Brief Summary:
A multicenter, randomized phase III study to compare chemo- versus endocrine therapy in combination with dual HER2-targeted therapy of Herceptin® (trastuzumab) and Perjeta® (pertuzumab) in patients with HER2 positive and hormone-receptor positive metastatic breast cancer.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Metastatic Breast Cancer Drug: pertuzumab Drug: Trastuzumab Drug: Capecitabine Drug: Paclitaxel Drug: Vinorelbine Drug: Docetaxel Drug: Exemestane Drug: Letrozole Drug: Anastrozole Drug: Fulvestrant Drug: Tamoxifen Phase 3

Detailed Description:
Especially for diseases that are not curable such as metastatic breast cancer (MBC), the maintenance of quality of life is one of the main aims of treatments. Adverse events are well-known side effects of any cytostatic treatment and impact the patients' quality of life. Therefore, new treatment options are developed that should stop or at least slow down metastatic spread of cancer without causing negative side effects in terms of high-grade adverse events. For patients with hormone-receptor positive and HER2 positive MBC the combination of HER2-targeted therapy with endocrine therapy has already been proven to be an effective and in many cases valuable alternative to the combination of HER2-targeted therapy with chemotherapy. The high relevance of HER2-neu-targeted/endocrine treatment combinations derives from the fact that potential chemotherapy-related toxicity can be avoided, which in turn positively affects quality of life.The combination of dual HER2-targeted therapy with trastuzumab and pertuzumab plus endocrine therapy might offer a better treatment option in patients with HER2 positive and hormone-receptor positive MBC. However, this combination has not been evaluated and compared to the combination of dual HER2-targeted plus chemotherapy in a prospective randomized phase III clinical trial.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Number of Participants with Adverse Events [ Time Frame: 3 - 9 weeks ]
    safety of a dual HER2-targeted therapy with Herceptin® (trastuzumab) and Perjeta® (pertuzumab) plus endocrine therapy as compared to a dual HER2-targeted therapy with Herceptin® (trastuzumab) and Perjeta® (pertuzumab) plus chemotherapy by the proportion of patients experiencing any adverse event (as defined by the modified adverse event score)


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. quality-adjusted survival [ Time Frame: 3 - 9 weeks ]
    to assess quality-adjusted survival (as assessed by the Q-TWiST method) and to compare it between the two treatment arms

  2. overall response rate (ORR) [ Time Frame: 3 - 9 weeks ]
    compare efficacy between the two treatment arms as assessed by overall response rate (ORR)

  3. incidence of central nervous system (CNS) metastases and their control rate [ Time Frame: 3 - 9 weeks ]
    assess the incidence of CNS metastases and control rate of preexisting CNS metastases

  4. Analysis of Quality of life [ Time Frame: 3 - 9 weeks ]
    assess additional aspects of quality of life based on the evaluation of the European Organization for Research and Treatment of Cancer (EORTC) quality of life questionnaire (QLQ) QLQ-C30 and QLQ-BR23 questionnaires

  5. presence and number of circulating tumor cell (CTC) at different time points [ Time Frame: 6 weeks ]
    determine presence and number of CTC in the peripheral blood at baseline and at different time points after the start of palliative treatment including the time of progression, and to assess the value of CTCs as indicator for therapy success
