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.
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.
Primary Purpose: Treatment

This research study hopes to examine the effects of Coenzyme Q10 on doxorubicin (Adriamycin) metabolism during breast cancer treatment. Doxorubicin is a lifesaving breast cancer treatment....
In this study, PLD, an anthracycline encapsulated in stealth liposomes, which are believed to efficiently deliver the doxorubicin within the tumour mass with less toxicity compared with st...
Primary objective is to determine the effectiveness of the combination of bortezomib and doxorubicin in patients with metastatic breast cancer. The trial format is a single arm Phase II d...
Primary: To determine the pathological remission following the chemotherapy combination docetaxel and doxorubicin in large breast cancer Secondary: - Clinical response rate ...
Primary objective : - To compare disease-free survival after treatment with docetaxel in combination with doxorubicin and cyclophosphamide to doxorubicin and cyclophosphamide foll...
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...
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...
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 is becoming a relevant tool for understanding the molecular mechanisms involved in the response to new drug delivery systems. The applicability of this experimental approach to cell cultu...
Breast cancer treatment often includes Doxorubicin as adjuvant as well as neoadjuvant chemotherapy. Despite its cytotoxicity, cells can develop drug resistance to Doxorubicin. Uncovering pathways and ...
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...
