PURPOSE: This phase I trial is studying the side effects and best dose of a gene-modified virus that can make interleukin-12 in treating women with breast cancer that has spread to the liver.
- Study the toxicity of escalating doses of adenoviral vector expressing the human recombinant interleukin-12 gene, administered by percutaneous intratumoral injection, in women with liver metastasis secondary to breast cancer.
- Determine tumor responses produced by this regimen.
- Determine immune responses induced by this regimen.
OUTLINE: This is a dose-escalation study.
Patients receive adenovirus-mediated human interleukin-12 via percutaneous intratumoral needle puncture under ultrasound guidance on day 1.
Cohorts of 3-6 patients receive escalating doses of adenovirus-mediated human interleukin-12 until the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) is determined. The MTD is defined as the dose preceding that at which 2 of 6 patients experience dose-limiting toxicity.
After completion of study treatment, patients are followed periodically.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 36 patients will be accrued for this study.
Primary Purpose: Treatment

RATIONALE: Monoclonal antibodies such as trastuzumab can locate tumor cells and either kill them or deliver tumor-killing substances to them without harming normal cells. Interleukin-2 may...
RATIONALE: Interleukin-4 PE38KDEL cytotoxin may be able to deliver cancer-killing substances directly to solid tumor cells. PURPOSE: Phase I trial to study the effectiveness of intravenou...
Breast tumor interleukin-6 (IL-6) level increases with tumor grade, and elevated serum IL-6 correlates with poor survival in patients with breast cancer. Epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT) phenot...
Cell invasion is attributed to the synthesis and secretion of proteolytically active matrix-metalloproteinases (MMPs) by tumor cells to degrade extracellular matrix (ECM) and promote metastasis. The r...
Breast cancer remains the leading cause of mortality worldwide. Human papilloma virus 16 (HPV16) may serve a function in the pathogenesis and development of breast cancer. However, the detection rate ...

Breast cancer is the leading cause of cancer-related mortality in women worldwide. Trastuzumab (Herceptin) is an effective antibody drug for HER2 positive breast cancer; or acquired trastuzumab resis...
Abnormal accumulation of lymph in the arm, shoulder and breast area associated with surgical or radiation breast cancer treatments (e.g., MASTECTOMY).
Tumors or cancer of the human BREAST.
Tumors or cancer found specifically in one human BREAST, but not in both.
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 secretoglobin that is produced by the MAMMARY GLAND of HUMANS and may be involved in the binding of ANDROGENS and other STEROIDS. The expression of this protein in normal breast epithelium and in human breast cancer has made it an important histological marker.
Biological therapy involves the use of living organisms, substances derived from living organisms, or laboratory-produced versions of such substances to treat disease. Some biological therapies for cancer use vaccines or bacteria to stimulate the body&rs...
