|Official Title:||Efficacy and Tolerability of Nanoparticle Albumin Bound Paclitaxel (Abraxane) in Patients 65 and Older With Locally Advanced or Metastatic Breast Cancer|
- Tolerability (grade 2-5 toxicity, neuropathy grade 2 or higher, dose reductions, delays or interruptions) using National Cancer Institute (NCI) Common Toxicity Criteria (CTC) version 4.0 [ Time Frame: 30 days after completion of last course of study treatment ]Rates and associated 95% exact Clopper and Pearson binomial confidence limits will be estimated. Tables will be created to summarize the toxicities and side effects by course, organ, and severity for all patients. We will describe toxicities on a patient by patient basis. Numbers of courses received and dose reductions will be tabulated.
- Determination of efficacy based upon best response to treatment and time to disease progression [ Time Frame: 30 days after completion of last course of study treatment ]Rates and associated 95% exact Clopper and Pearson binomial confidence limits will be estimated for objective response rate (complete response [CR] + partial response [PR]) and clinical benefit rate (CR + PR + stable disease [SD]) as determined by Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumors (RECIST). Progression free survival will be estimated using the product limit method of Kaplan and Meier.
- Use of a cancer-specific geriatric assessment to predict the need for dose reduction, dose delays, or occurence of grade 2-5 toxicity and neuropathy grade 2 or higher. [ Time Frame: 30 days after completion of last course of study treatment ]General linear models and graphical methods will be used to explore factors as identified by a cancer-specific geriatric assessment that may be predictive of toxicity/dose reduction or dose delays. Assessment consists of an evaluation of the individual's functional status, comorbid medical conditions, cognition, nutritional status, psychological state, and social support.
|Study Start Date:||June 2012|
|Estimated Primary Completion Date:||December 2017 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
Experimental: Treatment (chemotherapy)
Patients receive paclitaxel albumin-stabilized nanoparticle formulation IV over 30 minutes on days 1, 8, and 15. Courses repeat every 28 days in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
Drug: paclitaxel albumin-stabilized nanoparticle formulation
Other Names:Other: questionnaire administration
PRIMARY OBJECTIVES: I. To evaluate the tolerability (grade 2-5 toxicity, neuropathy grade 2 or higher, need for dose reductions, or delays) of weekly nab-paclitaxel (paclitaxel albumin-stabilized nanoparticle formulation) in older adults with locally advanced or metastatic breast cancer.
SECONDARY OBJECTIVES: I. To evaluate the efficacy (response and time to progression) of weekly nab-paclitaxel in older adults with locally advanced or metastatic breast cancer using a stratification factor based on patient age (at least 5 patients age 75 years or older and no more than 15 patients age 65-70 years).
II. To explore predictors of the need for dose reduction, dose delays, or grade 2-5 toxicity and neuropathy grade 2 or higher based on a cancer-specific geriatric assessment.
OUTLINE: Patients receive paclitaxel albumin-stabilized nanoparticle formulation intravenously (IV) over 30 minutes on days 1, 8, and 15. Courses repeat every 28 days in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
After completion of study treatment, patients are followed up periodically.
