The purposes of this are:
- To determine the highest doses of Taxol and Navelbine that we can safely give to patients;
- To determine what kind of side effects are caused by the combination of Taxol, Navelbine and G-CSF;
- To determine whether the combination of Taxol, Navelbine and G-CSF is more effective than standard therapy in treating metastatic breast cancer and prolonging life;

The purpose of this study is to compare two different combinations of chemotherapy with trastuzumab as initial treatment for HER2 positive advanced breast cancer. Half of the patients wil...
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 trastuzumab, can locate tumor cel...
RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as vinorelbine, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from dividing. Monoclo...
This research study is studying a combination of drugs as a possible treatment for breast cancer. The drugs involved in this study are: - Group A: Trastuzumab (Herceptin) + Vino...
The combination of vinorelbine with weekly trastuzumab has produced high response rate in HER2 overexpressing metastatic breast cancer (MBC). The present phase 2 study was planned to test ...
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...
Paclitaxel (taxol) is an important agent against many tumors, including breast cancer. Ample data documents that paclitaxel inhibits breast cancer metastasis while others prove that paclitaxel enhance...
Oestrogen receptor (ER) is expressed in approximately 60%-70% of human breast cancer. Clinical trials and retrospective analyses have shown that ER-positive (ER+) tumours are more tolerant to chemothe...
The aim of this study was to record the opinions of Italian oncologists about the use of oral vinorelbine administered metronomically in patients with advanced breast cancer.
A randomized phase II trial of trastuzumab plus capecitabine versus lapatinib plus capecitabine in patients with HER2-positive metastatic breast cancer previously treated with trastuzumab and taxanes: WJOG6110B/ELTOP.
For human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2)-positive metastatic breast cancer (MBC) with progression on trastuzumab-based therapy, continuing trastuzumab beyond progression and switching to la...
A humanized monoclonal antibody against the ERBB-2 RECEPTOR (HER2). As an ANTINEOPLASTIC AGENT, it is used to treat BREAST CANCER where HER2 is overexpressed.
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.
