Lapatinib and Tamoxifen in Treating Patients With Advanced or Metastatic Breast Cancer

2014-07-24 14:22:59 | BioPortfolio

Summary

RATIONALE: Lapatinib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Estrogen can cause the growth of breast cancer cells. Hormone therapy using tamoxifen may fight breast cancer by blocking the use of estrogen by the tumor cells. Giving lapatinib together with tamoxifen may be an effective treatment for breast cancer.

PURPOSE: This randomized phase I trial is studying the side effects of lapatinib and tamoxifen in treating patients with advanced or metastatic breast cancer.

Description

OBJECTIVES:

Primary

- Determine the pharmacokinetics of lapatinib ditosylate and tamoxifen citrate in patients with advanced or metastatic breast cancer.

Secondary

- Assess the safety of this regimen in these patients.

- Determine any relationship between drug exposure and adverse events or biological modifications of this regimen in these patients.

- Assess the antitumor activity of this regimen in patients with measurable disease.

OUTLINE: This is an open-label, randomized, multicenter study. Patients are randomized to 1 of 2 treatment arms.

- Arm I: Patients receive oral tamoxifen citrate on days 1-28 of course 1. In all subsequent courses, patients receive oral tamoxifen citrate and oral lapatinib ditosylate on days 1-28. Courses repeat every 28 days in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.

- Arm II: Patients receive oral lapatinib ditosylate on days 1-14 of course 1. In all subsequent courses, patients receive oral lapatinib ditosylate and oral tamoxifen citrate on days 1-28. Courses repeat every 28 days in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.

In both treatment arms, blood is collected periodically during courses 1 and 2 for pharmacokinetic studies.

After completion of study treatment, patients are followed periodically.

PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 20 patients will be accrued for this study.

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.

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.

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.
