RATIONALE: Celecoxib may be effective in preventing the further development of cancer. Monoclonal antibodies such as trastuzumab can locate tumor cells and either kill them or deliver tumor-killing substances to them without harming normal cells. Combining trastuzumab with celecoxib may kill more tumor cells.
PURPOSE: Phase II trial to study the effectiveness of combining celecoxib and trastuzumab in treating women who have metastatic breast cancer that has not responded to previous trastuzumab.
|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Breast Cancer||Biological: trastuzumab Drug: celecoxib||Phase 2|
- Determine the efficacy of celecoxib and trastuzumab (Herceptin) in women with HER2/neu-overexpressing metastatic breast cancer that is refractory to prior trastuzumab.
- Determine the safety of celecoxib in these patients.
OUTLINE: At least 3 weeks after the last dose of prior chemotherapy, patients receive oral celecoxib twice daily. Patients continue or restart trastuzumab (Herceptin) IV over 30-90 minutes weekly or every 3 weeks. Treatment continues in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 12-37 patients will be accrued for this study within approximately 9 months.
