Primary Outcome Measures:
  • To determine the clinical and pathologic response rates, particularly the pCR/near pCR rate, observed following treatment with q3week carboplatin, weekly Abraxane and weekly trastuzumab in resectable and unresectable LABC; [ Time Frame: 1 year ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Assess toxicities of regimen during treatment, including grade >2 neurotoxicity the incidence of subclinical and clinical cardiac toxicity [ Time Frame: 1 year ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Detailed Description:

Our goal is to develop an induction chemotherapy regimen that will have a pCR rate above 50% in HER2+ patients without exposing patients to the toxicity of an anthracycline-based regimen. A minimum of 60 evaluable patients will be accrued to the study. We are assuming an observed pCR (or near pCR) rate of 70%. Assuming no more than 10% of patients will be inevaluable for the primary endpoint (pCR), we will have at least 54 evaluable patients. With this number, we will have 90% power, with a 1-sided alpha error of 0.05, to demonstrate a pCR rate exceeding 50% for our novel regimen.
