The aim of the CHAT study ("An open-label, randomized Phase II study of Herceptin (trastuzumab), Taxotere® (docetaxel) and Xeloda (capecitabine) in combination, versus Herceptin (trastuzumab) plus Taxotere® (docetaxel), in patients with advanced and/or metastatic breast cancers that overexpress HER2") was to test the combination of Trastuzumab and Docetaxel with or without capecitabine as first-line therapy for HER2 positive locally advanced or metastatic breast cancer.
Overall Response Rate was the primary endpoint of the CHAT study. This study failed to meet its primary objective of showing a difference between the treatment groups, with equivalent high response rates for the Trastuzumab plus Docetaxel and Trastuzumab, Docetaxel plus capecitabine arms.
Secondary endpoints in the CHAT study were Progression-Free-Survival, Time-to-Progression, Overall Survival, duration of response and safety profile. Whilst analysis of the existing data is consistent with improvement with the triplet therapy, interpretation is compromised by the relatively short median follow-up of 24 months. In hindsight the statistical design was flawed by selection of a sub optimal primary endpoint and consequently data was collected and analysed early in relation to time-dependent endpoints. Beyond CHAT will permit capture of mature data for time-related endpoints. Time-to-Progression and Overall Survival are the co-primary endpoints for the Beyond CHAT protocol. The impact of treatment following the first progression, on survival, will be explored.
Time-to-Progression will be defined from the time interval between the date of randomisation and the occurrence of progressive disease under therapy according to RECIST criteria.
Overall Survival will be defined as the time from date of randomisation to date of death
The objective of this study is to gain mature data on the long-term efficacy of the combination of Trastuzumab and Docetaxel with or without capecitabine as first-line therapy for HER2 positive locally advanced or metastatic breast cancer.
The study also aims to gain information on the additional treatments and sequencing used in patients that have progressed following the combination of Trastuzumab and Docetaxel with or without capecitabine as first-line therapy for HER2 positive locally advanced or metastatic breast cancer.
Overall Survival data on patients who have progressed following the combination of Trastuzumab and Docetaxel with or without capecitabine as first-line therapy for HER2 positive locally advanced or metastatic breast cancer will also be analysed and reported.

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...
