  Purpose

The purpose of this clinical research study is to learn if BMS-247550 added to the approved therapy of capecitabine (Xeloda) provides measurable clinical benefits over capecitabine alone in women with metastatic breast cancer. Patients should have previously received an anthracycline and a taxane. The safety of this treatment will also be studied.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Overall Survival (OS) [ Time Frame: from date of randomization until death ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Progression-Free Survival (PFS) [ Time Frame: every 6 weeks (± 3 days) from randomization while on treatment until documented progression ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Response Rate (RR) [ Time Frame: every 6 weeks (± 3 days) from randomization while on treatment until documented progression ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Duration of Response [ Time Frame: every 6 weeks (± 3 days) from randomization while on treatment until documented progression ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Time to Response [ Time Frame: every 6 weeks (± 3 days) from randomization while on treatment until documented progression ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Treatment-Related Safety Summary [ Time Frame: safety was assessed on a continual basis every cycle while on-treatment and every 4 weeks post treatment until toxicities resolved or were deemed irreversible. ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • Symptom Assessment Score Changes From Baseline for Functional Assessment of Cancer Therapy-Breast Symptom Index (FBSI) [ Time Frame: Baseline and prior to each 21-day cycle of treatment, and at first posttreatment follow-up assessment ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
