In this phase II trial we attempt to improve upon the efficacy of the trastuzumab/vinorelbine combination by adding weekly docetaxel. When administered on a weekly schedule, docetaxel is well tolerated with minimal myelosuppression, so that it is likely that fully efficacious doses of all three drugs can be administered
