This research study is studying an investigational drug as a possible treatment for breast cancer that is positive for the protein Human Epidermal Growth Factor Receptor 2, also known as HER2-positive breast cancer.
The drug involved in this study is:
-ado-trastuzumab emtansine (T-DM1)
|Condition or disease||Intervention/treatment||Phase|
|Breast Cancer||Drug: T-DM1||Phase 2|
This research study is a Phase II clinical trial. Phase II clinical trials test the safety and effectiveness of an investigational drug to learn whether the drug works in treating a specific disease. "Investigational" means that the drug is being studied and research doctors are trying to find out more about it—such as the safest dose to use and the side effects it may cause.
The purpose of this research study is to examine the long-term benefits of T-DM1 with regard to breast cancer and take a closer look at the side effects experienced by participants receiving T-DM1.
The FDA (the U.S. Food and Drug Administration) has not approved T-DM1 for use in patients with stage I, II, or III breast cancer, but it has been approved for use in advanced, previously treated, HER2-positive breast cancer.
T-DM1 is an antibody-drug conjugate; it is made up of an antibody (trastuzumab) linked to a cytotoxic drug, DM1 (chemotherapy). T-DM1 functions as a targeted cancer therapy because it targets HER2-positive breast cancer cells directly, limiting exposure of the rest of the body to chemotherapy. More specifically, the trastuzumab in T-DM1 first binds to the HER2 protein on the surface of the breast cancer cells and the DM1 then enters the cells and can cause them to die, preventing tumor growth

- 5-year invasive disease-free survival rate [ Time Frame: 5 years ]To evaluate invasive disease-free survival (IDFS) for patient receiving T-DM1
- Recurrence-free survival [ Time Frame: 2 years ]To evaluate recurrence-free survival (RFS) for patient receiving T-DM1, defined as the time from study enrollment to disease recurrence and will not include death as an event.
- Overall Survival [ Time Frame: 2 years ]To evaluate overall survival (OS) for patient receiving T-DM1, defined as the time from study enrollment to death attributable to any cause (i.e. death from breast cancer, non-breast cancer cause, or from unknown cause).
- Site of first recurrence [ Time Frame: 2 years ]To evaluate site of first recurrence for patient receiving T-DM1, which will be tabulated as frequencies and relative frequencies.
- Incidence Rate of each Toxicity (Safety) [ Time Frame: 2 years ]To evaluate adverse events for patient receiving T-DM1, defined as adverse events of all grades utilizing CTCAE v4
- Incidence Rate of Cardiac-Related Adverse Events (left ventricular systolic dysfunction) [ Time Frame: 2 years ]To evaluate cardiac-related adverse events for patients receiving T-DM1, defined as incidence of symptomatic left ventricular systolic dysfunction
- Incidence Rate of Cardiac-Related Adverse Events (cardiac death) [ Time Frame: 2 years ]To evaluate cardiac-related adverse events for patients receiving T-DM1, defined as incidence of cardiac death
- Incidence Rate of Cardiac-Related Adverse Events (decreased ejection fraction) [ Time Frame: 2 years ]To evaluate cardiac-related adverse events for patients receiving T-DM1, defined as decrease in ejection fraction by at least 10 percentage points below baseline or to below 50%.
