Brief Summary:
This phase II trial on the assumption that abraxane and cisplatin combination therapy is efficacy in metastatic breast cancer.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Metastatic Breast Cancer Drug: Abraxane and Cisplatin combination Phase 2

Detailed Description:
The rationales for the combination of Abraxane and cisplatin include that either drug has antitumor activity; they have different mechanisms; no cross-resistance are documented between them, and there have been some preclinical evidences indicating synergistic effects between the two agents. This phase II study will be undertaken to evaluate combination of cisplatin and weekly abraxane in terms of efficacy and safety in MBC patients.

  8. Prior hormonal treatment allowed but must be discontinued 14 days prior to study entry.
  9. Participation in any investigational drug study within 4 weeks preceding treatment start.
  10. Blood transfusions or growth factors to aid hematological recovery within 2 weeks prior to study treatment start.
  11. Significant medical condition that would make treatment or follow-up on this protocol difficult or problematic in the opinion of the treating oncologist.
  12. Concurrent other malignancy at other sites or previous other cancer within the last 5 years, with the exception of adequately treated in situ carcinoma of cervix uteri or basal or squamous cell carcinoma of the skin or a contralateral breast cancer.
