Brief Summary:
An open-label, randomized three-arm Phase II trial to explore the efficacy of BIBW 2992 as a single agent versus lapatinib versus trastuzumab in patients with HER2-positive treatment-naïve Stage IIIa locally advanced breast cancer. Additional information will be obtained on the safety profile and pharmacokinetics of BIBW 2992.

Active Comparator: Lapatinib
Lapatinib tablets 1500 mg daily.
Drug: lapatinib
lapatinib tablets 1500 mg daily

Active Comparator: Trastuzumab
Trastuzumab 4mg/kg i.v. week 1, followed by 2mg/kg i.v. weekly.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Objective Response (OR) [ Time Frame: Tumour assessments were performed at screening, day 22 and day 43. ]
    Objective response (complete or partial) was assessed according to RECIST 1.0 criteria.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Number of Participants Who Achieved Clinical Benefit (CB) [ Time Frame: Tumour assessments were performed at screening, day 22 and day 43. ]
    CB was defined as CR, PR or stable disease (SD) and was assessed according to RECIST criteria regardless of treatment status.

  2. Change From Baseline in the Diameter of the Primary Target Lesion. [ Time Frame: 3 weeks or 6 weeks ]
    Change was based on the primary lesion only rather that the sum of the target lesions as most patients had only one lesion.

  3. Plasma Concentration of Afatinib [ Time Frame: Day 7 ]
    Individual drug plasma concentrations of afatinib after multiple oral administrations at day 7

  4. Changes in Biomarker in Tumour Biopsies [ Time Frame: Screening, day 22, day 43 ]
    Changes in the biomarkers (Phospho-MAP-Kinase (MAPK), Total MAPK expression, EGFR, HER2, Phospho-EGFR and -HER2, Proliferation marker (Ki67 and p27), Apoptotic index (cleaved caspase 3), Phosphate and tensin homolog (PTEN), HER2 homodimerisation by HERmark assay and Phospho AKT) from biopsy tissue.
