Treatment strategies that include induction chemotherapy have several potential advantages: early initiation of systemic chemotherapy, in vivo assessment of response, and down-staging of both the primary tumor and regional lymphatic metastases, making breast conservation an option for many. The aim of the present study is to determine the efficacy and toxicity of induction combination chemotherapy with the triplet, gemcitabine, epirubicin, and docetaxel, in patients with locall...
The molecular breast imaging (MBI) is a potential modality to screen breast cancer. In this study, we compare and evaluate the recall rate/diagnostic efficiency of MBI, mammography and breast sonography, and aim to determine best ways of breast cancer screening.
This research trial studies whole exome sequencing in finding causative variants in germline deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) samples from patients with hypertension receiving bevacizumab for breast cancer. Studying samples of germline DNA in the laboratory from patients with hypertension receiving bevacizumab for breast cancer may help doctors learn about changes that occur in DNA and identify biomarkers related to hypertension.
The purpose of this pilot study is to investigate the potential clinical benefits of combining two new diagnostic tools to provide co-registered anatomical and functional information in the breast in patients with suspected breast cancer.
This research trial studies whole exome sequencing in finding causative variants in germline deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) samples from patients with peripheral neuropathy receiving chemotherapy for breast cancer. Studying samples of germline DNA in the laboratory from patients with peripheral neuropathy receiving paclitaxel for breast cancer may help doctors learn more about changes that occur in DNA and identify biomarkers related to peripheral neuropathy.
This research trial studies whole exome sequencing in finding causative variants in germline deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) samples from patients with congestive heart failure receiving therapy for breast cancer. Studying samples of germline DNA in the laboratory from patients with congestive heart failure receiving therapy for breast cancer may help doctors learn more about changes that occur in DNA and identify biomarkers related to congestive heart failure.
This study is designed to determine the efficacy of the biweekly pemetrexed/gemcitabine regimen when given to patients with metastatic breast cancer. Each agent has well demonstrated antitumor activity in patients with locally advanced or metastatic breast cancer. In addition, in the phase I combination trial of the two agents, a durable tumor response was seen in one out of three heavily pretreated breast cancer patients (Adjei et al. 2000). Therefore, it is reasonable to ...
In order to improve the survival of metastatic breast patients, it is important to investigate the use of novel therapeutic agents combined with known active agents in the treatment of breast cancer. This is a phase I study evaluating the maximum tolerated doses and toxicities of RAD001 in combination with capecitabine for the treatment of metastatic breast cancer. RAD001 (INN: everolimus) is a novel macrolide, which is being developed as an antiproliferative drug with applicat...
The two drugs used to treat metastatic breast cancer in this study may perform better when used together than when used separately. The use of another drug that prevents the most common side effect of the two-drug combination permits the delivery of both agents at closer to the "full" dose for either when used alone. We hypothesize that the two-drug combination used with G-CSF support will be more effective and less toxic than other standard regimens for the treatment of meta...
Systemic chemotherapy along with radiotherapy has been successfully used to post-operatively manage patients following tumour resection in breast cancer. This was further supported with clinical trials conducted in the 1970s and 1980s which shows significant improvement in progression-free of tumours and overall survival rates in patients who undergo chemotherapy for operable breast cancer.(1)-(2) Neoadjuvant chemotherapy on the other hand, involves the administration of the c...
The aim of our study is to investigate the potential role of the CYP2D6*4 polymorphism in breast cancer and furthermore to assess the role of oxidative stress, antioxidant capacity and ferretin in pathogenesis of breast cancer in different CYP2D6*4 genotypes
To see if performing breast MRI before a lumpectomy will help the surgeon successfully remove the entire cancer with normal tissue margins in a single operation thereby reducing the need for additional surgical procedures. The study will also measure how well MRI can find unsuspected cancers in the same breast as the known cancer; how well MRI will find unsuspected cancers in the opposite breast; how often MRI will generate false positive MRI findings; whether routinely incorpo...
Over the last 3 decades, a steady shift has occurred in the management of breast cancer. Because it was traditionally viewed as a local disease, many advocated the use of radical surgery to achieve maximum survival benefit. This view has been slowly replaced by a broader biologic view that recognizes the often systemic nature of breast cancer, even when it appears to be localized to the breast. Results from randomized clinical trials have demonstrated that less extensive surger...
Neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NAC) is widely used as an efficient breast cancer treatment. Ideally, a pathological complete remission (pCR) can be achieved. With improvements in molecular typing guided NAC and targeted therapies, there has been dramatic improvement in pCR rates, especially among triple-negative and human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 positive breast cancers. Rates of pCR in these groups of patients can reach 60% or higher. NAC has significantly promoted the lo...
RATIONALE: Gathering information about patients with breast cancer and their families may help the study of breast cancer in the future. PURPOSE: This clinical trial is gathering information about patients with breast cancer and their families.
The purpose of the study is to study the epidemic features and diagnosis of female breast cancer, especially the diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer.The disease-free survival (DFS) and the total survival time(OS) of the breast cancer patients will also be studied.
RATIONALE: Studying mammograms for breast density changes over time may help doctors predict breast cancer risk. PURPOSE: This natural history study is looking at changes in breast density and gathering health information over time to assess breast cancer risk in women with breast cancer and in healthy women.
One important approach to change the natural history of advanced breast cancer is that of designing new combination chemotherapies in which the best drugs already available are used together with new anticancer agents devoid of clinical cross-resistance. The possibility of exploiting the combined use of cetuximab and trastuzumab represents an option of potential great impact on the probability of response and long-term therapeutic results for patients with advanced breast cance...
Women with breast cancer who are not eligible for breast conserving surgery or who have node-involvement are sometimes treated with chemotherapy up front, in hopes of allowing for a woman to keep her breast and decreasing the size of the excision for her breast cancer. While current research has shown that survival is the same whether women are treated with chemotherapy first or surgery first for breast cancer, the investigators do not yet know how to treat women with persisten...
The purpose of this study is to collect a blood sample from patients with breast disease (cases) and from individuals without breast cancer (controls)that may be used for research purposes. These blood samples will be used by researchers at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center who study the causes of breast cancer, as well as more effective ways to prevent, diagnose, and treat breast cancer.
Breast cancer remains the most common cancer in women worldwide. Semaphorin4C (SEMA4C) has previously been identified as a highly expressed protein by breast cancer-associated lymphatic endothelial cells (LECs). The objective of this study is to investigate SEMA4C's potential role as an early relapse biomarker in breast cancer.
Despite significant advances in the early detection and treatment of breast cancer, it is still the most common cancer among women in the U.S. and up to 25% will die of their disease. Therefore, more attention has focused on primary prevention to reduce breast cancer-related morbidity and mortality. Due to the limited number of significant modifiable risk factors for breast cancer, researchers are exploring the potential of chemoprevention to arrest or reverse cancer developmen...
Breast cancer is the most common female malignancy in the world, and the leading cause of cancer-associated mortalities among women. Hormone receptors (HR) including ER and PR are the main prognostic factor for breast cancer patients. Breast cancer subtype was defined by ER, PR, HER2 and Ki67 status since the definition of intrinsic subtypes for breast cancer. Breast cancer which ER are positive have less aggressive and better long-term prognoses than other breast cancer subtyp...
The investigators hypothesize that a regimen of three widely available, generic and minimally toxic antineoplastic agents (CMF) will result in improved patient adherence and relatively low toxicity for hormone receptor-positive Ugandan women with locally advanced breast cancer.
The purpose of the study is to investigate the impacts of radiation and the timing of radiation on autologous and prosthetic-based breast reconstruction in Chinese post-mastectomy breast cancer patients. The study aims to optimize the timing for autologous/prosthetic breast reconstruction which delivers the best aesthetic results while maintains low complication rate and best integrates into the comprehensive breast cancer treatment. The study is open to all female breast cance...
