Antineoplaston Therapy in Treating Women With Advanced Breast Cancer
RATIONALE: Antineoplastons are naturally-occurring substances that may also be made in the laboratory. Antineoplastons may inhibit the growth of cancer cells.
PURPOSE: This phase II trial is studying how well antineoplaston therapy works in treating women with stage IV breast cancer that has not responded to standard therapy.
Stage IV Breast Cancer
Recurrent Breast Cancer
Drug: antineoplaston A10
Drug: antineoplaston AS2-1
Procedure: alternative product therapy
Procedure: biological therapy
Procedure: biologically based therapies
Procedure: cancer prevention intervention
Procedure: complementary and alternative therapy
Procedure: differentiation therapy
|Study Design:||Primary Purpose: Treatment|
|Official Title:||Phase II Study of Oral Antineoplastons A10 and AS2-1 in Women With Advanced Breast Cancer|
- Determine the antitumor activity of antineoplastons A10 and AS2-1 capsules in patients with advanced breast cancer by determining the proportion of women who experience an objective tumor response.
- Evaluate the adverse effects of and tolerance to this regimen in these patients.
OUTLINE: This is an open-label study.
Patients receive oral antineoplaston A10 and antineoplaston AS2-1 6 to 7 times per day.
Treatment continues for at least 6 weeks. Patients achieving complete or partial response may continue on therapy until disease progression or toxic effects occur.
Patients are followed for survival.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 20-40 patients will be accrued for this study.
