RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing. 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 chemotherapy with monoclonal antibody therapy may kill more tumor cells.
PURPOSE: Phase I/II trial to study the effectiveness of liposomal doxorubicin and trastuzumab in treating women who have advanced breast cancer.
|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Breast Cancer||Biological: trastuzumab Drug: pegylated liposomal doxorubicin hydrochloride||Phase 1 Phase 2|
- Determine the toxicity, including cardiac toxicity, of doxorubicin HCl liposome and trastuzumab (Herceptin) in women with advanced HER-2/neu-overexpressing breast cancer.
- Determine the efficacy of this regimen in these patients.
OUTLINE: Patients receive doxorubicin HCl liposome IV over 1 hour on day 1, followed by trastuzumab (Herceptin) IV over 30-90 minutes on days 1, 8, and 15. Courses repeat every 21 days in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
Patients are followed every 3 months.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 40 patients will be accrued for this study.
