br CA Patients
  • The number of patients 60 and older with breast cancer is increasing as our population ages. Despite the fact that the majority of breast cancers occur in patients 60 and over, these patients are consistently under-represented in clinical trials. Because patients 60 and older are an under-studied group, investigators do not have detailed information on the side effects and experiences for these patients receiving chemotherapy. Understanding the side effects patients receiving chemotherapy experience is an important part of this study. In addition, past research has shown that having poor social support can affect quality of life, mood, and outcomes for people with cancer. However, few studies in the past have focused on improving the quality of life and support systems that patients have while they receive treatment. This research study is evaluating how engaging in an online support community may improve the experience of older patients receiving chemotherapy.

  • Study of SRN-927 in Postmenopausal Women With Locally Advanced or Metastatic Estrogen Receptor Positive Breast Cancer
  • This is an open-label, dose-finding study of SRN-927 administered orally on a continuous daily dosing regimen with a PK lead-in period (dose escalation period only). The incidence of dose limiting toxicity (DLT) will be evaluated from Day -7 through the first cycle (28 days) of treatment (35 days total). Depending on safety and tolerability, patients will be assigned sequentially to escalating doses of SRN-927 using standard 3+3 design. All patients will be treated until disease progression, unacceptable toxicity, or patient withdrawal of consent.
