  • Avelumab With Binimetinib, Utomilumab, or Anti-OX40 Antibody PF-04518600 in Treating Triple Negative Breast Cancer

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    This phase II trial studies how well avelumab in combination with binimetinib, utomilumab, or anti-OX40 antibody PF-04518600 works in treating patients with triple negative breast cancer that is stage IV or is not able to be removed by surgery (unresectable) and has come back (recurrent). Immunotherapy with checkpoint inhibitors like avelumab require activation of the patients immune system. This trial includes a two week induction or lead-in of medications that can stimulate the immune system. It is our hope that this induction will improve the response to immunotherapy with avelumab. Patients on this trial will receive two weeks of treatment with one of three treatments to stimulate the bodies immune system, including the monoclonal antibodies, utomilumab, and the anti-OX40 antibody PF-04518600 which may help the body's immune system attack the cancer, and could interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. The third medication is called binimetinib , which may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth, and may help activate the immune system. It is not yet known whether giving avelumab in combination with binimetinib, utomilumab, or anti-OX40 antibody PF-04518600 will work better in treating patients with triple negative breast cancer

  • Diarrhea Prophylaxis in Patients With HER2+ Breast Cancer Treated With Trastuzumab and Neratinib, Followed by Neratinib Monotherapy

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    This is a study to evaluate the toxicity profile of neratinib in combination with trastuzumab in patients with early stage breast cancer with the use of anti-diarrheal prophylaxis. The anti-diarrheal medications being tested in this trial are loperamide and crofelemer. Crofelemer is an anti-diarrheal, enteric-coated drug product for oral administration. It is the only botanical drug currently approved by the FDA for oral administration and is approved for the treatment of diarrhea associated with HAART. Crofelemer has a novel mechanism of action, acting directly and simultaneously on 2 distinct intestinal luminal chloride channels. It is an inhibitor of both the cyclic adenosine monophosphate (cAMP)-stimulated cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) chloride ion (Cl-) channel found on the apical membranes, and the calcium-activated Cl- channels (CaCC) at the luminal membrane of enterocytes. The CFTR Cl-channel and CaCC regulate Cl and fluid secretion by intestinal epithelial cells. Crofelemer acts by blocking Cl- secretion and accompanying high volume water loss in diarrhea, normalizing the flow of Cl- and water in the GI tract.

  • Endocrine Response in Women With Invasive Lobular Breast Cancer

    open to eligible females

    RATIONALE: Currently, adjuvant endocrine therapy often follows a "one-size-fits- all" approach, with most premenopausal women receiving tamoxifen, and most postmenopausal receiving aromatase inhibitor therapy. In current clinical practice, patients with invasive lobular carcinoma are treated no differently than patients with invasive ductal carcinoma based on the void of information specific to patients with this tumor type. Identification of a biological signal of tamoxifen and/or AI-resistance and/or fulvestrant-sensitivity in ILC patients would have dramatic implications for the future management of this breast cancer subtype.

    PURPOSE: To study whether fulvestrant is more effective than anastrozole or tamoxifen in reducing Ki67 in ILC and whether that Ki67 reduction will correlate with alterations in expression of ER and ER-regulated genes. Differential Ki67 effect in this study will serve as a surrogate for outcome of ILC patients on endocrine therapy. Primary Objective: To determine the change from baseline to post-treatment Ki67 values in ER-positive, HER2-negative ILC tissue derived from postmenopausal women awaiting definitive surgery or further neoadjuvant treatment who are randomized to 21-24 days of neoadjuvant endocrine treatments with fulvestrant (two 250 mg IM injections given on day 1), anastrozole (1mg given orally daily), or tamoxifen (20mg given orally daily).

  • Olaparib In Metastatic Breast Cancer

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    This research study is for patients with metastatic breast cancer. - Metastatic means that the cancer has spread beyond the breast. In addition, through genetic testing of the blood or tumor, an altered gene has been found that suggests the tumor may not be able to repair its genetic material (DNA) when it becomes damaged. - This aspect of the cancer may cause it to be more sensitive - that is, more effectively killed by certain types of drugs such as the study agent being evaluated in this trial, Olaparib. - Olaparib is a type of drug known as a PARP inhibitor. Some types of breast cancer and ovarian cancer share some basic features that make them sensitive to similar treatments. Information from those other research studies suggests that this drug may help to treat metastatic breast cancer. - This study will evaluate whether olaparib is effective in breast cancer patients whose tumor has a mutation in one of the other genes that function with BRCA1 and BRCA2 to repair damaged DNA .This mutation may have been inherited from a parent, or may have developed only in the tumor. - This study will also evaluate whether olaparib is effective in breast cancer patients whose tumor has a mutation in BRCA1 or BRCA2 that was acquired by the tumor, but not inherited.

  • Olaparib With or Without Atezolizumab in Treating Patients With Locally Advanced Unresectable or Metastatic Non-HER2-Positive Breast Cancer

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    This randomized phase II trial studies how well olaparib with or without atezolizumab work in treating patients with non-HER2-positive breast cancer that has spread from its original site of growth to nearby tissues or lymph nodes and is not amenable to surgical resection (locally advanced unresectable) or has spread to other places in the body (metastatic). Olaparib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for cell growth. Immunotherapy with monoclonal antibodies, such as atezolizumab, may help the body's immune system attack the tumor, and may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. It is not known whether giving olaparib with or without atezolizumab will work better in patients with non-HER2-positive breast cancer.

  • Paclitaxel, Trastuzumab, and Pertuzumab With or Without Atezolizumab in Treating Patients With Metastatic Breast Cancer

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    This randomized phase III trial studies how well paclitaxel, trastuzumab, and pertuzumab with or without atezolizumab works in treating patients with breast cancer that has spread to other parts of the body (metastatic). Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as paclitaxel, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. Trastuzumab is a form of "targeted therapy" because it works by attaching itself to specific molecules (receptors) on the surface of cancer cells, known as HER2 receptors. When trastuzumab attaches to HER2 receptors, the signals that tell the cells to grow are blocked and the cancer cell may be marked for destruction by the body's immune system. Monoclonal antibodies, such as pertuzumab, may interfere with the ability of cancer cells to grow and spread. Immunotherapy with monoclonal antibodies, such as atezolizumab, may induce changes in body's immune system and may interfere with the ability of tumor cells to grow and spread. It is not yet known whether giving paclitaxel, trastuzumab, and pertuzumab with or without atezolizumab may kill more tumor cells.

  • Pembrolizumab With Carboplatin Compared to Carboplatin Alone in Breast Cancer Patients With Chest Wall Disease

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    This is a phase II multicenter study including breast cancer patients with chest wall disease that is hormone resistant (estrogen receptor (ER) positive/progesterone receptor (PR) positive/human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2) negative breast cancer with progressive disease on 2 prior lines of hormonal therapy) or triple negative (ER negative/PR negative/HER2 negative, TNBC). Eighty-four patients will be enrolled at Translational Breast Cancer Research Consortium (TBCRC) sites and will be randomized 2:1 to receive treatment with pembrolizumab and carboplatin (n=56, Arm A) or carboplatin alone (n=28, Arm B) until documented disease progression. Patients randomized to Arm B may cross-over following progression to pembrolizumab with or without carboplatin at investigator's discretion (Arm Bx). Patients may have received any number of prior lines of chemotherapy. Patients in Arm A will be treated with pembrolizumab 200 mg IV and carboplatin area under curve (AUC) 5 IV every 3 weeks for at least 6 cycles followed by maintenance pembrolizumab 200 mg IV every 3 weeks if stable or responding disease. Patients in Arm B will be treated with carboplatin AUC 5 IV every 3 weeks until progression, whereupon they may cross-over to pembrolizumab 200 mg IV every 3 weeks with or without carboplatin at investigator's discretion (Arm Bx). An interim analysis for futility will be performed after 18 patients are enrolled into Arm B to allow early stopping of that trial arm for lack of efficacy. The primary endpoint is to compare disease control rates at 18 weeks of treatment. Secondary endpoints include progression free survival, toxicity, and overall response rate.

    open to eligible females ages 18-79

    The main purpose of this study is to determine if taking the study drug, conjugated estrogens/bazedoxifene (Duavee®) causes any changes in the proliferation markers within the breast tissue of the study subjects. The study drug is approved by the US Food and Drug Administration in healthy postmenopausal women to treat certain symptoms of menopause such as hot flashes. Since it is not approved in women with DCIS, its use in this study is experimental. This study will also look at whether taking the study drug causes any significant or undesirable side effects in women with DCIS. The researchers hope that this study will help them determine if taking the study drug is safe in women taking DCIS and if it can possibly reduce the risk of developing breast cancer in women with DCIS.

  • The WISDOM Study (wisdomstudy.org)

    “What is the best mammogram screening schedule for women? Clinical experts disagree. Help us find out!”

    open to eligible females ages 40-74

    Most physicians still use a one-size-fits-all approach to breast screening in which all women, regardless of their personal history, family history or genetics (except BRCA carriers) are recommended to have annual mammograms starting at age 40. Mammograms benefit women by detecting cancers early when they are easier to treat, but they are not perfect. Recent news stories have discussed some of the potential harms: large numbers of positive results that cause stressful recalls for additional mammograms and biopsies. With the current screening approach, half of the women who undergo annual screening for ten years will have at least one false positive biopsy. Potentially more important are cancer diagnoses for growths that might never come to clinical attention if left alone (called "overdiagnosis"). This can lead to unnecessary treatment. Even more concerning is evidence that up to 20% of breast cancers detected today may fall into the category of "overdiagnosis." This proposal compares annual screening with a risk-based breast cancer screening schedule, based upon each woman's personal risk of breast cancer. The investigators have designed the study to be inclusive of all, so that even women who might be nervous about being randomly assigned to receive a particular type of care (a procedure that is typical in clinical studies) will still be able to participate by choosing the type of care they receive. For participants in the risk-based screening arm, each woman will receive a personal risk assessment that includes her family and medical history, breast density measurement and tests for genes (mutations and variations) linked to the development of breast cancer. Women who have the highest personal risk of developing breast cancer will receive more frequent screening, while women with a lower personal risk would receive less frequent screening. No woman will be screened less than is recommended by the USPSTF breast cancer screening guidelines. If this study is successful, women will gain a realistic understanding of their personal risk of breast cancer as well as strategies to reduce their risk, and fewer women will suffer from the anxiety of false positive mammograms and unnecessary biopsies. The investigators believe this study has the potential to transform breast cancer screening in America.

  • This Study in Patients With Different Types of Cancer (Solid Tumours) Aims to Find a Safe Dose of Xentuzumab in Combination With Abemaciclib With or Without Hormonal Therapies. The Study Also Tests How Effective These Medicines Are in Patients With Lung and Breast Cancer.

    open to eligible people ages 18 years and up

    For each dose finding cohorts (A, B, C and D): The primary objective of each dose finding cohort is to determine the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) / recommended phase II dose (RP2D) of xentuzumab in combination with abemaciclib with or without hormonal therapy (letrozole, anastrozole, fulvestrant). Dose limiting toxicities (DLT) will be assessed during the first treatment cycle to assess the MTD/RP2D. In case that no MTD is reached a RP2D dose will be determined taking into account safety data and other available information. This will be agreed with the Steering Committee. For each expansion cohorts (E, F, D1 and D2): The objectives of the expansion cohorts are to assess the anti-tumour activity of xentuzumab in combination with abemaciclib in patients with non-small cell lung cancer (cohort E). Tentatively a cohort F may be opened to assess the anti-tumour activity of the triplet combination xentuzumab / abemaciclib and fulvestrant in a single-arm expansion group of patients with locally advanced / metastatic hormone receptor positive (HR+) breast cancer who have progressed following prior aromatase inhibitor therapy and prior CDK4/6 inhibitor treatment. Cohort F will only be opened if indicated by emerging data from ongoing clinical trials. The primary objective of cohorts D1 and D2 is to assess the anti-tumour activity of the triplet combination xentuzumab, abemaciclib and fulvestrant in patients with locally advanced / metastatic HR+ breast cancer who have progressed on prior endocrine therapy.
