The purpose of this study is to evaluate and compare the clinical benefit and safety of treatment with enzalutamide in combination with paclitaxel chemotherapy or as monotherapy versus placebo with paclitaxel in patients with locally advanced or metastatic, diagnostic-positive, triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC).
This is a Phase III, randomised, assessor-blind, parallel group, multicentre trial. At least 180 adult subjects with high-risk Stage II or Stage III / IV breast cancer will be randomised (1:1) to receive either Eurofarma's pegfilgrastim (n = 90) or Neulastim (n = 90) in 8 to 10 sites in Brazil. Subjects will undergo a maximum of 4 cycles of myelosuppressive chemotherapy (21 days per cycle).
The purpose of this study is to determine if an avatar-based depression self-management intervention (eSMART-MH) once a week for the duration of the participant's radiation treatment will significantly reduce depressive symptoms. Investigators also seek to explore how women with breast cancer describe their mood using prompted and unprompted speech through electronic social media and interviews. Participants will be randomized into the eSMART-MH group or the theater testing (attention control) group. In addition to the assigned interventions, participants will be asked to complete questionnaires and interviews with the study staff.
This is an open label, neoadjuvant phase II study to evaluate the objective response, toxicity, and safety of trastuzumab emtansine in patients with newly diagnosed HER2-equivocal breast cancer. Trastuzumab emtansine at a dose of 3.6 mg/kg will be intravenously administered every 3 weeks for a total of 6 weeks. Patients who achieve a partial or complete response after the 6-week treatment (responders) will continue on trastuzumab emtansine for an additional 12 weeks.
The primary purpose of this research study is to see whether adding bavituximab (an investigational drug) to the standard chemotherapy drug taxane, will improve the results of the treatment for early- stage Triple Negative Breast Cancer followed by Standard- of- Care surgery
The primary purpose of this study is to evaluate changes in shoulder tightness, chest tightness, and general pain related to post-mastectomy reconstructive surgery with tissue expansion in women who are randomized to receive acupuncture treatment immediately after surgery (twice a week for 6 weeks) compared to those who are randomized to no acupuncture treatment for 6 weeks, but offered acupuncture at the end of the 6 week study period.
Based on preclinical data implicating GR, AR, and JAK/STAT activation as potent mechanisms of breast cancer cell survival despite chemotherapy administration (i.e. chemotherapy resistance), the study will test a novel approach for improving chemotherapy effectiveness by adding Hsp90 inhibition to antagonize the anti-apoptotic signaling pathways that are initiated via GR, AR, and JAK/STAT activation.
A novel hand held hybrid optical-gamma camera (hereinafter referred to as the "camera") has been developed and can be used to image radiotracer distribution at the patient bedside. This study aims to evaluate the imaging capabilities of the camera in patients attending surgery for sentinel lymph node biopsy (SLNB) procedure. It is anticipated that this could improve the accuracy and simplify sentinel lymph node detection by providing fused optical and gamma imaging.
Eligible patients will be female, ages 18 and older and have a diagnosis of Clinical T1 or T2 invasive breast cancer with no suspicious palpable adenopathy. Patients will undergo standard of care lumpectomy without sentinel node biopsy and whole breast radiation, followed by chemotherapy. Sentinel node biopsy is also considered standard care when patients have localized breast cancer. Treatment can often be influenced by whether the results of the biopsy show cancer or not. However, the biologic factors of the primary tumor have become more important in determining treatment recommendations in women with clinically node negative breast cancer.
This is a phase I multi-center dose escalation study of the histone deacetylase inhibitor (HDACi) HBI-8000 when given in combination with paclitaxel and trastuzumab in women with advanced or metastatic HER2+ breast cancer.
