Vinorelbine and Gemcitabine Versus Capecitabine in Pretreated Metastatic Breast Cancer

2014-08-27 03:40:19 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The combination of vinorelbine and gemcitabine seems to be an important part of the chemotherapy regimens used in metastatic breast cancer patients following treatment failure with the combination of a taxane and an anthracycline. Capecitabine rescue monotherapy in metastatic breast cancer patients following treatment failure with the combination of a taxane and an anthracycline, also seems to be an important part of the chemotherapy regimens used in metastatic breast cancer patients. Whether the combination of vinorelbine and gemcitabine or capecitabine administration is preferable is not yet known, especially in patients with metastatic disease.

Description

This trial will compare the efficacy of combination treatment with Vinorelbine and Gemcitabine versus Capecitabine monotherapy in metastatic breast cancer patients following treatment failure with the combination of a taxane and an anthracycline.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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

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.

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)

Carbohydrate antigen elevated in patients with tumors of the breast, ovary, lung, and prostate as well as other disorders. The mucin is expressed normally by most glandular epithelia but shows particularly increased expression in the breast at lactation and in malignancy. It is thus an established serum marker for breast cancer.
