Breast Cancer Trials

Phase I/II Trial of Leflunomide in Women with Previously Treated Metastatic Triple Negative Cancer

This is a research study that has two parts, or "phases." The study is looks at a medicine called Leflunomide and how it might help women who have a specific type of breast cancer called metastatic triple-negative breast cancer. In the first phase of the study, they test the medicine's safety and how well people can tolerate it. They start with a small dose and then gradually increase it if it seems safe. They want to make sure it doesn't cause too many side effects. In the second phase, they will look more closely at how effective the medicine is in treating this type of cancer. They'll pay attention to things like how much the cancer shrinks, how long people live without their cancer getting worse, and how the participants feel while taking the medicine.

Metastatic:

Cancer that has spread from its original location or organ to other parts of the body.

Triple Negative Breast Cancer

It is a type of breast cancer in which cells do not have estrogen receptors (ER), progesterone receptors (PR), and HER-2 receptors.

A Multicenter, Phase IB/II Study of Abemaciclib in Combination with Bicalutamide for Androgen Receptor-positive, HER2-negative Metastatic Breast Cancer

This research study is testing a combination of two medicines for a specific type of breast cancer that has a protein called Androgen Receptor, which is usually found in male hormones. The cancer cells in this type of cancer respond to this protein. However, they don't have another protein called HER2. The study is focused on two medicines: Abemaciclib: This is a medicine that can slow down the growth of cancer cells by targeting specific proteins. Bicalutamide: This medicine is used to block the effects of male hormones. The study wants to see if using Abemaciclib together with Bicalutamide can work well in treating this specific type of breast cancer. They're checking if this combination can help shrink the cancer and slow its growth. In Phase IB, they'll start with a smaller dose and see how people react to it. If it's safe and well-tolerated, they'll move on to Phase II, where they'll give this combination to a larger group to get more information about how well it works.

Phase I/II Trial of Leflunomide in Women with Previously Treated Metastatic Triple Negative Cancer

The COMPASSHER2 Trials are a series of research studies focused on a certain type of breast cancer called HER2-positive breast cancer.  This trial is a double-blinded, Phase III randomized trial. One group of patients gets a medicine called T-DM1 along with a placebo. T-DM1 is a medicine that treats Her2 positive breast cancer - so both groups get the standard treatment for Her2 positive breast cancer.  The other group of patients also gets T-DM1, but in addition, they get a medicine called Tucatinib. Neither group knows whether they're getting the real medicine or the placebo. The goal of this study is to find out if adding Tucatinib to T-DM1 works better than just T-DM1 alone in treating HER2-positive breast cancer. They'll look at things like how well the cancer responds to treatment, how long it takes for the cancer to come back, and how the patients are doing during the treatment.

Double-blinded

Neither the patients nor the doctors know who is getting what treatment. This helps make sure the results are completely not biased

HER-2 positive

It is a type of breast cancer where cancer cells have higher-than-normal levels of HER-2 receptors are called HER-2 positive.  These receptors are like tiny doorways on the surface of the cells. HER-2 positive breast cancers tend to grow and spread faster than other kinds, but they also respond well to certain drugs that target the HER-2 receptor.

Randomized Trial

Patients are randomly assigned to one of two groups. It's like flipping a coin to decide who gets which treatment

Placebo:

A placebo is a substance or treatment that has no active medical properties but is given to a patient as if it were a real medication or treatment. It is often used in medical research to compare the effects of a new drug or treatment with the effects of no treatment at all. The idea is to see if the new drug or treatment is genuinely effective by comparing how patients who receive the real treatment fare compared to those who receive the placebo

A randomized, Phase II trial of circulating tumor DNA-guided second line Adjuvant therapy for high Residual risk, stage II-III, Estrogen Receptor positive, HER-2 negative breast cancer (DARE)

This is a research study that's in its second phase, and it's looking at a new way of treating a specific type of breast cancer. The focus is on a certain stage of breast cancer, specifically stages II and III, where the cancer has a higher risk of coming back even after the main treatment has been done. This type of breast cancer is known as Estrogen Receptor positive HER-2 negative. Circulating tumor DNA (ctDNA) is like tiny pieces of genetic information from the cancer cells that can be found in the blood. It's like a small trace of the cancer that can be detected without doing a biopsy. Guided second-line adjuvant therapy means they're trying to figure out a treatment plan for after the main treatment, like surgery or chemotherapy. Second-line means the second phase of treatment after the initial one. The study's goal is to see if the new way of treatment, guided by the circulating tumor DNA, works better at reducing the risk of the cancer coming back compared to the standard treatment.

Estrogen Receptor positive HER-2 negative

It is a type of breast cancer where cancer cells have estrogen receptors and are stimulated by the hormone estrogen to grow. These cells also have very little of the protein HER-2. This type of cancer tends to respond very well to therapy, since it tends to grow slowly.

HER-2 positive

It is a type of breast cancer where cancer cells have higher-than-normal levels of HER-2 receptors are called HER-2 positive.  These receptors are like tiny doorways on the surface of the cells. HER-2 positive breast cancers tend to grow and spread faster than other kinds, but they also respond well to certain drugs that target the HER-2 receptor.

A Phase III, Randomized, Open-Label, Multicenter Study Evaluating The Efficacy And Saftey Of Giredestrant Plus Everolimus Compared With Eexmestane Plus Everolimus In Patients With Estrogen Receptor Positive, HER2-Negative, Locally Advanced Or Metastatic Breast Cancer

This is a research study that's in its third and final phase. They're comparing two different treatments for Estrogen Receptor positive HER-2 negative breast cancer. The study wants to see which of the 2 combinations (Giredestrant + Everolimus OR Exemestane+ Everolimus) works better for treating this type of breast cancer that responds to estrogen. They'll be checking how well the cancer responds to treatment, how long people live without the cancer getting worse, and how the patients feel during the treatment. This study is open-label and randomized.

EA1181 (CompassHER2-pCR) Preoperative THP and Postoperative HP in Patients Who Achieve a Pathologic Complete Response Part 1 Component of The CompassHER2 Trials (COMprehensive Use of Pathologic Response ASSessment to Optimize Therapy in HER2-Positive Breast Cancer)

This is a part of a bigger research study called CompassHER2 Trials. The goal of these trials is to find the best ways to treat a specific type of breast cancer called HER2-positive breast cancer. In this part of the study, called EA1181 CompassHER2-pCR, they're focusing on two different phases of treatment for this type of cancer. Part 1: Preoperative THP: Preoperative: This means before surgery. THP: This stands for three different medicines: Taxol (T), Herceptin (H), and Perjeta (P). These medicines are used to treat HER2-positive breast cancer. So, in this part, they're giving these three medicines (Taxol, Herceptin, and Perjeta) to patients before they have surgery to remove the cancer. Part 2: Postoperative HP Postoperative: This means after surgery. In this part, they're giving these two medicines (Herceptin and Perjeta) to patients after they've had surgery to remove the cancer. The specific group of patients they're looking at are those who have a pathologic complete response. This means that after the treatment, there's no evidence of cancer in the tissue that's been removed during surgery. This is a good sign that the treatment is working well.

A Phase 1/2, open-label, dose escalation, and cohort expansion clinical trial to evaluate the safety, tolerability, and pharmacokinetics of ARV-471 alone and in combination with Palbociclib (IBRANCE) in patients with estrogen receptor positive/human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 negative (ER/HER2-) locally advanced or metastatic breast cancer, who have received prior hormonal therapy and chemotherapy in the locally advanced/metastatic setting

This research study is trying out a new treatment called ARV-471 for people who have Estrogen Receptor positive HER-2 negative breast cancer. The patients they're looking at are those who have breast cancer that has grown a lot in the area around the breast or has spread to other parts of the body. These patients have already received treatments like hormonal therapy (to block the hormones that fuel the cancer) and chemotherapy (strong medicines to fight the cancer cells) in the more advanced stages of their disease. The study will be done in two parts: Phase 1: They'll start with a small dose of ARV-471 and see how people react to it. If it seems safe, they'll increase the dose slowly to find the best amount that works well without causing too many side effects. Phase 2: Once they find the right dose from Phase 1, they'll test that dose on a larger group of patients to get a better idea of how well it works. Some patients in this phase will also take ARV-471 with another medicine called Palbociclib (also known as IBRANCE).

MARGetuximab Or Trastuzumab (MARGOT) A phase II study comparing neoadjuvant paclitaxel/margetuximab/pertuzumab to paclitaxel/trastuzumab/pertuzumab in patients with Stage II-III HER2-positive breast cancer

This research study is looking at two different treatments for HER-2 positive breast cancer. The study is all about comparing two groups of patients: Group 1: These patients will receive a combination of three medicines before their main treatment. The medicines are paclitaxel, margetuximab, and pertuzumab. These medicines are meant to shrink the cancer and slow its growth. Group 2: These patients will receive another combination of three medicines before their main treatment. The medicines are paclitaxel, trastuzumab, and pertuzumab. Trastuzumab is another medicine that targets the HER2 protein. This treatment happens before their main treatment, and it's called neoadjuvant treatment. The main goal is to see if the combination of medicines in Group 1 (with margetuximab) works better at treating the cancer compared to the combination in Group 2 (with trastuzumab). The patients in the study have Stage II-III breast cancer, which means the cancer has grown but hasn't spread all over the body.

This is a research study that will test a new treatment for premenopausal women with Hormone Receptor positive HER-2 negative breast cancer. The treatment combines a medicine called TOL2506 with another treatment called endocrine therapy. TOL2506 is a type of medicine that can stop the ovaries from making hormones. The study will see if using TOL2506 along with endocrine therapy can help stop the cancer from growing. The study will be done with premenopausal women who have already been diagnosed with this type of breast cancer.

Estrogen Receptor positive HER-2 negative

It is a type of breast cancer where cancer cells have estrogen receptors and are stimulated by the hormone estrogen to grow. These cells also have very little of the protein HER-2. This type of cancer tends to respond very well to therapy, since it tends to grow slowly.

Endocrine therapy

Endocrine therapy is a type of treatment for certain hormone-related conditions, like some types of breast or prostate cancer. It works by either blocking the body's production of hormones or interfering with how hormones attach to their respective receptors on cells. In the context of cancer, it's often used to prevent cancer cells from getting the hormones they need to grow, helping to slow down or stop the cancer's progression.

A randomized, double-blind, phase 3 study of tucatinib or placebo in combination with trastuzumab and pertuzumab as maintenance therapy for metastatic HER2 breast cancer (HER2CLIMB-05)

Breast cancer is a disease where cells in the breast grow too much and can spread to other parts of the body. There are different kinds of breast cancer. One kind is called HER-2 positive breast cancer. HER-2 positive breast cancers tend to grow and spread faster than other kinds, but they also respond well to certain medicines. There's a research study called HER2CLIMB-05 that wants to figure out if a medicine called tucatinib, when used together with other medicines called trastuzumab and pertuzumab, can help people with HER-2 positive breast cancer that has spread to other parts of the body. This study is like a big experiment where some people will get tucatinib along with the other medicines, and some will get a placebo along with the other medicines. The researchers won't know who is getting which medicine, and the people in the study won't know either. The goal of this study is to find out if using tucatinib can make the situation better for people with HER-2 positive breast cancer that has spread.

This research study is comparing two different treatments for Estrogen Receptor positive HER-2 negative breast cancer. The participants in this study either have cancer that has spread quite a bit to nearby areas (locally advanced) or has spread to other parts of the body (metastatic). These are more advanced stages of cancer. The study is testing two different treatments: One treatment is a medicine called LY3484356. This is the medicine that's being tested in the study. The other treatment is a choice made by the doctors involved in the study. They will choose an endocrine therapy for the patients. The study is open-label and randomized.

A Randomized, Multicenter, Placebo-controlled, Phase 3 study to Evaluate the Efficacy and Safety of HER2/neu Peptide GLSI-100 (GP2 + GM-CSF) in HER2/neu Positive Subjects with Residual Disease or High-Risk PCR after both Neoadjuvant and Postoperative Adjuvant Trastuzumab-based Therapy (FLAMINGO-01)

This research study is focused on a specific protein called HER2/neu that is found in some breast cancers. They want to test a new treatment called GLSI-100, which is made from a combination of two things: a peptide called GP2 and a protein called GM-CSF. They are looking at people who have breast cancer with this HER2/neu protein and have finished some initial treatments. These treatments include Trastuzumab, which is a kind of medicine used to target the HER2/neu protein. The people in this study either have a small amount of leftover cancer (called residual disease) or are at high risk for the cancer coming back. This might be because they still have some cancer-related genetic material (PCR) even after their treatments. The study wants to see if GLSI-100 can help people who still have some cancer left or are at high risk of the cancer returning, even after they've had treatments like Trastuzumab. They'll be checking how well the treatment works and whether it's safe.

This is a research study that's trying out a new kind of medicine for the first time. The medicine is called RLY-2608, and it's meant to target a specific protein called PI3Kα. This protein is found in some tumors (abnormal growths) in the body. The study is being done with two groups of people: The first group has advanced tumors. These people will be given only the new medicine, RLY-2608, to see how well it works on its own. The second group has a specific type of advanced breast cancer. They will receive a combination of the new medicine, RLY-2608, and another treatment called Fulvestrant. Fulvestrant is a medicine used to treat breast cancer. The goal of this study is to find out if RLY-2608 is safe to use in people and whether it can help treat advanced tumors and breast cancer. They'll be looking at how well the medicine works in shrinking the tumors, how the patients' bodies respond, and how the patients feel during the treatment.

In this research study, they want to see if a new medicine called sacituzumab govitecan can help people with metastatic triple-negative breast cancer. They're looking at people whose cancer cells don't have something called PD-L1. PD-L1 is like a guard protein on special cells that help our body's defense system work. When PD-L1 is blocked, it's like taking off the brakes from our defense system, and it helps our immune cells fight cancer better. So, they're testing this new medicine to see if it can help people with this kind of breast cancer that doesn't have PD-L1. The medicine is a mix of something called an antibody and a drug.

It's a new kind of medicine that fights against cancer. The second medicine is called palbociclib. It's a medicine that helps stop the cancer from growing. The scientists want to find out if these two medicines, when used together, are safe and if they work well against this type of breast cancer. They will give these medicines to adults who have advanced or metastatic breast cancer, which means the cancer has spread. The study wants to see if the two medicines can be given safely together and how much of each medicine people can take without getting too sick. They also want to see if the medicines can help shrink the cancer and make people feel better.

An open-label, single-arm, Phase 1b/2 study to investigate the safety, efficacy and pharmacokinetics of LS301-IT in female patients undergoing partial mastectomy and sentinel lymph node biopsy (SLNB) for ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) or Stage I-II primary invasive breast cancer

This research study is designed to investigate the safety, efficacy, and pharmacokinetics of LS301-IT, a new drug to help surgeons visualize sentinel lymph nodes during breast cancer surgery. LS301-IT is a fluorescent imaging agent that is injected intravenously before surgery. The agent binds to sentinel lymph nodes, which are the first lymph nodes to drain from the tumor. During surgery, the surgeon uses a special camera to identify the sentinel lymph nodes, which helps them to remove them more accurately. The study is being conducted in two phases: Phase 1b will enroll a small number of patients to determine the safe dose of LS301-IT, and Phase 2 will enroll a larger number of patients to evaluate the efficacy of the drug in helping surgeons to visualize sentinel lymph nodes.
