LY231514 Plus Gemcitabine in Treating Women With Metastatic Breast Cancer

2014-07-23 21:56:26 | BioPortfolio

Summary

RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die. Combining more than one drug may kill more tumor cells.

PURPOSE: Phase II trial to study the effectiveness of combining LY231514 plus gemcitabine in treating women who have metastatic breast cancer.

Description

OBJECTIVES:

- Assess the antitumor activity of pemetrexed disodium in combination with gemcitabine in the treatment of women with metastatic breast cancer who have received an anthracycline and a taxane in the adjuvant and/or metastatic setting and no more than 1 chemotherapy regimen for metastatic disease (unless these were a taxane and anthracycline).

- Determine the toxicity of this regimen in this patient population.

- Determine time to progression and overall survival of these patients receiving this regimen.

OUTLINE: Patients receive gemcitabine IV over 30 minutes on days 1 and 8. pemetrexed disodium IV is administered over 10 minutes 90 minutes following gemcitabine on day 8. Treatment continues every 21 days for a minimum of 6 courses in the absence of unacceptable toxicity or disease progression. Patients achieving a complete response receive 2 additional courses.

Patients are followed every 3 months for 5 years.

PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 60 patients will be accrued for this study within 1 year.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.
