Study Description
Brief Summary:
The combination of vinflunine and gemcitabine in advanced breast cancer in comparison to paclitaxel and gemcitabine is based on the following points: the significant antitumour activity of vinflunine in metastatic breast cancer (MBC) as single agent after anthracycline-taxane exposure and recent phase I study results of the vinflunine plus gemcitabine is at least additive and both drugs have a distinct mechanism of action; since taxanes have been approved in the adjuvant setting and are widely used in the treatment of early breast cancer it is worthwhile to assess new combination chemotherapy regimens as first line therapy for metastatic breast cancer.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Advanced Breast Cancer Drug: vinflunine 320 mg/m² as a 20-minute infusion on day 1 of each cycle repeated every 3 weeks gemcitabine 1000 mg/m² IV on day 1 and 8 repeated every 3 weeks Drug: vinflunine plus gemcitabine Drug: paclitaxel plus gemcitabine Phase 3
