RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die.
- Determine the clinical activity of BMS-247550, in terms of tumor response rate, in women with taxane-resistant metastatic breast cancer.
- Determine the safety of this drug in these patients.
- Determine the duration of response, time to progression, and survival of patients treated with this drug.
OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study.
Patients receive BMS-247550 IV over 3 hours on day 1. Treatment continues every 3 weeks for 4-18 courses in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. Patients achieving complete response (CR) receive 4 additional courses beyond CR. Responding patients may receive additional courses at the investigator's discretion.
Patients are followed every 3 months.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 14-50 patients will be accrued for this study within 12 months.
Primary Purpose: Treatment

We propose to evaluate ixabepilone in combination with cyclophosphamide for the neoadjuvant treatment of locally advanced breast cancer. In this regimen, ixabepilone is substituted for doc...
The goal of this clinical research study is to learn about certain genes and proteins in tumors that do not respond well to treatment. These features will be compared with the status of t...
To provide extended access to Ixabepilone therapy to subjects with metastatic breast cancer who have completed the previous Phase II study (CA163-107)
The purpose of this study is to find out what effects different schedules of ixabepilone has on the patient and her metastatic breast cancer
The purpose of this clinical research study is to learn if Ixabepilone plus bevacizumab is effective in shrinking or stopping the growth of cancer when given as first line chemotherapy in ...
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...
The number of old people with breast cancer is estimated to increase during the next years in developed countries. However, management of breast cancer in octogenarians is not well established. The ma...
The aim of this study was to assess the frequency of second primary non-breast cancer after breast cancer diagnosis and treatment, and its correlation with clinicopathological features.
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...
Alcohol consumption is an established and important risk factor for breast cancer incidence in the general population. However, the relationship between alcohol and mortality among women with breast c...
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...
