Primary Outcome Measures:
  • To evaluate the objective response rate (ORR) after first-line treatment with single-agent eribulin mesylate in subjects with locally recurrent or metastatic HER2-negative breast cancer. [ Time Frame: six 21-day cycles or discontinuation whichever is first ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • To assess the incidence of adverse events of eribulin mesylate [ Time Frame: from Baseline until End of Treatment (within 21 days of last dose) ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • To assess time to first response [ Time Frame: from date of first dose to first date of confirmed objective response (CR or PR) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • To assess duration of response [ Time Frame: from date of objective response (CR or PR) to the date of progressive disease or death ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • To assess progression-free survival (PFS) [ Time Frame: from first dose to date of progressive disease or death whichever is first ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Enrollment: 56
Study Start Date: February 2011
Study Completion Date: August 2013
Primary Completion Date: March 2012 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Experimental Drug: Eribulin mesylate
Eribulin mesylate 1.4 mg/m2 will be administered as an intravenous (IV) infusion (over 2 to 5 minutes) on Days 1 and 8 of each 3-week cycle.

Detailed Description:
This is a multicenter, single-arm, Phase 2 trial to assess the efficacy and safety of single-agent eribulin mesylate for first-line treatment of subjects with locally recurrent or metastatic human epidermal growth factor receptor (HER2)-negative breast cancer. A total of 52 adult female subjects will be enrolled and treated with eribulin mesylate (1.4 mg/m2 as an intravenous [i.v.] infusion over 2 to 5 minutes on Days 1 and 8 of each 3-week cycle).

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older   (Adult, Senior)
Genders Eligible for Study:   Female
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
