Neoadjuvant Docetaxel in Treating Women With Newly Diagnosed Breast Cancer
This trial is active, not recruiting.
|Treatments||pegfilgrastim, docetaxel, conventional surgery, neoadjuvant therapy|
|Sponsor||Sidney Kimmel Comprehensive Cancer Center|
|Collaborator||National Cancer Institute (NCI)|
|Start date||July 2003|
|End date||May 2006|
|Trial size||19 participants|
|Trial identifier||NCT00080626, J0266 CDR0000346460, JHOC-03012301, JHOC-J0266, P30CA006973, P50CA088843|
RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as docetaxel, work in different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die. Giving a chemotherapy drug before surgery may shrink the tumor so that it can be removed.
PURPOSE: This phase II trial is studying how well neoadjuvant docetaxel works in treating women who are undergoing surgery for breast cancer.

|Official title||A Pilot Study Assessing Patterns of Response or Resistance to Preoperative Dose Dense Docetaxel in Women With Newly Diagnosed Breast Cancer|
|Principal investigator||Vered Stearns, MD|
|Description||OBJECTIVES: Primary - Correlate baseline and change in apoptosis and proliferation with clinical and pathological response to neoadjuvant docetaxel followed by surgery in women with newly diagnosed breast cancer. Secondary - Correlate baseline and change in fludeoxyglucose F 18 positron emission tomography uptake with clinical and pathological response in patients treated with this regimen. - Correlate baseline and change in gene expression profiles with clinical and pathological response in patients treated with this regimen. - Correlate baseline and change in tumor and serum proteomic patterns with clinical and pathological response in patients treated with this regimen. OUTLINE: This is a pilot study. - Neoadjuvant chemotherapy: Patients receive docetaxel IV over 1 hour on day 1 and pegfilgrastim subcutaneously (SC) on day 2. Treatment repeats every 14 days for 4 courses in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. - Surgery: Within 2-4 weeks after the completion of 4 courses of docetaxel, patients undergo breast-conserving surgery or a mastectomy at the discretion of the treating surgeon. Patients may receive additional chemotherapy prior to surgery at the discretion of the treating physician. - Adjuvant chemotherapy: Patients receive adjuvant chemotherapy at the discretion of the treating physician. - Radiotherapy: Patients undergo radiotherapy after the completion of all chemotherapy at the discretion of the treating physician. - Hormonal therapy: Patients with estrogen- and/or progesterone-positive tumors receive hormonal therapy after the completion of chemotherapy and all local therapies at the discretion of the treating physician. Patients are followed every 6 months. PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 40 patients will be accrued for this study.|
