    Adjuvant Treatment of Early Stage Breast Cancer

    Description: This randomized phase III trial studies standard or comprehensive radiation therapy in treating patients with early-stage breast cancer who have undergone surgery.
    Investigator: NCI - National Cancer Institute
    Eligibility: FEMALE subjects, 18 y/o and older, with clinically T1-3, N1 breast cancer at the time of diagnosis (before neoadjuvant therapy); clinical axillary nodal involvement can be assessed by palpation, ultrasound, CT scan, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), positron emission tomography (PET) scan, or PET/CT scan
    Status: Please contact site for study status

    Description: This randomized phase III trial studies how well cisplatin or carboplatin (platinum based chemotherapy) works compared to observation in treating patients with remaining (residual) basal-like triple-negative breast cancer following chemotherapy after surgery (neoadjuvant)
    Investigator: NCI - National Cancer Institute
    Eligibility: MALE and FEMALE subjects, 18 y/o and older, with histologically confirmed triple negative (estrogen receptor negative [ER-]/progesterone receptor negative [PR-]/human epidermal growth factor receptor-2 negative [HER2-]) invasive breast cancer, clinical stage II-III at diagnosis

    Title: A Randomized Phase III Trial of Adjuvant Therapy Comparing Doxorubicin Plus Cyclophosphamide Followed by Weekly Paclitaxel with or without Carboplatin for Node-Positive or High-Risk Node-Negative Triple-Negative Invasive Breast Cancer
    Description: This randomized phase III trial studies how well doxorubicin hydrochloride and cyclophosphamide followed by paclitaxel with or without carboplatin work in treating patients with triple-negative breast cancer. Drugs used in chemotherapy, such as doxorubicin hydrochloride, cyclophosphamide, paclitaxel, and carboplatin, work in different ways to stop the growth of tumor cells, either by killing the cells, by stopping them from dividing, or by stopping them from spreading. It is not yet known whether doxorubicin hydrochloride and cyclophosphamide is more effective when followed by paclitaxel alone or paclitaxel and carboplatin in treating triple-negative breast cancer.
    Investigator: NCI - National Cancer Institute
    Eligibility: MALE and FEMALE subjects, 18 y/o and older, with unilateral invasive adenocarcinoma of the breast on histologic examination

    Title: A Randomized Phase II Trial of Tamoxifen Versus Z-Endoxifen HCL in Postmenopausal Women with Metastatic Estrogen Receptor Positive, HER2 Negative Breast Cancer
    Description: This randomized phase II trial studies how well tamoxifen citrate works compared with z-endoxifen hydrochloride in treating patients with breast cancer that has spread to nearby tissue or lymph nodes or other parts of the body and has estrogen receptors but not human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2) receptors on the surface of its cells. Estrogen can cause the growth of tumor cells. Hormone therapy using tamoxifen citrate or z-endoxifen hydrochloride may fight breast cancer by lowering the amount of estrogen the body makes. It is not yet known whether tamoxifen citrate or z-endoxifen hydrochloride is more effective in treating patients with breast cancer.
    Investigator: NCI - National Cancer Institute
    Eligibility: FEMALE subjects, 18 y/o and older, who agree to undergo a standard of care core biopsy of recurrent or metastatic breast cancer to confirm that is ER+ (>= 10% nuclear staining) and HER2 negative, have been previously treated with an aromatase inhibitor (either letrozole, anastrozole or exemestane) either in the adjuvant or metastatic setting, and have primary or secondary endocrine resistant disease.
