Study to Assess Effectiveness of Giving Combination of Standard Chemotherapy Drugs Versus Combination of Standard Chemotherapy and New Drug Ixabepilone When Given Before Surgical Removal of Early Stage Breast Cancer

2014-08-27 03:39:18 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The study will evaluate the effectiveness of ixabepilone when given after doxorubicin plus cyclophosphamide compared to standard treatment of paclitaxel given after doxorubicin plus cyclophosphamide in patients with early stage breast cancer. In addition the study will verify predefined biomarkers as well as discover new biomarkers that could identify patients who are more likely to respond to ixabepilone than standard paclitaxel based therapy

Ixabepilone and Cyclophophamide as Neoadjuvant Therapy in HER-2 Negative Breast Cancer

We propose to evaluate ixabepilone in combination with cyclophosphamide for the neoadjuvant treatment of locally advanced breast cancer. In this regimen, ixabepilone is substituted for doc...

Cyclophosphamide and Doxorubicin or Paclitaxel in Treating Women With Breast Cancer

RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin, and paclitaxel, work in different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die. Combinin...

Neoadjuvant Carbo/Paclitaxel Followed by Doxorubicin/Cyclophosphamide in Breast Cancer

This is a phase II single-arm, open-label, prospective study to evaluate the efficacy of the low dose weekly Carboplatin/Paclitaxel followed by dose-dense Doxorubicin/Cyclophosphamide in s...

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-neg...

Paclitaxel, Doxorubicin, and Cyclophosphamide With Or Without Carboplatin in Treating Women With Locally Advanced Breast Cancer That Can Be Removed by Surgery

RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as paclitaxel, doxorubicin, cyclophosphamide, and carboplatin, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the c...

Low doses of Paclitaxel repress breast cancer invasion through DJ-1/KLF17 signaling pathway.

Paclitaxel (taxol) is an important agent against many tumors, including breast cancer. Ample data documents that paclitaxel inhibits breast cancer metastasis while others prove that paclitaxel enhance...

Overexpression of ABCB4 contributes to acquired doxorubicin resistance in breast cancer cells in vitro.

Doxorubicin is one of the most active agents in the first-line therapy for metastatic breast cancer, but its utility is partially limited by the frequent emergence of doxorubicin resistance. In this s...

Impact of homologous recombination deficiency biomarkers on outcomes in patients with triple-negative breast cancer treated with doxorubicin-based adjuvant chemotherapy (SWOG S9313).

Homologous recombination deficiency (HRD) causing alterations have been reported in triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC). We hypothesized that TNBCs with HRD alterations might be more sensitive to ant...

Triptolide sensitizes breast cancer cells to Doxorubicin through the DNA damage response inhibition.

Triptolide is an active component from a Chinese herb, Tripterygium wilfordii which has been applied for treating immune-related diseases over centuries. Recently, it was reported that a variety of ca...

MicroRNA-574 enhances doxorubicin resistance through down-regulating SMAD4 in breast cancer cells.

Drug resistance has become an important factor that threatens the survival and prognosis of patients with breast cancer, especially in patients with advanced breast cancer. Several microRNAs have been...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Abnormal accumulation of lymph in the arm, shoulder and breast area associated with surgical or radiation breast cancer treatments (e.g., MASTECTOMY).

Metastatic breast cancer characterized by EDEMA and ERYTHEMA of the affected breast due to LYMPHATIC METASTASIS and eventual obstruction of LYMPHATIC VESSELS by the cancer cells.

Precursor of an alkylating nitrogen mustard antineoplastic and immunosuppressive agent that must be activated in the LIVER to form the active aldophosphamide. It has been used in the treatment of LYMPHOMA and LEUKEMIA. Its side effect, ALOPECIA, has been used for defleecing sheep. Cyclophosphamide may also cause sterility, birth defects, mutations, and cancer.

A infiltrating (invasive) breast cancer, relatively uncommon, accounting for only 5%-10% of breast tumors in most series. It is often an area of ill-defined thickening in the breast, in contrast to the dominant lump characteristic of ductal carcinoma. It is typically composed of small cells in a linear arrangement with a tendency to grow around ducts and lobules. There is likelihood of axillary nodal involvement with metastasis to meningeal and serosal surfaces. (DeVita Jr et al., Cancer: Principles & Practice of Oncology, 3d ed, p1205)

A deoxycytidine derivative and fluorouracil PRODRUG that is used as an ANTINEOPLASTIC ANTIMETABOLITE in the treatment of COLON CANCER; BREAST CANCER and GASTRIC CANCER.
