RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy work in different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die. Monoclonal antibodies, such as bevacizumab, can block cancer growth in different ways. Some block the ability of cancer cells to grow and spread. Others find cancer cells and help kill them or deliver cancer-killing substances to them. Combining chemotherapy with monoclonal antibody therapy may kill more tumor cells.
PURPOSE: This phase II trial is to see if combining bevacizumab with docetaxel works in treating women who have locally advanced or metastatic breast cancer.
- Determine the response rate in women with locally advanced or metastatic breast cancer treated with bevacizumab and docetaxel.
- Determine the side effects of this regimen in these patients.
- Correlate soluble activated endothelial cell markers and adhesion molecules, quantitation of tumor and/or endothelial cell apoptosis, and quantitation of microvessel density with clinical outcome in patients treated with this regimen.
OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study.
Patients receive bevacizumab IV over 30-90 minutes on weeks 1 and 3 and docetaxel IV over 60 minutes on weeks 1, 2, and 3. Treatment repeats every 4 weeks for up to 12 courses in the absence of unacceptable toxicity or disease progression. After completion of 6 courses of combined treatment, patients with an ongoing response may receive bevacizumab alone in the absence of disease progression.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 16-27 patients will be accrued for this study within 14-27 months.

Pilot, phase II, parallel-group, open-label, noncomparative, prospective, multicenter study designed to evaluate the progression-free survival of docetaxel and bevacizumab ± trastuzumab f...
The primary objectives are to determine the progression-free survival (PFS) and to evaluate safety of the trastuzumab, bevacizumab and docetaxel regimen.
This study will evaluate the efficacy and toxicity of docetaxel, gemcitabine and bevacizumab combination, administered biweekly, as salvage treatment in patients with metastatic and HER2 n...
Bevacizumab is a monoclonal antibody currently used for the treatment of colorectal cancer. It works by preventing the formation of new blood vessels (angiogenesis). The drug has been show...
This is a phase IIb, randomized, parallel-group, noncomparative, multicenter, pilot study designed to evaluate the safety and efficacy of bevacizumab with or without (+/-) trastuzumab admi...
The approval of injectable generic drugs does not require bioequivalence testing. However, although generic products contain the same level of the active compound, the levels and types of additives pr...
The purposes of this study were to investigate the incidence of lymphedema in patients with breast cancer during and after adjuvant treatment with docetaxel, doxorubicin, and cyclophosphamide (TAC), t...
One major concern in the treatment of cancer patients during chemotherapy is drug resistance. Here we investigated the effects of soy isoflavone extracts alone or in combination with Docetaxel on the ...
A randomised phase II trial of docetaxel versus docetaxel plus carboplatin in patients with castration-resistant prostate cancer who have progressed after response to prior docetaxel chemotherapy: The RECARDO trial.
Docetaxel is standard first-line chemotherapy for patients with metastatic castration-resistant prostate carcinoma (mCRPC). Docetaxel re-challenge has never been tested in a prospective randomised con...
This study assessed the effect of pegfilgrastim in patients with early stage breast cancer who were receiving docetaxel and cyclophosphamide(TC)therapy(75mg/m / 2 docetaxel plus 600 mg/m2 cyclophospha...
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.
Cancer is not just one disease but many diseases. There are more than 100 different types of cancer. Most cancers are named for the organ or type of cell in which they start - for example, cancer that begins in the colon is called colon cancer; cancer th...
