Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to assess the feasibility of dose-dense doxorubicin and cyclophosphamide followed by eribulin mesylate for adjuvant treatment of early stage breast cancer.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
HER2-normal Drug: eribulin mesylate Phase 2

Detailed Description:
This is a multicenter, single-arm Phase II trial to assess the feasibility of dose-dense adjuvant chemotherapy in subjects with early stage (I-III), HER-2 normal breast cancer. A total of 80 adult subjects will be enrolled in order to have 73 subjects who start the eribulin portion of the adjuvant study regimen. After completion of 4 cycles of AC, each subject will begin 4 cycles of eribulin mesylate 1.4 mg/m2 intravenously over 2 to 5 minutes on Days 1 and 8 of every 21 day cycle.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Doxorubicin and cyclophosphamide followed by eribulin mesylate Drug: eribulin mesylate
Dose dense doxorubicin and cyclophosphamide for 4 cycles during the first 8 weeks followed by eribulin mesylate 1.4mg/m2 for 4 cycles during the next 12 weeks.




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Percentage of Participants With Feasibility [ Time Frame: From date of first dose, up to 3 years after the last dose of study treatment, or up to approximately 4 years 2 months ]
    The regimen was considered feasible if the participant was able to complete the eribulin portion without dose delay or reduction. Dose delay was defined as a delay due to eribulin-related adverse event (AE) for more than 2 days for subsequent doses (cycles after the initiation of full dose of eribulin, except holidays, scheduling difficulties and nonclinical logistical issues). If a participant had more than 1 dose omission, delay or reduction due to eribulin-related AE, these events were collectively counted as one entity in the same participant. Participants were followed for approximately 3 years after the last dose of the study treatment. Feasibility rates were calculated with or without growth factor support. In both cohorts, the percentage of participants who completed the eribulin portion of the regimen without a dose omission, delay or reduction due to eribulin-related AE was estimated via the observed completion rate and an exact 90% confidence interval (CI) was constructed.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Number of Participants With Non-serious Adverse Events and Serious Adverse Events (SAEs) [ Time Frame: From date of first dose up to 30 days after the last dose of study treatment, or up to approximately 4 years 2 months ]
    Safety assessments consisted of monitoring and recording all AEs and SAEs, clinical laboratory results, vital signs, physical examinations, Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) performance status, electrocardiograms (ECGs), and left-ventricular ejection fracture (LVEF) by multigated acquisition scan (MUGA) or echocardiogram. An AE was considered a treatment emergent adverse event (TEAE) if the AE onset date was on or after the first dose of study drug and up to 30 days after receiving the last dose of study drug. Treatment-related TEAEs included TEAEs that were considered by the Investigator to be possibly or probably related to eribulin mesylate and/or doxorubicin/cyclophosphamide, or missing causality.

Criteria

Inclusion Criteria

  • Male and female subjects aged greater than or equal to (>=) 18 years
  • Histologically confirmed Stage I to III invasive breast cancer. Subjects may have more than one synchronous primary breast tumor.
  • HER-2 normal as determined by fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) or 0 or 1+ by immunohistochemistry (IHC) staining.
  • Subject is a candidate for chemotherapy in the adjuvant setting. Adjuvant therapy must begin within 84 days of the final surgical procedure for breast cancer.
  • Adequate cardiac function, defined by baseline LVEF >=50 percent (%) by Multiple Gated Acquisition (MUGA) scan or echocardiogram.
  • ECOG performance status of 0 or 1.
  • Adequate renal function as evidenced by serum creatinine less than or equal to (<=) 1.5 mg/dL or calculated creatinine clearance >=40 mL/min per the Cockcroft and Gault formula.
  • Adequate bone marrow function as evidenced by ANC >=1.5 x 10^9/L, hemoglobin >=10.0 g/dL, and platelet count >=100 x 10^9/L.
  • Adequate liver function as evidenced by bilirubin <=1.5 times the upper limits of normal (ULN) and alkaline phosphatase (AP), alanine aminotransferase (ALT), and aspartate aminotransferase (AST) <=3 x ULN.
  • Females of childbearing potential must have a negative urine or beta-human chorionic gonadotropin serum pregnancy test within 2 weeks prior to Cycle 1, Day 1. A urine pregnancy test should be repeated prior to chemotherapy if not conducted within 72 hours of start of treatment. Female subjects of childbearing potential must agree to be abstinent or to use a highly effective method of contraception (e.g., condom + spermicide, condom + diaphragm with spermicide, intrauterine device (IUD), or have a vasectomized partner) having started for at least one menstrual cycle prior to starting study drug and throughout the entire study period and for 30 days (longer if appropriate) after the last dose of study drug. Perimenopausal women must be amenorrheic for at least 12 months to be considered of nonchildbearing potential. Male subjects who are not abstinent or who have undergone a successful vasectomy, who are partners of women of childbearing potential must use, or their partners must use, a highly effective method of contraception (e.g., condom + spermicide, condom + diaphragm with spermicide, IUD) starting for at least one menstrual cycle prior to starting study drug and throughout the entire study period and for 30 days (longer if appropriate) after the last dose of study drug. Subjects with partners using hormonal contraceptives must also be using an additional approved method of contraception (as described previously).
  • Subjects willing and able to comply with the study protocol for the duration of the study and provide written informed consent prior to any study-specific screening procedures with the understanding that the subject may withdraw consent at any time without prejudice.

Exclusion Criteria

  • Stage IV breast cancer.
  • Prior chemotherapy, radiation therapy, immunotherapy, or biotherapy for current breast cancer.
  • Nonmalignant systemic disease (cardiovascular, renal, hepatic, etc.) that would preclude any of the study therapy drugs.
  • Subjects with a concurrently active second malignancy other than adequately treated nonmelanoma skin cancers or in situ cervical cancer.
  • Subjects with known positive human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) status.
  • Pregnancy or breast feeding at the time of study enrollment. Eligible subjects of reproductive potential (both sexes) must agree to use adequate contraceptive methods during study therapy.
  • Subjects with known allergy or hypersensitivity to doxorubicin, cyclophosphamide, or eribulin mesylate.
  • Inability to comply with the study and/or follow-up procedures.
