|Study Design:||Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Double Blind (Subject, Investigator)
Primary Purpose: Prevention
|Official Title:||Breast Cancer Prevention With Fenretinide in Young Women at Genetic and Familil Risk. A Phase III Randomized Clinical Trial|
- Breast cancer incidence [ Time Frame: every 6 months for 15 years ]The aim of the proposed trial is to assess the efficacy of fenretinide, (4 hydroxyphenilretinamide, 4-HPR), a vitamin A derivative, in reducing the incidence of breast cancer (BC) in healthy young premenopausal women at increased familial/genetic risk for BC (i.e. BRCA1 or BRCA2 mutation carriers or subjects at high risk of being carriers). The primary endpoint is the incidence of invasive BC and ductal intraepithelial neoplasia (DIN), histologically diagnosed.
- Incidence of other non-invasive breast disorders, ovarian cancers and other cancers. [ Time Frame: every 6 months for 15 years ]
Incidence of other non-invasive breast disorders, ovarian cancers and other cancers.
Early intermediate biomarkers of efficacy after 12, 36, and 60 months of treatment. We will also evaluate the percent change in circulating biomarkers of the IGF system, androgens, retinol binding protein (RBP-4), insulin, blood glucose and VEGF, after 12, 36 and 60 months of treatment.
