Sulindac and Docetaxel in Treating Women With Metastatic or Recurrent Breast Cancer
RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die. Combining more than one drug may kill more tumor cells.
PURPOSE: Phase II trial to study the effectiveness of combining sulindac with docetaxel in treating women who have metastatic or recurrent breast cancer.

|Official Title:||A Phase II Trial Of Exisulind With Docetaxel In Patients With Metastatic Adenocarcinoma Of The Breast|
|Study Start Date:||January 2002|
|Study Completion Date:||July 2008|
|Primary Completion Date:||July 2008 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
- Determine the response rate of women with metastatic or recurrent adenocarcinoma of the breast treated with sulindac and docetaxel.
- Determine the time to progression of patients treated with this regimen.
- Determine the toxicity of this regimen in these patients.
OUTLINE: Patients receive oral sulindac twice daily. Patients also receive docetaxel IV over 1 hour on day 1. Courses repeat every 21 days in the absence of disease progression or unacceptable toxicity.
Patients are followed within 3-4 weeks.
