A Study to Evaluate Safety and Efficacy of Caelyx in Combination With Cyclophosphamide in the Treatment of Metastatic Breast Cancer (P02948)
Phase II Trial of Caelyx and Cyclophosphamide in Metastatic Breast Cancer
Women with metastatic breast cancer are usually treated with anthracyclines (ie, doxorubicin or epirubicin) but cardiac toxicity limits their use. The aim of this study is to evaluate the safety and efficacy of Caelyx in combination with cyclophosphamide in women with metastatic breast cancer who have received adjuvant anthracyclines with or without a taxane.

Phase 2
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Breast Neoplasm
  • Drug: Pegylated Lyposomal Doxorubicin
    Caelyx 35 mg/m2 intravenously, on Day 1, every 3 weeks, during 6 cycles. Patients still achieving clinical benefit after a total of 6 cycles may continue therapy.
    Other Name: SCH 200746
  • Drug: Cyclophosphamide
    Cyclophosphamide 600 mg/m2, intravenously, on Day 1, every 6 weeks, during 6 cycles (concomitantly with Caelyx). Patients still achieving clinical benefit after a total of 6 cycles may continue therapy.
