Phase 2 Study of AMG 386 Plus Paclitaxel With or Without Bevacizumab as First Line Therapy in Her2-Negative Breast Cancer Patients

This study has been completed.
Information provided by (Responsible Party):
Amgen Identifier:
First received: August 2, 2007
Last updated: October 7, 2015
Last verified: October 2015

This is a phase 2, randomized, placebo controlled, multi-center study to estimate the treatment effect and evaluate the safety and tolerability of AMG 386 in combination with paclitaxel and paclitaxel/bevacizumab in the treatment of subjects with Her2-negative metastatic or locally recurrent breast cancer.

AMG 386 is a man-made medication that is designed to stop the development of blood vessels in cancer tissues. Cancer tissues rely on the development of new blood vessels, a process called angiogenesis, to obtain a supply of oxygen and nutrients to grow.

Condition Intervention Phase
Locally Recurrent and Metastatic Breast Cancer Drug: AMG 386 Placebo Drug: AMG 386 Drug: Bevacizumab Drug: Paclitaxel Phase 2

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Quadruple (Participant, Care Provider, Investigator, Outcomes Assessor)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Randomized, 4-Arm, Placebo-Controlled Phase 2 Trial of AMG 386 in Combination With Bevacizumab and Paclitaxel or AMG 386 Plus Paclitaxel as First-Line Therapy in Subjects With Her2-Negative, Metastatic or Locally Recurrent Breast Cancer
