Molecular Mechanisms of Clinical Resistance to Targeted Therapy Among Patients With Breast Cancer

This study is currently recruiting participants. (see Contacts and Locations)
Verified May 2017 by Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center
Sponsor:
Collaborator:
National Cancer Institute (NCI)
Information provided by (Responsible Party):
Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center
ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier:
NCT00897702
First received: May 9, 2009
Last updated: May 10, 2017
Last verified: May 2017
  Purpose
The purpose of this study is to learn why certain drugs stop working in patients.In lab studies, tumors become resistant in several ways. Specific molecules seem to change and this may be why therapy stops working. However, we do not know if the same molecules change in patients. This study is being done to see if they do change. If we learn more about how patients become resistant, we may be able to offer better treatment in the future.

Further study details as provided by Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • To look for mutations in druggable oncogenic pathways in tumors progressing on anti-HER2 therapy or hormonal therapy [ Time Frame: 3 years ]
  • To characterize the activity of the PI3K signaling pathway in progressive breast tumors using proteomic methods [ Time Frame: 3 years ]
  • To develop new laboratory models of treatment refractory breast cancer from human tumor specimens [ Time Frame: 3 years ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • To look for mutations in druggable oncogenic pathways in tumor progressing on breast cancer targeted therapies [ Time Frame: 3 years ]
  • To evaluate dynamic proteomic changes in response to inhibition of the RTK/PI3K/ATK/mTOR pathway. [ Time Frame: 3 years ]
  • To characterize the genetic heterogeneity of progressive, metastatic tumors using next generation sequencing [ Time Frame: 3 years ]

Biospecimen Retention:   Samples With DNA

Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

All patients:

  • Diagnosed with progressive, recurrent or metastatic HER2+ or ER+ breast cancer.

Cohort 1

  • Patients who previously received treatment with anti-HER2 therapy (including trastuzumab, pertuzumab, TDM1, or lapatinib) as part of adjuvant chemotherapy and now have progressive or recurrent breast cancer or, patients who previously (or currently) received anti-HER2 therapy as part of a regimen for metastatic breast cancer and subsequently experienced.
  • Evidence of disease progression or recurrence after prior therapy (e.g. radiologic progression by RECIST criteria or new metastasis).
  • Prior tumor biopsy (may be original) defined as HER2+ by amplification by FISH (>1.9 gene copy number) or IHC 3+.

Cohort 2

  • Patients who previously received treatment with hormonal therapy (including tamoxifen, toremifene, raloxifene, anastrozole, letrozole, exemestane, fulvestrant, ARN-810) as a part of adjuvant therapy and now have progressive or recurrent breast cancer or patients who previously (or currently) receive hormonal therapy as part of a regimen for metastatic breast cancer and subsequently experienced evidence of disease progression.

Cohort 3

  • Patients not eligible for Cohorts 1 or 2, but previously received treatment of any other kind for breast cancer.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Patients who are unable to consent to a biopsy.
  • Patients for whom a repeat biopsy would be medically unsafe
