Estimated Enrollment: 99
Study Start Date: May 2011
Estimated Study Completion Date: May 2015
Estimated Primary Completion Date: May 2013 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: docetaxel/gemcitabine
All the patients are locally advanced breast cancer. Patients with a measurable lesion at chest CT. (at least 1 measurable lesion)
Drug: docetaxel
docetaxel - 75 mg/m2, IV (in the vein), every 3 weeks, 4 cycles
Other Name: Doxotel®
Drug: gemcitabine
gemcitabine - 100 mg/m2, IV (in the vein) on day 1 and 8 day of each 28 day cycle, 4 cycles
Other Name: Gemcibine®

Detailed Description:
Neoadjuvant chemotherapy is now standard for patients with locally advanced breast cancer, and this method of treatment has been extended to patients with earlier disease without affecting the treatment outcome. This single arm, multicenter phase II study was designed to evaluate the response rate, toxicity, progression free survival and tumor control rate of docetaxel and gemcitabine in the neoadjuvant setting with locally advanced breast cancer.
