|Brief Title ICMJE||Ceramide Cream in Treating Women With Cutaneous Breast Cancer|
|Official Title ICMJE||A Phase II Study Of Topical Ceramide Lipids As Treatment For Cutaneous Breast Cancer|
RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die.
PURPOSE: Phase II trial to study the effectiveness of ceramide cream in treating women who have cutaneous breast cancer.
OBJECTIVES: I. Determine the objective response rate in women with cutaneous breast cancer treated with topical ceramide cream. II. Determine the time to progression in patients treated with this regimen. III. Determine the toxicity of this regimen in these patients. IV. Assess the quality of life of these patients treated with this regimen.
OUTLINE: Topical ceramide cream is applied to all cutaneous lesions twice daily. Courses repeat every 28 days in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity. Quality of life is assessed at baseline and then at 1 and 3 months. Patients are followed every 3 months for 1 year and then every 6 months for 4 years.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 22 patients will be accrued for this study within 27 months.
