Cyclosporine A in Combination With Nab-Paclitaxel in Patients With Metastatic Breast Cancer

2014-08-27 03:19:05 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The purpose of this research study is to evaluate the safety of therapy with nab-paclitaxel and CsA and if the addition of Cyclosporine A (CsA) to nab-paclitaxel helps stop cancer cells as well as or better than nab-paclitaxel alone.

Description

Treatment for metastatic breast cancer commonly involves the use of the chemotherapy drug nab-paclitaxel. Nab-paclitaxel is a special preparation of paclitaxel inside a protein layer of albumin. Other studies have shown Cyclosporine A (CsA) may block the progression of advanced breast cancer. The combination of nab-paclitaxel and CsA is considered investigational which means it has not been approved by the US Food and Drug Administration, FDA. Participants on this study will receive nab-paclitaxel through a vein in the arm weekly 3 weeks out of 4, in the outpatient clinic. On the same day as the first infusion of nab-paclitaxel, participants will begin taking CsA tablets twice a day by mouth. Participants will continue to receive study treatment as long as their tumor responds. If the tumor does not respond or the participant experience severe side effects from study treatment, she will be removed from the study and offered other therapies, if that is appropriate.

The early onset of peripheral neuropathy might be a robust predictor for time to treatment failure in patients with metastatic breast cancer receiving chemotherapy containing paclitaxel.

Paclitaxel plays a central role in chemotherapy for breast cancer. Peripheral neuropathy, a well-known toxicity with paclitaxel, may be of interest in predicting the efficacy of paclitaxel therapy for...

Safety and Efficacy of Low-dose Nanoparticle Albumin-bound Paclitaxel for HER2-negative Metastatic Breast Cancer.

Nab-paclitaxel (nab-PTX) is an albumin-bound paclitaxel formulation. Although nab-PTX has shown superior efficacy compared to conventional paclitaxel (PTX) in metastatic breast cancer (MBC), chemother...

Significant Association Between Low Baseline Neutrophil-to-Lymphocyte Ratio and Improved Progression-free Survival of Patients With Locally Advanced or Metastatic Breast Cancer Treated With Eribulin But Not With Nab-Paclitaxel.

Although eribulin and nab-paclitaxel are chemotherapy agents widely used for locally advanced or metastatic breast cancer (MBC), their predictive factors remain unknown. Because the absolute neutrophi...

Phase II, multicentre, randomised trial of eribulin plus gemcitabine versus paclitaxel plus gemcitabine as first-line chemotherapy in patients with HER2-negative metastatic breast cancer.

Paclitaxel plus gemcitabine (PG) combination chemotherapy is a preferred chemotherapeutic regimen for patients with metastatic breast cancer (MBC). Eribulin mesylate is a halichondrin non-taxane inhib...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.

Abnormal accumulation of lymph in the arm, shoulder and breast area associated with surgical or radiation breast cancer treatments (e.g., MASTECTOMY).

An estrogen responsive cell line derived from a patient with metastatic human breast ADENOCARCINOMA (at the Michigan Cancer Foundation.)

A synthetic long-acting agonist of GONADOTROPIN-RELEASING HORMONE. Goserelin is used in treatments of malignant NEOPLASMS of the prostate, uterine fibromas, and metastatic breast cancer.

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)
