  Purpose

Women with ER negative breast cancer have a higher risk of the cancer returning in the breast after whole or partial breast radiation than women with ER positive breast cancer. In a small study at Johns Hopkins, women were treated with partial breast irradiation and chemotherapy given at the same time. This combined treatment was safe and women with ER negative breast cancer did just as well as women with ER positive cancer.

We are now testing in a bigger study whether giving partial breast irradiation and chemotherapy at the same time (our new method) has the same side effects and outcomes as giving partial breast irradiation and chemotherapy at different times(older method). In this study women who had their breast cancer removed but need radiation to the breast will be randomized to partial breast irradiation at the same time as chemotherapy or partial breast radiation at a different time than chemotherapy. Randomization is like flipping a coin but in this study about 2 of every 3 women will get the new method.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Grade 3 or 4 short-term toxicity [ Time Frame: 6-7 month follow-up ]
    The primary endpoint will be short term (from baseline to the 6-7 month follow-up) grade 3 or 4 toxicity: confluent moist desquamation, pitting edema, ulceration, hemorrhage or necrosis. Our primary objective is to determine if chemotherapy and PBI can be given concurrently with short term toxicity comparable to standard of care, whole breast radiation (WBR) without chemotherapy, and not inferior to that of PBI plus chemotherapy given sequentially.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • 1st tumor recurrence [ Time Frame: 6-7 months ]
    Evaluate and compare any first tumor recurrence (local plus distant) between arms of the study.

  • Long-term grade 3-4 toxicities [ Time Frame: Q6-12M 12-18, 24-30, 36-42, 48-54, 60-66, 72-78, 84-90, 96-108, 120 ]
    Evaluate long term toxicity with concurrent chemotherapy and compare between arms of the study.

  • Time to tumor recurrence [ Time Frame: Q6-12M 12-18, 24-30, 36-42, 48-54, 60-66, 72-78, 84-90, 96-108, 120 ]
    Evaluate and compare Ipsilateral Breast Tumor Recurrence (IBTR), local recurrence, distant recurrence, and disease free survival.

  • Quality of Life assessment [ Time Frame: Q6-12M 12-18, 24-30, 36-42, 48-54, 60-66, 72-78, 84-90, 96-108, 120 ]
    Evaluate and compare quality of life.

  • Quantify risks and benefits comparison for each arm [ Time Frame: Q6-12M 12-18, 24-30, 36-42, 48-54, 60-66, 72-78, 84-90, 96-108, 120 ]
    Give a description of the risks and benefits observed in each arm of the study over the duration of the trial.

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years to 100 Years   (Adult, Senior)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   Female
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Criteria

Inclusion Criteria Age ≥ 18 years. Patient must have histologically confirmed (by routine H&E staining) invasive adenocarcinoma of the breast. Primary tumor ≤ 4cm and 0-3 positive axillary lymph nodes (T1-2, N0-1, M0). Margin negative surgery. For subjects with two breasts, they must have had a bilateral mammogram prior to surgery. Patient must have a Medical Oncology consult with the recommendation of chemotherapy. Recommended regimens are as follows: Cyclophosphamide and Doxorubicin (AC); Taxotere, Doxorubicin and Cyclophosphamide (TAC); Taxotere and Cyclophosphamide (TC); or Taxotere, Carboplatin and Trastuzamab (TCH) prior to registration. The use of additional chemotherapy, hormonal therapy or Trastuzumab after the initial regimen is at the discretion of the Medical Oncologist. Other primary regimens are possible but the PI must be notified prior to enrollment. Partial breast irradiation must be scheduled to begin less than 71 days from the last breast surgical procedure. ECOG performance status ≤ 1. Women of child-bearing potential must have a negative (urine or blood) pregnancy test within 6 weeks prior to start of protocol therapy. Women of childbearing potential must also use effective non-hormonal contraception while undergoing radiation therapy. Ability to understand and the willingness to sign a written informed consent document.

Exclusion Criteria Patients who have received neoadjuvant chemotherapy or neoadjuvant hormonal therapy for the current cancer. Patients with squamous or sarcomas of the breast. Patients who have active local-regional disease prior to registration. Patient has other prior malignancy except for adequately treated basal cell or squamous cell skin cancer, in sity cervical cancer, or any other cancer from which the patient has been disease-free for less than 5 years.

Patient is pregnant. Patient has a serious medical or physciatric illness which prevents informed consent or adherence with treatment Study team (PI, Co-I, and or research nurse) may deny enrollment if in the study team's opinion, the candidate may not be adherent to the treatment protocol including scheduled follow-ups.
