This is a retrospective, observational study that will document the treatment patterns and clinical outcomes of patients diagnosed with HR+/HER2- A/MBC who received CDK4/6i combination therapy with aromatase inhibitors (AI) as the initial endocrine-based therapy in the A/MBC setting.
This two-part study is composed of two stages: a Phase Ib stage consisting of a dose-escalation phase and an expansion phase; and a Phase II, randomized, placebo-controlled, double-blind, multicenter stage. The Phase Ib stage will assess the safety and tolerability, determine the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) and the recommended Phase II dose (RP2D), and evaluate the preliminary efficacy of trastuzumab emtansine in combination with venetoclax in participants with previously treated human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2) positive unresectable locally advanced breast cancer (LABC) or metastatic breast cancer (MBC). Additional patients may be enrolled in an expansion phase to evaluate the safety, tolerability, and efficacy of trastuzumab emtansine in combination with venetoclax at RP2D in patients with previously treated HER2-positive LABC or MBC who have previously received either trastuzumab emtansine or trastuzumab deruxtecan (DS-8201a). The Phase II randomized stage will evaluate the safety, efficacy, tolerability, and pharmacokinetics of trastuzumab emtansine in combination with venetoclax at RP2D compared with trastuzumab emtansine plus placebo in participants with previously treated HER2-positive LABC or MBC who have not received prior trastuzumab emtansine therapy, either alone or in combination with other anti-cancer therapies.
Background: Breast cancer is the second most common cause of United States (U.S.) cancer deaths in women. Immunotherapy drugs use a person's immune system to fight cancer. Researchers want to see if a new combination of immunotherapy drugs can help treat breast cancer that has gone to places in the body outside of the breast (metastasized). Objective: To learn if a new combination of immunotherapy drugs can shrink tumors in people with metastatic breast cancer. Eligibility: Adults 18 and older who have been diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer, such as Triple Negative Breast Cancer (TNBC) or estrogen receptors (ER)-/progesterone receptors (PR)-/human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2)+ Breast Cancer (HER2+BC) Design: Participants will be screened with: medical history physical exam disease confirmation (or tumor biopsy) tumor scans (computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, and/or bone scan) blood and urine tests electrocardiogram (measures the hearts electrical activity) echocardiogram (creates images of the heart). Participants will be assigned to 1 of 3 groups. The drugs they get will be based on the group they are in. Drugs are given in cycles. Each cycle = 3 weeks. Participants will be seen in clinic every 3 weeks, prior to the start of a new cycle. At each visit, participants will have an clinical exam, have blood drawn and will be asked about any side effects. They will repeat the screening tests during the study. New scans, like a computed tomography (CT) scan, will be done every 6 weeks to see if the treatment is working. All participants will get Bavarian Nordic (BN)-Brachyury. It is 2 different vaccines - a prime and a boost. First the priming vaccines, called MVA-BN-Brachyury help to jump start the immune system. Next the boosting vaccines, called fowlpox virus (FPV)-Brachyury help to keep the immune system going. They are injected under the skin during different cycles. All participants will get M7824 (also known as Bintrafusp alfa), which is an immunotherapy drug. Some participants will get a commonly used drug is HER2+ breast cancer called adotrastuzumab emtansine (also known as T-DM1DM1 or kadcyla). For both, a needle is inserted into a vein to give the drugs slowly. Some participants will take Entinostat weekly by mouth. It is in tablet form. Participants will keep a pill diary. Participants will continue on their assigned treatment until their cancer grows, they develop side effects or want to stop treatment. About 28 days after treatment ends, participants will have a follow-up visit or a telephone call. Then they will be contacted every 3 months for 1 year, then every 6 months for 1 year. They may have more tumor scans or continue treatment.
Endocrine therapy is the initial treatment for most hormone receptor positive (HR+), human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 negative (HER2-) breast cancers. This study will evaluate the use of venetoclax in combination with capecitabine in adult participants with HR+, HER2-, metastatic breast cancer (MBC) who had disease progression following treatment that included a cyclin-dependent kinase 4/6 (CDK4/6) inhibitor. Venetoclax is an investigational drug being developed for the treatment of breast cancer. This study is open-label meaning both the participants and study doctors will know what treatment is being given. The study includes two phases: dose escalation and dose expansion. In dose escalation, participants will receive various doses of venetoclax in combination with capecitabine. In dose expansion, participants will receive the recommended dose of venetoclax determined during dose escalation in combination with capecitabine. Adult participants with locally advanced or MBC that is not amenable to curative therapy will be enrolled. Around 42 participants will be enrolled at approximately 20 sites worldwide. Venetoclax and capecitabine will be administered on a 21-day cycle. During dose escalation, participants will take various doses of venetoclax as a tablet by mouth once a day and capecitabine as a tablet by mouth twice per day on days 1 - 14 of each cycle for approximately 30 weeks. During dose expansion, participants will take venetoclax at the dose identified during dose escalation as a tablet by mouth once a day and capecitabine as a tablet by mouth twice per day on days 1 - 14 of each cycle for approximately 30 weeks. There may be a higher burden for participants in this trial compared to standard of care. Participants will attend weekly visits during the course of the study at a hospital or clinic. The effect of the treatment will be checked by medical assessments, blood tests, and evaluating for side effects.
Primary Objective: To determine whether amcenestrant given at 2 different doses improves the antiproliferative activity when compared to letrozole Secondary Objectives: - To assess the proportion of participants with a relative decrease from baseline in percentage of positive tumor cells tested by immunohistochemistry ≥50% (Ki67≥50%) in the three treatment arms - To assess estrogen receptor (ER) degradation in biopsies in participants in the three treatment arms - To assess safety in the three treatment arms
Purpose: To assess the utility of combined, simultaneous positron emission tomography (PET) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), collectively called PET-MR, in assessing response to neoadjuvant chemotherapy and surgical treatment decisions for operable breast cancers. Participants: Adult patients with operable breast cancer that are being treated at UNC with neoadjuvant chemotherapy followed by potentially curative surgical resection. Procedures (methods): Patients who are being treated with neoadjuvant chemotherapy followed by surgical resection and for whom pre- and post-treatment MR imaging is part of planned treatment will undergo additional pre-treatment and post-treatment PET/MR. The response to treatment will be assessed at post-treatment by evaluating change in tumor size from MRI, change in response to dynamic contrast enhanced (DCE) MRI, and 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose (18F-FDG) avidity from PET. Patients will then undergo surgery. Their pathology will be reviewed for treatment effect as assessed by residual cancer burden (RCB) score. Patients will be followed and assessed for recurrence.
the aim of this study is to verify whether manual therapy associated with kinesiotherapy is more effective than kinesiotherapy alone in the treatment of chronic pain and upper limb dysfunction in women surviving cancer of mama. It is a randomized controlled double blind clinical trial (evaluator and patient), parallel in two groups (Intervention Group and Sham Group). The intervention will last 6 weeks and chronic pain and upper limb functionality will be evaluated. Both groups will undergo a kinesiotherapy program once a week for 6 consecutive weeks. Also, participants in the intervention group will receive, once a week, a manual therapy protocol, while participants in the Sham group will receive traditional massage. Manual therapy associated with kinesiotherapy is expected to yield superior results to the isolated kinesiotherapy in chronic pain and upper limb functionality.
A randomized multi-arm study evaluating the safety and efficacy of palbociclib and anastrozole with or without nivolumab in participants with ER+/HER2- breast cancer
The objective of the study is to demonstrate equivalency in treatment effect, as determined by objective measurements, between the modified therapy cycle software and the FDA-cleared Flexitouch therapy cycle software.
This pilot study aims to evaluate the feasibility to conduct a study of acupuncture treatment (AT) for Chemotherapy-Induced Peripheral Neuropathy (CIPN) at Huntsman Cancer Institute and to investigate changes in physiological biomarkers when using acupuncture to treat CIPN.
