This is a Phase II, multicenter trial of single-agent treatment with OSI 774 in patients with histologically confirmed, incurable, locally advanced or metastatic breast cancer. Patients must have measurable disease.

RATIONALE: Estrogen can cause the growth of breast cancer cells. Hormone therapy using letrozole or goserelin may fight breast cancer by lowering the amount of estrogen the body makes. OSI...
This phase II trial studies how well erlotinib hydrochloride and bevacizumab work in treating patients with stage IV breast cancer. Erlotinib hydrochloride may stop the growth of tumor cel...
RATIONALE: Erlotinib and everolimus may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Giving erlotinib together with everolimus may kill more tumor...
RATIONALE: Biological therapies such as erlotinib may interfere with the growth of tumor cells and slow the growth of the tumor. PURPOSE: Phase II trial to study the effectiveness of erlo...
RATIONALE: Some tumors need growth factors produced by the body's white blood cells to keep growing. Erlotinib may interfere with the growth factor and may stop the tumor from growing. PU...
Resistance to chemotherapy is a challenging problem for treatment of cancer patients and autophagy has been shown to mediate development of resistance. In this study we systematically screened a libra...
Erlotinib is used for treating non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Intestinal absorption of erlotinib is impaired under gastric pH elevation, therefore, co-administration of gastric acid suppressants ...
The development of skin rashes is the most common adverse event observed in cancer patients treated with epidermal growth factor receptor-tyrosine kinase inhibitors such as erlotinib. However, the pha...
Metaplastic breast cancer (MpBC) is a rare but aggressive type of breast cancer accounting for 0.25-1% of all diagnosed invasive breast cancers. Morphologically, it is characterized by differentiation...
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...
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...
