The purpose of this study is to test the safety and benefit of two new drugs for the treatment of breast cancer. The patient is eligible for the study because their breast cancer has grown in spite of standard treatment. The two drugs tested in the study, Neratinib and Temsirolimus, will be given together. Also, this study will help the investigators learn why therapy directed against HER2 sometimes stops working.
Phase I Design
A standard, 3+3, dose escalation schedule will be used. Between 6 and 12 patients will likely be necessary to determine the MTD of temsirolimus in combination with neratinib. There will be no intrapatient dose escalation. The starting dose of temsirolimus is 8 mg administered intravenously weekly (dose level 1). Three patients will initially be enrolled in each cohort.
Phase II Design
The phase II portion of this trial will be comprised of two cohorts—HER2-amplified and triple negative breast cancer—each of which has a Simon two-stage design to determine the efficacy of temsirolimus when administered in combination with neratinib. Both pathologic subtypes of patients will be studied separately though accrual will be simultaneous. Response (RECIST criteria) will be assessed every 8 weeks (every 2 cycles) after the start of therapy.

The primary purpose of this study is to identify the maximum tolerated dose(s) of neratinib in combination with temsirolimus in subjects with solid tumors. This study will also include a ...
The purpose of this study is to investigate whether neratinib can reduce the risk of previously diagnosed HER-2 positive breast cancer from returning after treatment with trastuzumab.
This research study is studying a drug called Neratinib with and without Fulvestrant as possible treatments for HER2-positive breast cancer . The interventions involved in this study are:...
This is a phase I study. The purpose of this study is to test the safety of the study drug neratinib in combination with a standard chemotherapy drug called capecitabine at different doses...
Approximately 30-50% of advanced HER2-positive breast cancer patients will develop central nervous system (CNS) metastases, with an annual risk of around 10%, and a half of them will die from brain pr...
Gene expression profiling of breast cancer has demonstrated the importance of stromal response in determining the prognosis of invasive breast cancer. The host response to breast cancer is of increasi...
The number of old people with breast cancer is estimated to increase during the next years in developed countries. However, management of breast cancer in octogenarians is not well established. The ma...
The aim of this study was to assess the frequency of second primary non-breast cancer after breast cancer diagnosis and treatment, and its correlation with clinicopathological features.
Phthalates, known endocrine disruptors, may play a role in breast carcinogenesis. Few studies have examined phthalates in relation to breast cancer (BC), and, to our knowledge, none have considered su...
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.
