In this study, patients with metastatic HER2-negative breast cancer will receive treatment with ixabepilone and sorafenib until disease progression or unacceptable toxicity occurs. The Phase I portion of this study will determine the maximum tolerated doses (MTDs) of sorafenib and ixabepilone that may be used in combination for first- or second-line treatment of MBC. The MTDs identified in the Phase I portion of the study will be used in the Phase II portion which will evaluate the efficacy and safety of the combination of sorafenib and ixabepilone in patients who have received at least one prior chemotherapy treatment in either the adjuvant or neoadjuvant setting or following one prior MBC chemotherapy in MBC patients who had not received prior adjuvant or neoadjuvant breast cancer chemotherapy. This will be one of the initial trials investigating the use of this treatment combination for MBC.
This trial will be conducted under the leadership of the Sarah Cannon Research Institute (SCRI) Oncology Research Consortium, a community-based, multi-center, clinical trial organization.

To provide extended access to Ixabepilone therapy to subjects with metastatic breast cancer who have completed the previous Phase II study (CA163-107)
The purpose of this study is to find out what effects different schedules of ixabepilone has on the patient and her metastatic breast cancer
The purpose of this study is to determine the pharmacokinetics of oral Ixabepilone.
RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as ixabepilone, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from dividing. Hydroxy...
We propose to evaluate ixabepilone in combination with cyclophosphamide for the neoadjuvant treatment of locally advanced breast cancer. In this regimen, ixabepilone is substituted for doc...
Response to sorafenib is highly variable in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). Baseline inflammatory parameters and treatment toxicities may improve survival prediction in patients on sorafenib therapy.
Despite advances in breast cancer screening, diagnosis, and treatment, nearly 12% of patients with a diagnosis of breast cancer eventually develop metastatic disease, or breast cancer that has spread ...
Tyrosine kinase inhibitors like sunitinib and sorafenib are commonly used to treat metastatic renal cell cancer patients. Cubilin is a membrane protein expressed in the proximal renal tubule. Cubilin ...
There continues to be a lack of systemic options for advanced hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC); sorafenib and, very recently, regorafenib are the only approved options. There exists a potential to combi...
Background-aims: The clinical benefit of sorafenib in patients with hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) has been undervalued due to the absence of complete responses even though patients who develop early ...
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)
