Further study details as provided by University of Kansas Medical Center:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Proliferation marker (Ki-67) in tissue specimens comparing baseline and post-drug administration specimens.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Baseline and post-administration assessments of MAP kinase, pERK1 and 2, activated pAKT, change in apotosis indicators, and angiogenesis associated proteins, and Her-2/neu.

Estimated Enrollment: 100
Study Start Date: June 2003
Estimated Study Completion Date: December 2005
Detailed Description:
A double blind randomized study of celecoxib 400 mg bid versus placebo in newly diagnosed breast cancer. Assessment of modulation of tissue markers (Ki-67, ER, VEGF, PR, etc.) and serum markers (estradiol, estrone, SHBG, etc.).

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older   (Adult, Senior)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   Female
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  • women with a recent diagnosis of T1 or T2 non-invasive breast cancer by large core needle or excisional biopsy
  • confirmation that tissue was processed in methods acceptable to protocol and sufficient tissue remains post-diagnostic analyses to perform research assessments
  • reexcision planned within 10 days to 6 weeks from study start
  • if on prevention tamoxifen or raloxifene, must have begun administration at least six weeks prior to initial biopsy and continue through reexcision

Exclusion Criteria:

  • no hormone replacement therapy within the 90 days prior to biopsy
  • if on prevention tamoxifen or raloxifene, must have begun administration at least six weeks prior to initial biopsy and continue through reexcision
  • no evidence of metastatic malignancy of any kind
  • no history of asthma, allergy ASA, NSAIDS, celecoxib or other COX-2 inhibitors for a chronic non-oncological condition with the excision of low dose ASA (160 mg daily) during 4 weeks prior to biopsy and for the duration of the study.
  • no celecoxib or rofecoxib use within one month of biopsy
  • no history of gastrointestinal ulcer or ulcerative colitis requiring treatment
  • no current anticoagulants
  • no neoadjuvant antihormone or chemotherapy as treatment following biopsy prior to study entry or concurrently with participation on study
  • no aromatase inhibitor in the six months prior to participation
  • no concomitant lithium
  • no known significant bleeding disorder
