This research study is studying a drug called GDC-0084 as a possible treatment for HER2-Positive Breast Cancer. The drugs involved in this study are: - GDC-0084 - Trastuzumab (Herceptin®)
This study is designed to test the following hypothesis: patients undergoing immediate alloplastic and autologous breast reconstruction following mastectomy that receive preoperative immunonutrition and carbohydrate loading will experience a reduction in wound complications in the 30-day postoperative period compared to a standard of care control group (retrospective chart review) of 264 (132 alloplastic + 132 autologous) consecutive breast reconstruction patients prior to 5/25/2018.
In this innovative approach seeking effective therapeutic strategies, the investigators are proposing to test the effectiveness of medical cannabis oil as an adjunct to palliative Radiation Therapy (RT) and Best Supportive Care to alleviate cancer pain that was only partially relieved with conventional medications. Furthermore, the investigators will assess the effect of medical cannabis oil on health-related quality of life and symptoms that are frequently associated with metastatic cancers including fatigue, anxiety, depression, insomnia and decreased appetite. The safety profile of medical cannabis oil with respect to prolonged use of more than two weeks of administration, concomitant medication use and palliative RT will also be examined.
People treated for breast cancer often live with an ongoing fear that the cancer will recur. This fear may develop and impact on their mental health and quality of life. The Mini-AFTERc study is a pilot trial of a brief cognitive behavioural communication intervention, designed to reduce fear of cancer recurrence (FCR) in breast cancer patients. This pilot trial aims to determine the acceptability and practicality of introducing the Mini-AFTERc intervention into everyday practice, and inform the development of a full randomised controlled trial.
Background: A person s blood, tissue, and other samples contain DNA. Cancer is a disease of cells that are not working properly. It is caused by changes in DNA that build up. Researchers want to do future studies on DNA changes This may help them learn how to guide treatment for cancer. They need biological samples like tumors, blood, and urine for these studies. Objective: To create a place to collect and store biological samples from people with gynecologic malignancies like breast cancer. Samples from certain relatives of theirs will be collected too. Eligibility: Adults ages 18 and older who are being seen at NIH for breast cancer or other gynecologic malignancy Their biological relatives of the same age Design: Participants will answer questions about their family history. Participants will have a physical exam and medical history. This will include questions about age, ethnicity, and disease history. They will also answer questions about their medical treatments and responses. Participants will give blood and urine samples. Participants may give a tumor tissue sample. This will not be taken specifically for this study. It will be from a previous procedure or one that is already planned. Other samples may be taken only if a procedure is required for treatment. These include bone marrow, cerebrospinal fluid, and other fluids. A group of doctors and other professionals will oversee the sample storage place. The group will review all requests to be sure the use of the specimens is valid.
This study will look at effects the combination of palbociclib and dose-dense neoadjuvant chemotherapy may have on triple negative breast cancer tumours which have not yet been treated.
This is a randomized, double-blind multicenter Phase III study for evaluating the efficacy and safety of neoadjuvant pyrotinib and trastuzumab plus docetaxel and Carboplatin versus placebo and trastuzumab plus docetaxel and Carboplatin given as neoadjuvant treatment in HER2 positive early stage or locally advanced breast cancer.
Breast cancer is the second most frequent cancer worldwide. Principal therapy consists in radiotherapy, but this technic has sides effects as radiodermatitis, concerning about 90 percent of women treated. Risk of flushing could be reduced by hygienic rules, but no treatment proved its efficacy to prevent radiodermatitis. Homeopathy is popular but also contested. No clinical trial proved its efficacy for this indication. The present study aims at evaluating Radium bromatum efficacy (homeopathy), compared to placebo, to prevent radiodermatitis apparition for women treated for breast cancer.
In this phase I feasibility study, the investigators evaluate the combination of lyso-thermosensitive liposomal doxorubicin (LTLD, ThermoDox) with local hyperthermia and cyclophosphamide (C), for the local treatment of the primary breast tumour in patients with metastatic breast cancer. When heated to 40-43 degrees Celsius (ºC), LTLD releases a very high concentration of doxorubicin locally within seconds. Hyperthermia of the primary tumour will be induced by Magnetic Resonance guided High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (MR-HIFU) on a dedicated Sonalleve MR-HIFU breast system. The investigators hypothesize that by substituting doxorubicin (A) in the AC-chemotherapy regimen for the combination of LTLD and MR-HIFU induced hyperthermia, optimal local tumour control can be achieved without compromising systemic toxicity or efficacy. This will be the first study to evaluate LTLD with MR-HIFU hyperthermia in breast cancer patients.
This research study is evaluating a genomic analysis called Predictor Analysis of Microarray 50 (PAM50, by Prosigna®) as a tool to possibly guide the participant and the treating physician to choose the most personalized pre-operative treatment for breast cancer.
