This study is a multicentre, open label, non-randomized phase I study. The main objectives of the study are to determine the pharmacokinetic profile of the drug at different dose levels in the patients with Advanced Breast Cancer. Maximum Tolerated Dose (MTD) and safety of Paclitaxel Nanoparticle will also be simultaneously assessed.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • The primary outcomes of the study would be the Pharmacokinetic data at all the four dose levels (220, 260, 310 and 375 mg/m2); Ability to identify a dose higher than 220 mg/m2 that demonstrate better efficacy and manageable toxicity [ Time Frame: Throughout the study ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • evaluation of the effect of Paclitaxel Nanoparticle formulation on QTc. [ Time Frame: Throughout the study ]

Estimated Enrollment: 24
Study Start Date: March 2009
Estimated Study Completion Date: April 2010
Estimated Primary Completion Date: April 2010 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Intervention Details:
    Drug: Nanoxel (Paclitaxel Nanoparticle formulation )
    Nanoxel (Nanoparticle Paclitaxel) at 4 different dose levels of 220, 260, 310 and 375 mg/m2. Each patient will recieve upto 6 cycles.

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years to 65 Years   (Adult)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   Female
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Female patients with histopathologically /cytologically confirmed advanced breast cancer, refractory / recurrent* to previous anthracycline treatment as adjuvant or first line therapy for metastasis.
  • Patients with ER/PR -ve or ER/PR receptor status unknown (defined as no histopathological evidence for confirmation of ER/PR status)
  • Patients must be of 18-65 years of age (inclusive of both)
  • Patients with ECOG performance status between 0 - 2
  • Patients with at least one measurable lesion as per RECIST

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Patients with ER/PR positive status. Patients who demonstrate HER2 over expression will be excluded. Alternatively, the patients enrolled should have previously received trastuzumab. HER2 over expression should be demonstrated by IHC 3+, IHC 2+ or with FISH/CIS.
  • Patients with known history of hypersensitivity to paclitaxel or any other taxane or compounds chemically / biologically related to paclitaxel or excipients.
  • Patients requiring any concurrent chemotherapy, hormonal therapy immunotherapy, therapy with biologicals or radiotherapy for the disease. (Patients requiring local radiotherapy for non- target bone lesion will be included).
  • Patients with known CNS lesions (brain metastasis or carcinomatous meningitis).
