  Purpose

The purpose of this study is to identify new treatment regimens with better response rates and to find out if the combination of cisplatin and sorafenib followed by paclitaxel and sorafenib can shrink the size of your breast tumor and allow you to preserve your breast. Sorafenib is a newer drug that targets blood vessel formation and may help the chemotherapy work better. Additionally, by receiving chemotherapy before surgery, we will be able to determine if your cancer is responsive to chemotherapy.

  Eligibility

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older
Genders Eligible for Study:   Both
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Histologically or cytologically confirmed invasive breast carcinoma
  • Early stage breast cancer (Stage I (tumor size > 1cm), II and IIIA)
  • Invasive breast cancer must be ER-negative, PR-negative, Her2-negative. If breast cancer is Her2 2+ by IHC, then FISH must be negative for Her2 gene amplification
  • No evidence of disease outside the breast or chest wall, except ipsilateral axillary lymph nodes
  • Patients must have measurable disease as defined by palpable lesion with both diameters >1cm measurable with caliper and/or a positive mammogram or ultrasound with at least one dimension >1cm. Bilateral mammogram and clip placement is required for study entry. Baseline measurements of the indicator lesions must be recorded on the Patient Registration Form. To be valid for baseline, the measurements must have been made within the 14 days (4-6 weeks for x-rays and scans) immediately preceding patient's entry in study.
  • ECOG performance status 0 to 1 within 14 days of study entry
  • Normal (greater than 50%) left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) by MUGA scan or echocardiography
  • Signed informed consent
  • Adequate organ function within 2 weeks of study entry:

    • Absolute neutrophil count >1500/mm3, Hgb >9.0 g/dl and platelet count >100,000/mm3
    • Total bilirubin < upper limit of normal
    • Creatinine < 1.5 mg/dL or calculated CrCL >50mL/min using the Cockroft Gault equation
    • SGOT(AST) or SGPT(ALT) and Alkaline Phosphatase must be within the range allowing for eligibility
  • Patients must be > 18 years
  • INR < 1.5 or a PT/PTT within normal limits. Patients receiving anti-coagulation treatment with an agent such as warfarin or heparin may be allowed to participate. For patients on warfarin, the INR should be measured prior to initiation of sorafenib and monitored at least weekly, or as defined by the local standard of care, until INR is stable.
  • Women of childbearing potential must have a negative serum pregnancy test performed within 7 days prior to the start of treatment
  • Women of childbearing potential and men must agree to use adequate contraception (barrier method of birth control) prior to study entry and for the duration of study participation.
  • Patients with history of breast cancer greater than 5 years from initial diagnosis and are disease free are eligible for the study. Patients with history of DCIS are eligible if there were treated with surgery alone.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Prior chemotherapy, hormonal therapy, biologic therapy, investigational agent, targeted therapy or radiation therapy for current breast cancer. .
  • Medical, psychological or surgical condition which the investigator feels might compromise study participation.
  • History of previous or current malignancy at other sites with the exception of adequately treated carcinoma in-situ of the cervix or basal or squamous cell carcinoma of the skin. Patients with a history of other malignancies, who remain disease free for greater than five years are eligible.
  • Evidence of any grade sensory and/or peripheral neuropathy.
  • Serious,uncontrolled, concurrent infection(s).
  • Major surgery within 4 weeks of the start of study treatment, without complete recovery.
  • Pregnant or lactating women are not eligible. Women or men of childbearing potential not using a reliable and appropriate contraceptive method are not eligible. (Postmenopausal woman must have been amenorrheic for at least 12 months to be considered of non-childbearing potential).
  • Use of St. John's Wort or rifampin (rifampicin).
  • Known or suspected allergy to sorafenib or any agent given in the course of this trial.
  • Any condition that impairs patient's ability to swallow whole pills.
  • Any malabsorption problem.
  • Evidence or history of bleeding diathesis or coagulopathy
  • Known human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection or chronic Hepatitis B or C.
  • Active clinically serious infection > CTCAE Grade 2.
  • Thrombolic or embolic events such as a cerebrovascular accident including transient ischemic attacks within the past 6 months.
  • Pulmonary hemorrhage/bleeding event > CTCAE Grade 2 within 4 weeks of first dose of study drug.
  • Any other hemorrhage/bleeding event > CTCAE Grade 3 within 4 weeks of first dose of study drug.
  • Cardiac disease: Congestive heart failure > class II NYHA. Patients must not have unstable angina (anginal symptoms at rest) or new onset angina (began within the last 3 months) or myocardial infarction within the past 6 months.
  • Known brain metastasis. Patients with neurological symptoms must undergo a CT scan/MRI of the brain to exclude brain metastasis.
  • Cardiac ventricular arrhythmias requiring anti-arrhythmic therapy.
  • Uncontrolled hypertension defined as systolic blood pressure > 150 mmHg or diastolic pressure > 90 mmHg, despite optimal medical management.
