Placebo-Controlled Therapeutic Trial for the Prevention of Lymphedema in Patients At High Risk After Undergoing Axillary Lymph Node Dissection
This randomized clinical trial studies ketoprofen in preventing lymphedema in patients at high risk after undergoing axillary lymph node dissection. Ketoprofen may prevent lymphedema in patients undergoing axillary lymph node dissection.

I. To evaluate the efficacy of ketoprofen in improving chronic lymphedema while further elucidating the role of inflammatory and lymph angiogenic processes in the pathogenesis of this disease.
OUTLINE: Patients are randomized to 1 of 2 treatment arms.
ARM I: Patients receive ketoprofen orally (PO) thrice daily (TID) for up to 1 year in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
ARM II: Patients receive placebo PO TID for up to 1 year in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
After completion of study treatment, patients are followed up for 5 years.
