Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Progression-free survival [ Time Frame: Occurring post randomization through end of study period (9 mos. after the last participant is randomized) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Defined as the time from randomization to documented disease progression, as determined by the investigator's assessment according to RECIST, or death from any cause, whichever occurs first.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Objective response [ Time Frame: Occurring post randomization through end of study period (9 mos. after the last participant is randomized) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Objective response as determined by the investigator according to RECIST for patients with measurable disease at baseline.

  • Clinical benefit rate [ Time Frame: Occurring post randomization through end of study period (9 mos. after the last participant is randomized) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Clinical response rate includes patients with objective response and stable disease lasting at least 6 months.

Criteria

Inclusion Criteria

  • Histologically or cytologically confirmed adenocarcinoma of the breast that is either locally recurrent or metastatic. Locally recurrent disease must not be amenable to surgical resection or radiation with curative intent
  • Either have not received chemotherapy or may have had one prior non-taxane chemotherapy regimen for metastatic disease (there are no restrictions on prior hormonal therapy)
  • Prior use of bevacizumab is allowed provided that it was not administered in combination with a taxane
  • ECOG performance status 0-1
  • Adequate bone marrow reserve as indicated by:

    • ANC > 1500/uL (without use of growth factors within 7 days)
    • Platelet count > 100,000 (without transfusion in prior 7 days)
    • Hemoglobin > 9.0 g/dL

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Women who are pregnant or breast feeding
  • Locally recurrent disease amenable to resection with curative intent
  • HER-2-positive breast cancer
  • Active central nervous system (CNS) metastatic disease including those patients receiving radiotherapy and/or steroid treatment (within the last 3 months)
  • Prior adjuvant or neoadjuvant taxane chemotherapy within 12 months prior of first relapse
  • Investigational therapy within 4 weeks of first study drug administration
  • Prior radiation, cytotoxic, or hormonal therapy within 2 weeks of first study drug administration
  • Therapeutic anti-coagulation or regular use of anti-platelet therapy within 2 weeks prior to first study drug administration (low dose anti-coagulant therapy to maintain patency of a vascular access device is allowed)
  • Grade ≥ 2 neuropathy
  • Uncontrolled clinically significant atrial or ventricular arrhythmias (unless pacemaker in place)
  • Severe conduction disturbance including clinically significant QTC prolongation > 450 ms (unless pacemaker in place)
  • Active or chronically recurrent bleeding (e.g., active peptic ulcer disease)
  • Clinically relevant active infection
  • Known positive serology for human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)
