  Purpose
This randomized clinical trial studies how well minocycline hydrochloride works in reducing chemotherapy induced depression and anxiety in patients with stage I-III breast cancer. Minocycline hydrochloride may prevent changes in memory and thinking and improve the quality of life of breast cancer patients receiving chemotherapy.

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Double (Participant, Investigator)
Primary Purpose: Supportive Care

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Changes in Center for Epidemiological Studies Depression Scale (CES-D) scores [ Time Frame: Baseline to 9 weeks ]
    The 95% confidence intervals of the depression change from baseline to the end of study and the difference between the treatment and placebo groups. The influences of covariate, such as disease stage and depression drug usage, will be considered in the mixed models as exploratory analyses.

  • Changes in the State Trait Anxiety Index (STAI) scores [ Time Frame: Baseline to 9 weeks ]
    The 95% confidence intervals of the anxiety change from baseline to the end of study and the difference between the treatment and placebo groups. The influences of covariate, such as disease stage and depression drug usage, will be considered in the mixed models as exploratory analyses.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Changes in Hamilton Anxiety Rating Scale scores [ Time Frame: Baseline to 9 weeks ]
    The 95% confidence intervals of the anxiety change from baseline to the end of study and the difference between the treatment and placebo groups. The influences of covariate, such as disease stage and depression drug usage, will be considered in the mixed models as exploratory analyses. In addition, change overtime of all outcomes for each individual will be plotted to visually explore any patterns and to generate hypothesis to be tested in future studies.

  • Changes in Hamilton Rating Scale for Depression scores [ Time Frame: Baseline to 9 weeks ]
    The 95% confidence intervals of the depression change from baseline to the end of study and the difference between the treatment and placebo groups. The influences of covariate, such as disease stage and depression drug usage, will be considered in the mixed models as exploratory analyses. In addition, change overtime of all outcomes for each individual will be plotted to visually explore any patterns and to generate hypothesis to be tested in future studies.

  • Changes in inflammatory blood markers [ Time Frame: Baseline to 6 months ]
    Scatter plots will be used to explore the pair-wise correlation among the changes of CES-D and STAI scores, blood biomarkers changes, and PET/MRI measures. A statistical model will be used to explore whether the blood based biomarkers and PET/MRI measures can be used to predict the changes in CES-D and STAI scores, which then could be used as potential surrogate markers in future studies.

Detailed Description:

PRIMARY OBJECTIVES:

I. To evaluate anxiety and depression in women with stages I-III breast cancer during the first 8 weeks of doxorubicin-based adjuvant therapy randomized to receive either minocycline (minocycline hydrochloride) or placebo.

II. To evaluate markers of neuro-inflammation as assessed by blood based inflammatory cytokines and C11-choline positron emission tomography (PET) in women with stages I-III breast cancer during the first 8 weeks of doxorubicin-based adjuvant therapy randomized to receive either minocycline or placebo.

OUTLINE: Patients are randomized to 1 of 2 arms.

ARM I: Beginning 1 week prior to chemotherapy, patients receive minocycline hydrochloride orally (PO) twice daily (BID) for 9 weeks.

ARM II: Beginning 1 week prior to chemotherapy, patients receive placebo PO BID for 9 weeks.

After completion of study treatment, patients are followed up for 6 months.
