Doxorubicin in Treating Women With Advanced Breast Cancer

2014-08-27 03:58:48 | BioPortfolio

Summary

RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die. Giving drugs in different forms may kill more tumor cells.

PURPOSE: Phase II trial to study the effectiveness of doxorubicin in treating women with advanced metastatic breast cancer.

Description

OBJECTIVES: I. Determine the antitumor activity of doxorubicin-HPMA conjugate (PK1) in women with advanced breast cancer.

OUTLINE: This is an open label, multicenter study. Patients receive doxorubicin-HPMA conjugate (PK1) by intravenous infusion once every 3 weeks. Patients may receive a total of 6 courses of treatment in the absence of toxicity and progressive disease.

PROJECTED ACCRUAL: 14-25 patients will be accrued for this study.

Overexpression of ABCB4 contributes to acquired doxorubicin resistance in breast cancer cells in vitro.

Doxorubicin is one of the most active agents in the first-line therapy for metastatic breast cancer, but its utility is partially limited by the frequent emergence of doxorubicin resistance. In this s...

MicroRNA-574 enhances doxorubicin resistance through down-regulating SMAD4 in breast cancer cells.

Drug resistance has become an important factor that threatens the survival and prognosis of patients with breast cancer, especially in patients with advanced breast cancer. Several microRNAs have been...

Hyperactivated m-calpain affects acquisition of doxorubicin resistance in breast cancer cells.

Doxorubicin is commonly using chemotherapeutic agents for breast cancer. However, doxorubicin has limitations in clinical use because of dose-dependent cardiotoxicity and drug resistance. Despite of p...

Metabolomics facilitates the discrimination of the specific anti-cancer effects of free- and polymer-conjugated doxorubicin in breast cancer models.

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.
