Eli Lilly and Company
  Purpose
An open-label randomized Phase II study in order to explore two different sequential anthracycline-based neoadjuvant treatment regimens in female patients with primary, operable breast cancer (T2-T4/N0-2/M0).

Condition Intervention Phase
Breast Cancer Drug: pemetrexed Drug: cyclophosphamide Drug: doxorubicin Drug: docetaxel Phase 2

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Randomized Phase 2 Trial of Doxorubicin Plus Pemetrexed Followed by Docetaxel, Versus Doxorubicin Plus Cyclophosphamide Followed by Docetaxel, as Neoadjuvant Treatment for Early Breast Cancer

Further study details as provided by Eli Lilly and Company:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Number of Participants With a Pathological Complete Response [ Time Frame: surgery after eight 21-day cycles of chemotherapy ]
    pathological assessment of tissue removed during surgery to determine if tumor tissue is still present after chemotherapy


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Number of Participants With a Clinical Tumor Response After the First Sequence of Chemotherapy [ Time Frame: Cycles 1-4 (21-day cycles) ]
    The number of participants with a clinical tumor response based on measurement of tumor size after the first sequence of chemotherapy, without a second confirmatory tumor measurement, per protocol.

  • Number of Participants With a Clinical Tumor Response After the Second Sequence of Chemotherapy [ Time Frame: Cycles 5-8 (21-day cycles) ]
    The number of participants with a clinical tumor response based on measurement of tumor size after the second sequence of chemotherapy, without a second confirmatory tumor measurement required, per protocol.

  • Number of Patients With Histologically Negative Axillary Lymph Node Status at Surgery [ Time Frame: surgery after eight 21-day cycles of chemotherapy ]
    Histologically negative is defined as no malignant cells present in the axillary lymph nodes during surgery.

  • Disease-free Survival [ Time Frame: baseline through post surgery, follow-up for 3 years post-surgery (up to 5.2 years after randomization) ]
    Disease-free survival is defined as the time from date of study enrollment (randomization) to first date of progressive disease (PD) or death from any cause. PD per Response Evaluation Criteria In Solid Tumors (RECIST) criteria is at least a 20% increase in the sum of longest diameter (LD) of target lesions taking as references the smallest sum LD recorded since the treatment started or the appearance of one or more new lesions. For patients not known to have died as of the data cut-off date and who do not have progressive disease, disease-free survival was censored at the last contact date.
