  • safety [ Time Frame: 1 year ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    of pre-operative ipilimumab administration and intratumoral cryoablation administered either alone or in combination in patients with early stage breast cancer. Safety will be evaluated for all treated subjects using National Cancer Institute (NCI) Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events v4.0 (CTCAE).
  • tolerability [ Time Frame: 1 year ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    If 5 of the 6 patients in study arm A and 5 of the 6 patients in study arm B are without an AE necessitating delay in surgery, we will enroll 6 additional patients into study arm C. If 5 or 6 of these 6 patients in study arm C are without an AE necessitating delay in surgery, the regimen will be considered safe/tolerable for further study.

Efficacy [ Time Frame: 1 year ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
exploratory correlative studies will be performed to evaluate anti-tumor and immunological response pre- and post-treatment in individuals. Comparisons with other study participants will also be conducted. Breast cancer tissue specimens, axillary lymph nodes specimens where available, and peripheral blood samples will be studied.

Pre-Operative, Single-Dose Ipilimumab and/or Cryoablation in Early Stage/Resectable Breast Cancer
A Pilot Study of Pre-Operative, Single-Dose Ipilimumab and/or Cryoablation in Early Stage/Resectable Breast Cancer

This study is being done to evaluate the safety of two strategies called "cryoablation" and "immune therapy" in women with curable early stage breast cancer. "Cryoablation" is a procedure performed by an expert doctor called a radiologist. The radiologist uses (magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to insert a needle directly into a cancer. Very cold temperatures are then applied through the needle to kill the cancer cells. Some of the killed cancer cells will be broken into pieces that can be recognized by a person's immune system.

The "immune therapy" in this study is a drug called ipilimumab. Normally the immune system makes "T cells" that can kill cancer cells when turned on. The cancer-killing T cell activity is controlled by a molecule called CTLA4. Ipilimumab works by turning off CTLA4. Turning off CTLA4 allows the cancer-fighting T cells to remain active Ipilimumab is an antibody drug has been made in a laboratory for patient use and was recently approved by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the treatment of patients with a type of skin cancer called melanoma. An antibody is a normal protein that the immune system uses to find and kill germs like bacteria and viruses. This study is being done because the researchers believe that when cryoablation is combined with immune therapy, a person's immune system can be trained to recognize that person's cancer. This may prevent that cancer from coming back in the future. In other words, it is hoped that by adding cryoablation with ipilimumab before the mastectomy, the body will remain cancer free long after the mastectomy is performed. The first step in determining whether cryoablation and immune therapy can be used to cure breast cancer is to evaluate the safety of each strategy alone and then in combination in a small group of patients.

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Women age 18 years or older
  • Confirmed histologic diagnosis of invasive adenocarcinoma of the breast, including MSKCC pathology confirmation
  • ER, PR and HER2 testing in progress(i.e. on outside or MSKCC biopsy report)
  • HER2-positive pathology is permitted

  • Any nodal status
  • Multifocal and multicentric disease is permitted.
  • Synchronous bilateral invasive breast cancer is permitted
  • No indication of distant metastases
  • Total mastectomy planned
  • Tumor amenable to cryoablation as determined by radiologist
  • ECOG performance status score of 0 or 1

Screening laboratory values must meet the following criteria:

  • White blood cells (WBCs) ≥ 2000/μL
  • Absolute neutrophil count (ANC) ≥ 1500/μL
  • Platelets ≥ 100 x 103/μL
  • Hemoglobin ≥ 11.0 g/dL

  • Patients with positive results that do not indicate true active or chronic infection may enroll after discussion and consensus agreement by the treating physician and principal investigator.
  • Women of childbearing potential (WOCBP) must be using an acceptable method of contraception to avoid pregnancy throughout the study and for at least 3 months after the last dose of ipilimumab in such a manner that the risk of pregnancy is minimized. See below for the definition of WOCBP.

  • Definition of WOCBP
  • Women of childbearing potential include any female who has experienced menarche and who has not undergone successful surgical sterilization (hysterectomy, bilateral tubal ligation, or bilateral oophorectomy) or is not postmenopausal. Post menopause is defined as:
  • Amenorrhea ≥ 12 consecutive months without another cause and a documented serum follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) level >35 mIU/mL
  • Women with irregular menstrual periods and a documented FSH level > 35 mIU/mL
  • Women on hormone replacement therapy (HRT) Women who are using oral contraceptives, other hormonal contraceptives (vaginal products, skin patches, or implanted or injectable products), or mechanical products such as an intrauterine device or barrier methods (diaphragm, condoms, spermicides) to prevent pregnancy, or are practicing abstinence or where their partner is sterile (e.g., vasectomy) should be considered to be of childbearing potential.

Exclusion Criteria:
