To evaluate the ability of MVA-BN-HER2 to generate humoral and cellular immune responses to HER-2, and to evaluate the duration of these responses.
Exploratory analysis comparing the ability of MVA-BN-HER2 to generate humoral and cellular immune responses to Her-2 in high risk stage III patients who have completed adjuvant chemotherapy and Trastuzumab and stage IV breast cancer patients who must receive ongoing therapy for metastatic disease.
Feasibility of completing 6 vaccines in this high risk patient population.

The purpose of this study is to learn more about how to treat patients with HER-2/neu positive invasive breast cancer (IBC). HER-2/neu is a type of protein that is known to be over-express...
RATIONALE: Studying the immune response to a vaccine made from HER2/neu protein may help doctors plan better treatment for patients with breast cancer that overexpresses HER2. PURPOSE: Th...
This is a phase II, single arm (no placebo, no randomization) study in patients who: - Have HER2 overexpressing Stage IIIB, IIIC or IV breast cancer - Have been treated with Hercep...
This will be a single arm phase I-II single institution clinical trial in patients with HER2 overexpressing Stage IV breast and ovarian cancer who are on maintenance trastuzumab alone afte...
The purpose of this study is to learn more about how to treat patients with a diagnosis of diagnosis of Human Epidermal Growth Factor Receptor 2/neu (HER-2/neu) positive breast cancer in t...
De novo or acquired resistance in breast cancer leads to treatment failures and disease progression. In human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2)-positive (HER2+) breast cancer, Src, a non-recep...
Breast cancer is the leading cause of cancer-related mortality in women worldwide. Trastuzumab (Herceptin) is an effective antibody drug for HER2 positive breast cancer; or acquired trastuzumab resis...
Resistance to HER2-targeted therapy with trastuzumab still remains a major challenge in HER2-amplified tumors. Here we investigated the potential role of MEL-18, a polycomb group gene, as a novel prog...
Human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2) -positive breast cancers tend to be more aggressive and more likely to recur than HER2-negative breast cancers. However, novel anti-HER2 therapies have ...
Triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC) and HER2-positive breast cancer are more aggressive than other subtypes of breast cancer. Due to the limited number of treatment alternatives and the absence o...
A humanized monoclonal antibody against the ERBB-2 RECEPTOR (HER2). As an ANTINEOPLASTIC AGENT, it is used to treat BREAST CANCER where HER2 is overexpressed.
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.
