The primary purpose of this study is to determine the objective response rate (complete and partial response) for patients who receive LY573636 for metastatic breast cancer.
Patient will receive a 2-hour intravenous infusion of study drug (LY573636) once every 28 days. Radiologic imaging scans will be performed before the first dose of study drug and then after every other treatment. Patients will be assessed for clinical progression at every visit and for response approximately every 56 days (every other cycle).
Allocation: Non-Randomized, Control: Historical Control, Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Treatment

The purpose of this study is to determine a safe dose of LY573636-sodium to be given to patients with relapsed or refractory acute myeloid leukemia and to determine any side effects that m...
The primary objective is to estimate the time to progressive disease for patients who receive LY573636 after two previous treatments for metastatic non-small cell lung cancer. Patients wil...
The primary purpose of the study is to estimate the time from the first dose of LY573636 to the date your physician determines that your disease has progressed or worsened.
The primary purpose of this study is to determine the objective response rate (complete and partial response) for patients who receive LY573636 after one prior systemic treatment for unres...
The primary objective is to determine whether LY573636 is effective in treating platinum-resistant ovarian cancer. Patients will receive an intravenous infusion of study drug once every 2...
The accumulating evidence indicates that weight gain in adulthood is more predictive of breast cancer risk than absolute body weight. However, the relative impact of timing of weight gain in adulthood...
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...
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...
Assessing trends in breast cancer survival among young women who are largely unaffected by breast cancer screening will provide important information regarding improvements in the effectiveness of can...
Early breast cancer follow-up guidelines for patients who underwent surgery suggest a regular and accurate clinical examination of the breast area, for an early identification of cutaneous or subcutan...
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.
