The purpose of this study is to further advance the ability to practice personalized medicine by learning which new drug agents are most effective with which types of breast cancer tumors and by learning more about which early indicators of response (tumor analysis prior to surgery via magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) images along with tissue and blood samples) are predictors of treatment success.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Determine whether adding experimental agents to standard neoadjuvant medications increases the probability of pathologic complete response (pCR) over standard neoadjuvant chemotherapy for each biomarker signature established at trial entry. [ Time Frame: Post surgery based on upto 24-week treatment ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Establishing predictive and prognostic indices based on qualification and exploratory markers to predict pCR and residual cancer burden (RCB). [ Time Frame: Blood and Tissue Collection: Baseline, Post-Randomization, Pre-AC, Pre- and Post-Surgery ]
  • To determine three- and five-year relapse-free survival (RFS) and OS among the treatment arms. [ Time Frame: Three- and Five-Year Post-surgery Follow-up ]
  • To determine incidence of adverse events (AEs), serious adverse events (SAEs), and laboratory abnormalities of each investigational agent tested. [ Time Frame: Post-Randomization, Pre-AC, Pre-Surgery, Post-Surgery upto One Year during follow-up ]

Detailed Description:
I-SPY 2 will compare the efficacy of novel drugs in combination with standard chemotherapy with the efficacy of standard therapy alone. The goal is identify improved treatment regimens for subsets on the basis of molecular characteristics (biomarker signatures) of their disease. As described for previous adaptive trials, regimens that show a high Bayesian predictive probability of being more effective than standard therapy will graduate from the trial with their corresponding biomarker signature(s). Regimens will be dropped if they show a low probability of improved efficacy with any biomarker signature. New drugs will enter as those that have undergone testing complete their evaluation.
