Hoffmann-La Roche
  Purpose

The main objective of the trial is to compare Invasive Disease-Free Survival (IDFS) of patients randomised to treatment with adjuvant chemotherapy alone or to adjuvant chemotherapy with 1 year of bevacizumab.

The secondary objectives of this trial are to:

  • compare Overall Survival (OS), Breast Cancer-Free Interval (BCFI), Disease- Free Survival (DFS) and Distant Disease-Free Survival (DDFS) of patients randomised to treatment with adjuvant chemotherapy alone or to adjuvant chemotherapy in combination with 1 year of bevacizumab
  • evaluate the safety and tolerability of bevacizumab

An exploratory sub-study (not reported here) was to identify biomarkers (from tumour or serum) predictive of toxicity and for the level of benefit from the addition of bevacizumab to standard adjuvant systemic treatment.

    IDFS, was a composite endpoint defined as the time from randomization until the date of the first occurrence of one of the following events: Ipsilateral invasive breast cancer recurrence (same breast); Ipsilateral (same side of body) local regional invasive breast cancer recurrence (axilla, regional lymph nodes, chest wall, and/or skin); Distant recurrence (evidence of breast cancer in any anatomic site);Death attributable to any cause; Contralateral (opposite side of the body) invasive breast cancer or Second primary non-breast invasive cancer.

    IDFS, was a composite endpoint defined as the time from randomization until the date of the first occurrence of one of the following events: Ipsilateral invasive breast cancer recurrence (same breast); Ipsilateral (same side of body) local regional invasive breast cancer recurrence (axilla, regional lymph nodes, chest wall, and/or skin); Distant recurrence (evidence of breast cancer in any anatomic site);Death attributable to any cause; Contralateral (opposite side of the body) invasive breast cancer or Second primary non-breast invasive cancer. The percentage of participants with and without IDFS Events by the time of the data cutoff is presented.

    OS was defined as the time from randomization to death attributable to any cause. Patients for whom no death is captured in the clinical database up to the clinical cut-off date are censored at the last time they were known to be alive.

  • Percentage of Participants With Overall Survival (OS) Event [ Time Frame: Event driven (until data cut off: 30 June 2014: up to 77 months) ]

    An adverse event was considered any unfavorable and unintended sign, symptom, or disease associated with the use of the study drug, whether or not considered related to the study drug. Preexisting conditions that worsened during the study were reported as adverse events.

    A serious adverse event is any experience that suggests a significant hazard, contraindication, side effect or precaution that: results in death, is Life-Threatening, required in-patient hospitalization or prolongation of existing hospitalization, results in persistent or significant disability/incapacity, is a congenital anomaly/birth defect or is medically significant.
