The study will be conducted in 3 sequential treatment segments.
Drug: sunitinib alone
sunitinib alone (segment 1): During the first segment, patients will receive single-agent sunitinib for 2 weeks.Drug: sunitinib plus paclitaxel
sunitinib plus paclitaxel (Segment 2): Following Segment 1, patients will begin the second segment, 4 cycles (16 weeks) of neoadjuvant treatment with the combination of sunitinib and paclitaxel.Drug: doxorubicin and cyclophosphamide
doxorubicin and cyclophosphamide (Segment 3): Following Segment 2, patients will receive 4 cycles (8 weeks) of neoadjuvant treatment with AC.
- Change in Interstitial Fluid Pressure (IFP) Induced by Sunitinib Monotherapy [ Time Frame: baseline through end of segment 1 (2 weeks) ]Participants had their tumor IFP measured at baseline, after sunitinib monotherapy (segment 1) and after sunitinib+paclitaxel (segment 2). This outcome measure is the difference of the mean value from the end of segment 1 (sunitinib monotherapy) and the mean baseline value.
- Change in Interstitial Fluid Pressure (IFP) Induced by Paclitaxel Plus Sunitinib After Sunitinib Monotherapy [ Time Frame: end of cycle 1 (sunitinib monotherapy) to end of cycle 5 (paclitaxel/sunitinib therapy) (112 days) ]Participants had their tumor IFP measured at baseline, after sunitinib monotherapy (segment 1) and after sunitinib+paclitaxel (segment 2). This outcome measure is the difference of the mean value from the end of segment 2 (paclitaxel/sunitinib therapy through cycle 5) and end of segment 1 (sunitinib monotherapy) mean value.
- Pathological Complete Response (pCR) Rate for Patients Treated With Sunitinib/Paclitaxel Followed by AC as Neoadjuvant Therapy for Breast Cancer [ Time Frame: screening through surgery ]
- To Evaluate the Safety of Paclitaxel Plus Sunitinib When Given in Combination as Neoadjuvant Therapy [ Time Frame: end of cycle 1 (sunitinib monotherapy) to end of cycle 5 (paclitaxel/sunitinib therapy) ]This measure determines the number of patients who had Grade 3/4 Adverse Events that were related to treatment while the patient was on paclitaxel plus sunitinib.
