Anti Cancer Stem Cell Activity of Pre-operative Bevacizumab and Chemotherapy in Breast Cancer
This trial is active, not recruiting.
|Treatments||bevacizumab, no bevacizumab|
|Start date||May 2010|
|End date||May 2017|
|Trial size||75 participants|
|Trial identifier||NCT01190345, AVASTEM/IPC 2009-001|
The purpose of this study is to evaluate anti-cancer stem cell (CSC) activity (measured by the amount of Aldehyde dehydrogenase 1/ALDH1+ cells before and after treatment) of pre-operative bevacizumab in combination with conventional chemotherapy in breast cancer receiving neo-adjuvant treatment, compared to a control arm receiving chemotherapy alone.
