Experimental: Palbociclib + letrozole + trastuzumab +/- goserelin
Palbociclib is an oral drug given at a dose of 125 mg daily on Days 1-21 of each 28-day cycle for a total of 4 cycles.
Other Name: Ibrance
Letrozole is an oral drug given at a dose of 2.5 mg orally once a day. It will be taken continuously (Days 1-28 of each cycle) until the day of definitive surgery.
Other Name: Femara®
Other Name: Herceptin®
Goserelin is given subcutaneously at a dose of 3.6 mg on Day 1 of each cycle. Goserelin will be continued (once every 28-days) after the completion of Cycle 4 of palbociclib if required.
Other Name: Zoladex
Procedure: Breast surgery
Standard of care
Procedure: Research tumor biopsy
Baseline, cycle 1 day 15, and surgery
Procedure: Research bone marrow (OPTIONAL)
Baseline and surgery
Procedure: Research blood sample
Baseline, cycle 1 day 15, surgery, and yearly post-surgery for 5 years
Genetic: Research blood for germline DNA
Procedure: Blood for detection of circulating tumor cells
- Pathologic complete response (pCR) rate [ Time Frame: Completion of 4 cycles of treatment (approximately 16 weeks) ]A pathologic complete response (pCR) is defined as no histology evidence of invasive tumor cells in the surgical breast specimen and sentinel or axillary lymph nodes.
- Safety and tolerability of palbociclib in combination with neoadjuvant letrozole and trastuzumab (or FDA approved biosimilar) as measured by frequency of adverse events [ Time Frame: 30 days after completion of neoadjuvant therapy (approximately 21 weeks) ]-The descriptions and grading scales found in the revised NCI Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events (CTCAE) version 4.0 will be utilized for all toxicity reporting.
- Patient reported outcomes as measured by NCI PRO-CTCAE [ Time Frame: Completion of treatment (approximately 16 weeks) ]
- 10 item questionnaire with 2 questions per item
- The first part of the question has answers ranging from None to Very Severe.
- The second part of the question has answers ranging from Not at All to Very Much
- PRO-CTCAE responses are scored from 0 to 4, and there are no standardized scoring rules yet established for how to combine attributes into a single score or how best to analyse PRO-CTCAE data longitudinally.
- PRO-CTCAE scores for each attribute (frequency, severity and/or interference) will be presented descriptively
