RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as doxorubicin hydrochloride liposome, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from dividing.
- Evaluate the effectiveness of pegylated liposomal doxorubicin hydrochloride, in terms of objective response rate, in elderly women with metastatic breast cancer.
- Determine the feasibility of this drug in these patients.
- Evaluate chemotherapy-induced toxicities in these patients.
- Assess the disease-free survival and overall survival of these patients.
- Study the geriatric covariates.
- Assess the covariates predictive of the hematopoietic reserve and the risk of febrile neutropenia in these patients.
OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study.
Patients receive pegylated liposomal doxorubicin hydrochloride IV over 60-90 minutes on day 1. Treatment repeats every 28 days for 6 courses in the absence of unacceptable toxicity or progressive disease.
After completion of study therapy, patients are followed up periodically for 2 years.
Allocation: Non-Randomized, Primary Purpose: Treatment

This phase I trial studies the side effects and the best dose of veliparib when given together with pegylated liposomal doxorubicin hydrochloride in treating patients with ovarian cancer, ...
The primary goal is to determine the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) of the combination of T-DM1 and non-pegylated liposomal doxorubicin in metastatic breast cancer (mBC) patients previously ...
In this study, PLD, an anthracycline encapsulated in stealth liposomes, which are believed to efficiently deliver the doxorubicin within the tumour mass with less toxicity compared with st...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and efficacy of pegylated liposomal doxorubicin (Caelyx) in elderly patients who are to receive first-line chemotherapy for metastatic o...
RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as liposomal doxorubicin and docetaxel, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping the...
The extravasation of chemotherapeutic agents is a challenge for oncologic care teams. The management of nonliposomal (conventional) anthracyclines is well established in clinical practice guidelines, ...
To compare the pharmacokinetic bioequivalence and safety of a generic pegylated liposomal doxorubicin formulation (SPIL DXR hydrochloride liposome injection) with that of the reference products, Caely...
MM-302 is an anti-HER2 antibody-targeted pegylated liposomal doxorubicin designed to deliver doxorubicin specifically to HER2-expressing solid tumors. The delivery and activity of MM-302 was evaluated...
Breast cancer is most frequently diagnosed cancer and fifth leading cause of death in women. About 20-30% of all breast cancers overexpress HER2/neu receptors. Lapatinib is a dual tyrosin kinase inhib...
Acidic pH in the tumor microenvironment is associated with cancer metabolism and creates a physiological barrier that prevents from drugs to penetrate cells. Specifically, ionizable weak-base drugs, s...
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...
