RATIONALE: VEGF Trap may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking blood flow to the tumor.
- Assess the antitumor activity of VEGF Trap, in terms of tumor response rate, in patients with metastatic breast cancer who have received ≤ 2 prior chemotherapy regimens for metastatic disease, including a taxane and/or anthracycline.
- Assess the 6-month progression-free survival rate in patients treated with VEGF Trap.
- Describe the adverse event profile (grade using the NCI CTCAE version 3.0) of VEGF Trap in these patients.
- Describe the progression-free survival times in patients treated with VEGF Trap.
- Describe the overall survival of patients treated with VEGF Trap.
- Describe the duration of response in patients treated with VEGF Trap.
OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study.
Patients receive VEGF Trap IV over 1 hour on day 1. Courses repeat every 14 days in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
After completion of study treatment, patients are followed every 3-6 months for up to 5 years.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 45 patients will be accrued for this study.

The primary objective of this study is to determine the dose of aflibercept to be further studied in combination with docetaxel in Japanese cancer patients. The secondary objectives of th...
The main purpose of this study is to evaluate if aflibercept can reduce the chance that metastatic (spread of) colorectal cancer can grow back after finishing standard treatment. The study...
The primary objective is to determine the dose of aflibercept to be further studied in combination with irinotecan/5-fluorouracil/isovorin (FOLFIRI) in Japanese patients with metastatic co...
This phase II trial studies how long it takes colorectal cancer resistant to standard treatment to grow while receiving treatment with ziv-aflibercept, and how well adding fluorouracil and...
This randomized phase II trial studies how well ziv-aflibercept works in treating patients with metastatic or unresectable kidney cancer. Ziv-aflibercept may stop the growth of kidney canc...
The accumulating evidence indicates that weight gain in adulthood is more predictive of breast cancer risk than absolute body weight. However, the relative impact of timing of weight gain in adulthood...
Gene expression profiling of breast cancer has demonstrated the importance of stromal response in determining the prognosis of invasive breast cancer. The host response to breast cancer is of increasi...
Phthalates, known endocrine disruptors, may play a role in breast carcinogenesis. Few studies have examined phthalates in relation to breast cancer (BC), and, to our knowledge, none have considered su...
Assessing trends in breast cancer survival among young women who are largely unaffected by breast cancer screening will provide important information regarding improvements in the effectiveness of can...
Early breast cancer follow-up guidelines for patients who underwent surgery suggest a regular and accurate clinical examination of the breast area, for an early identification of cutaneous or subcutan...
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.
In a clinical trial or interventional study, participants receive specific interventions according to the research plan or protocol created by the investigators. These interventions may be medical products, such as drugs or devices; procedures; or change...
