RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die. Combining chemotherapy with autologous bone marrow transplantation or peripheral stem cell transplantation may allow the doctor to give higher doses of chemotherapy drugs and kill more tumor cells.
PURPOSE: Randomized phase III trial to compare bone marrow transplantation with peripheral stem cell transplantation following carboplatin in treating patients with breast cancer.
|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Breast Cancer||Procedure: autologous bone marrow transplantation Procedure: peripheral blood stem cell transplantation||Phase 3|
OBJECTIVES: I. Compare engraftment rates using G-CSF primed autologous bone marrow vs PBCP as hematopoietic support following high dose CTCb for patients with poor prognosis breast cancer. II. Compare the complications of these two methods of hematopoietic progenitor cell collections. III. Compare Stage IV patients with bone or bone marrow involvement (assigned to PBPC collections) with Stage IV patients randomized to PBPC collections relative to the number of leukaphereses needed to collect the required number of progenitor cells as well as assess engraftment rates between these two groups. IV. Assess the response to high dose CTCb in this group of patients.
OUTLINE: All patients will receive G-CSF priming therapy for 5 consecutive days. Patients will then be randomized into two treatment arms: Arm 1 consists of autologous PBPC collection Arm 2 consists of autologous bone marrow collection Within 2 weeks after progenitor cell collection, all patients will receive high dose CTCb therapy by continuous infusion for 5 days, followed by autologous hematopoietic progenitor cell infusion at least three days later. G-CSF will also be given after infusion until ANC count is over 5,000 or over 1,000 for 3 consecutive days.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: 66 patients will be accrued at a rate of 24 per year.
