Chemotherapy and Peripheral Stem Cell Transplantation Followed by Trastuzumab in Treating Women With Metastatic Breast Cancer

2014-08-27 03:57:30 | BioPortfolio

Summary

RATIONALE: Chemotherapy uses different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die. Combining chemotherapy with peripheral stem cell transplantation may allow the doctor to give higher doses of chemotherapy drugs and kill more tumor cells. Monoclonal antibodies such as trastuzumab can locate tumor cells and either kill them or deliver tumor-killing substances to them without harming normal cells.

PURPOSE: Phase I/II trial to study the effectiveness of chemotherapy and peripheral stem cell transplantation followed by trastuzumab in treating women who have metastatic breast cancer.

Description

OBJECTIVES: I. Determine the safety and toxicity profile, specifically cardiac toxicity, of trastuzumab (Herceptin) following high dose chemotherapy and autologous peripheral blood stem cell transplantation in women with metastatic breast cancer. II. Determine the time to disease progression and disease free survival in these patients when treated with this regimen. III. Determine the impact of trastuzumab (Herceptin) on minimal residual disease after autologous peripheral blood stem cell transplantation as evidenced by serial immunocytochemical analysis of bone marrow. IV. Determine the relationship between posttransplant reconstitution of antibody dependent cellular toxicity and the efficacy of trastuzumab (Herceptin) in these patients.

OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study. Patients undergo stem cell mobilization with growth factors alone (filgrastim (G-CSF) and/or sargramostim (GM-CSF)) or chemotherapy followed by growth factors (depending on center). Peripheral blood stem cells (PBSC) are then collected by leukapheresis. Patients then receive high dose chemotherapy consisting of cyclophosphamide IV over 1 hour and cisplatin IV over 72 hours on days -6 to -4 and carmustine IV on day -3 or cyclophosphamide IV, thiotepa IV, and carboplatin IV over 96 hours on days -7 to -4 (depending on center). PBSC are reinfused on day 0. Patients then receive trastuzumab IV over 30-90 minutes weekly for 1 year or until disease progression beginning 5-8 weeks after PBSC reinfusion.

PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 70 patients will be accrued for this study.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A very toxic alkylating antineoplastic agent also used as an insect sterilant. It causes skin, gastrointestinal, CNS, and bone marrow damage. According to the Fourth Annual Report on Carcinogens (NTP 85-002, 1985), thiotepa may reasonably be anticipated to be a carcinogen (Merck Index, 11th ed).

An inorganic and water-soluble platinum complex. After undergoing hydrolysis, it reacts with DNA to produce both intra and interstrand crosslinks. These crosslinks appear to impair replication and transcription of DNA. The cytotoxicity of cisplatin correlates with cellular arrest in the G2 phase of the cell cycle.

Precursor of an alkylating nitrogen mustard antineoplastic and immunosuppressive agent that must be activated in the LIVER to form the active aldophosphamide. It has been used in the treatment of LYMPHOMA and LEUKEMIA. Its side effect, ALOPECIA, has been used for defleecing sheep. Cyclophosphamide may also cause sterility, birth defects, mutations, and cancer.

Transplantation of stem cells collected from the peripheral blood. It is a less invasive alternative to direct marrow harvesting of hematopoietic stem cells. Enrichment of stem cells in peripheral blood can be achieved by inducing mobilization of stem cells from the BONE MARROW.

An organoplatinum compound that possesses antineoplastic activity.
