Utilization of Genomic Signature as Decision-making for Adjuvant Treatment of Breast Cancer (SA02)

The recruitment status of this study is unknown. The completion date has passed and the status has not been verified in more than two years.
Verified March 2013 by Institut Paoli-Calmettes.

Method: This multicentric prospective cohort is composed of patients with no metastatic breast cancer selected by tumor's genomic analysis and treated by chemotherapy with Anthracycline without Taxanes (6 cycles of FEC 100).

The patient can be included before or after the surgery and a written consent must be signed for the proteomic and genomic analysis of the tumor.

Patients who have a "good signature" for the genomic analysis will receive the standard chemotherapy.

Primary objective:

  • To compare metastasis free survival at 5 years in a cohort of patients with no metastatic breast cancer, who are selected by their genomic profile of the tumor and received a standard chemotherapy containing Anthracycline, with result of retrospectives studies.

Secondary Objectives:

  • Overall survival.
  • Creation of a circuit (transport-extraction-genomic analysis-result) which allows the beginning of the chemotherapy within 6 weeks following the primary surgery.
  • Histological and seric proteomic exploratory studies.

Further study details as provided by Institut Paoli-Calmettes:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Estimation of metastasis free survival at 5 years of the patients who had a good genomic signature. The metastasis free survival is defined by the time between the histological diagnosis of the breast cancer and the apparition of the first metastasis. [ Time Frame: 5 years ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Time between collection for the genomic signature study and the beginning of the chemotherapy. [ Time Frame: 6 weeks ]
  • Seric and histological proteomic exploratory studies with SELDI-TOF MS to: search correlation with histo-clinical or/and molecular parameter and to identify one or few proteic signature with a prognosis value. [ Time Frame: 6 weeks ]
  • Overall survival. [ Time Frame: 5 years ]

Estimated Enrollment: 375
